Classico Amerigo Vespucci
Named after the famous Florentine explorer Amerigo Vespucci (1454-1512), the Italian navy’s training ship is still in service after launching in 1931 and its three rigs of square sails are sailing the high seas on the Classico’s enamelled dial. The artisans at Ulysse Nardin have recreated a miniature version of the military frigate, its black hull’s two white strips and 2800m² of hessian sails beneath a stormy blue sky. Captured in a 40mm rose or white gold case, the enamel Amerigo Vespucci dial decorated with colours and decadent detail lies beneath three hands which spring from the 26 sails. The hours, minutes and seconds are brought to life by a COSC-certified UN-815 chronometer calibre. The self-winding mechanical movement also provides a 42-hour power reserve. 30 of each gold model are available. Price: 39,800 CHF (red gold) – 42,900 CHF (white gold)
