Ulysse Nardin The brand and DFS Present Sharks in Macau Exhibition
Explor the Underwater World and Discover Ulysse Nardin Watches
Xploring has become Ulysse Nardin’s motivation, and the result is a universe of X-factor: X like an adventure, X like our deepest desires, X for the unknown, X for what’s forbidden, bold and exciting. To bring this sense of exploration to life, Ulysse Nardin has partnered with DFS Group, the world’s leading luxury travel retailer, on the Sharks in Macau exhibition at T Galleria by DFS, Macau, City of Dreams. Inspired by the discovery of the mysterious underwater world, the pop up features Ulysse Nardin’s first interactive shark photobooth in Asia Pacific where adventurers can dive into the deep sea and experience a thrilling moment with ferocious and dangerous sharks suddenly appearing and attacking courageous divers.
To celebrate the opening of the pop up store, Ulysse Nardin presents the below novelty and high complication pieces:
The SKELETON X case, reshaped and very small, a mere 42mm, is perfectly on-trend: more angular, more masculine, less round. Its shape-within-shape-within-shape geometry - an X formed by four of the indexes is framed in a rectangle, in turn inside a circle - delights the eye. Inside and clearly visible beats one of the star innovations of the watch’s antecedent: a super-light balance wheel in silicium, extra-wide, with nickel flyweights and stabilizing micro-blades. The new Manufacture movement, the UN-371 caliber has 96-hour power reserve can be read through the back by means of windows, like those in the barrel. The SKELETON X eXists in four different satin-finish versions: satin-finish titani-um blue, satin-finish titanium black, satin-finish rose gold or matte-finish Carbonium ® GOLD.

The FREAK X, the little cousin of its “Freak antecedents”, stands out as the entry point into the FREAK collection. It has a crown for time correction, which breaks with one of the most iconic as-pects of the previous crown-less FREAK models. The sizing is tighter - 43mm. The baguette move-ment is still a carousel, turning once on itself every hour to indicate the time. It is simpler, bolder, and has fewer wheels. It has no dial and no hands - the central bridge acts as a minute hand and one of the wheels indicates the hours.
