The contemporary, bold design of watches from the Executive collection makes them instantly recognizable. Their easy-to-use functionality makes them indispensable. The new Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon is exceptionally airy and light, despite its large 45 mm size, thanks to an ultra-light titanium and ceramic case featuring bulky lugs and a black ceramic bezel, a skeletonized movement and a leather strap with carbon structure where as much material as possible is taken out of the construction while preserving the instantly recognizable aesthetics of the line.
The signature features of the Executive collection – over- sized Roman numerals and hour-markers and imposing sword-shaped hands – seem to to be suspended in mid- air. With its deep black color, the raised rectangular bridge stresses the skeleton watch’s place in Ulysse Nardin’s eminently contemporary collection. The movement has been carefully hollowed out to highlight these identifying features while preserving the power of its instantly recognizable aesthetics.
The watch’s finely shaped silhouette is matched by the power and performance of its beating heart, vibrating at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. Its complex mechanics, revealed in all their glory by the transparent sapphire crystal and coated with PVD and ruthenium, sketch a series of lively lines.
With its exceptional power reserve of 170 hours and tourbillon made from silicium, the manually wound UN-171 Manufacture movement indicating the hours and minutes is tuned for endurance and accuracy. Sophisticated yet technical, a variety of finishes and colors en- hance the refined architecture of this Ulysse Nardin Manufacture caliber.
To securely attach this distillation of avant-garde creation to the wrist, the carbon fiber-style strap is connected to the case by three distinctive claws and is fastened by a folding titanium clasp.
