Introducing the Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon
Ulysse Nardin dropped anchor in the nautical world in 1846 and is still exploring maritime watchmaking paths and sailing the high seas with amazing designs such as the new Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon.
Its wood inlay dial is inspired by the longitudinal design of sailboat decks with light teak slats under a blue aluminium boom (cylindrical rigging perpendicular to the mast to rotate the sail) held in place by halyards and winches bearing the minute hand. The retrograde hand glides over a semi-circular translucent blue bridge featuring the white minute track. The jumping hours appear in a double display at 12 and the flying tourbillon spins at 6.
The 44mm white gold case houses the manual wind UN-630 calibre which fuels the 48-hour power reserve.
Price: 280,000 CHF
