Introducing the Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture

Watchmaker Ulysse Nardin founded his business in Le Locle in 1846. The brand famous for its pocket and marine chronometers is celebrating its 170th anniversary in 2016. To commemorate its legacy, the brand has designed a timeless limited edition watch (170 available) that also comes in a more contemporary version: Classico Manufacture.


Both timepieces have a 40mm steel case and functions fuelled by the self-winding UN-320 calibre which provides a 48-hour power reserve. The exclusive model’s dial is awash with white Grand Feu enamel bearing blue Roman hour numerals and a minute track; two blue leaf-shape hands track the hours and minutes in the centre whilst the small seconds wrap around the date at 6.

The second model has a blue sunburst dial with baton-shape hour markers and applied silver Roman numerals.

Price: 8,500 CHF (enamel dial) – 7,500 (blue dial)
