ULYSSE NARDIN – Ulysse Anchor Tourbillon
The Le Locle watchmaker has been steeped in the ocean world since its very foundations as proven by the anchor on its current logo. The brand has been designing marine chronometers since the company was first founded in 1846 by Ulysse Nardin (1823-1876). The limited edition Ulysse Anchor Tourbillon (18 for each shade of gold) beautifully encapsulates the watchmaker’s passion for the big blue. The undulating engine-turned dial is coated in translucent Grand Feu enamel to depict the soft sea swell. Two silver or gold “poire” hands glide over the Breguet-style Arabic hour numerals and minute track on the chapter ring. The waves washing over the blue dial meet around the tourbillon spinning at 6 o’ clock and topped by a power reserve indicator. The powerful manual wind calibre in the 44mm case fuels the 8-day power reserve. Price: 84,000 CHF (rose gold) – 88,000 CHF (white gold). Sharmila Bertin
