As with many a timepiece from UlysseNardin, this Classic Dual Time Enamel timepiece unites three fundamentals: technical avant-garde with the use of Silicium in the movement; in-house manufacture with its UN 324 caliber entirely designed and produced by the company; and stunning craftsmanship with its eggshell GrandFeu enamel dial.
Grand Feu designates an enameling technique that goes back to the 17th century, and that is practiced today only by a handful of craftsmen, including those at UlysseNardin specialists DonzéCadrans. Its delicate beauty has an eternal quality. On the dial, over sized roman numerals and black hands set off the double date display at 2o’clock, and the over sized small seconds at 6 o’clock.
Equipped with the patented Dual Time zone feature, this timepiece is instantly adjustable both forwards and backwards with a mere push of a button.
These buttons feature at the 8 and 10 o’clock positions. When pressed, the pushers adjust the hour hand to a different time zone while the home time indicator at 9 o’clock continues its 24-hour cycle. An impressive mechanical complication that is very easy to use – one of UlysseNardin’s guiding ideals. The time and date setting is another example of the watchmaker’s perpetual quest for innovation in action. The selector is integrated in the crown allowing to change settings without pulling and pushing the crown.
The self-winding UN-324 manufacture movement with its 48-hour power reserve is set in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 42 mm, water resistant to 30 m, and held by a chic leather strap.
An enviable fusion of form and function, and a tribute to exquisite craftsmanship, the Classic Dual Time Enamel is a limited edition of 99 timepieces available exclusively at UlysseNardin boutiques.
