Ulysse Nardin Mads Mikkelsen wears a Ulysse Nardin watch in Cannes
The Danish actor chooses rose gold and black Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon for premiere of "Arctic".
In Cannes to present his new adventure film, Arctic, Mikkelsen chose a watch in his image: elegant, sturdy and free-spirited. The Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon – in rose gold and black - is a perfect complement not only to the role he plays but also to his off-screen character. It is a watch designed for risk-takers, for those who understand that success is ten percent inspiration and ninety percent perspiration, for men who know that art is subjective, yet beauty need not be sacrificed to efficiency.
Directed by Joe Penna, Arctic stars Mikkelsen as a plane crash survivor in a hostile climate who, having missed an opportunity for rescue, must decide if he waits for another opportunity or ventures into uncharted territory and attempt to save himself. Strong and confident like ancient Greek mariner Ulysses before him, Mikkelsen’s role as an adventurer on a life-changing expedition through Northern Europe to study the climate changes occurring there is a theme in perfect harmony with the Swiss watch Manufacture’s interest in and dedication to preserving the environment.
The Executive Skeleton Tourbillon chosen by Mikkelsen has a 45mm rose gold case, black ceramic bezel and the iconic executive rectangle at the center of the skeleton movement. The timepiece is powered by the patented UN-171 movement.
