Ulysse Nardin Marine Grand Deck Tourbillon in rose gold
Launched last year, this innovative timepiece is back in 2017 in a limited edition of 18 pieces crafted in 5N rose gold.
When it was launched in 2016, the Marine Grand Deck Tourbillon - a 18-piece limited edition in white gold - received the rapt attention of the entire Haute Horlogerie industry. With its highly original time display that evokes the boom of a ship, it incorporates the cutting-edge technology, innovative mechanisms and fine craftsmanship that have made the Ulysse Nardin name.
For 2017, the Marine Grand Deck Tourbillon emerges from Le Locle, Switzerland in a warm color scheme: a limited edition of 18 pieces crafted in 5N rose gold.
Ulysse Nardin's craftsmanship is clearly displayed by the detail on the dial: finely crafted in pin oak, its unique marquetry is a lifelike depiction of a ship’s deck. The slightly darker wood of this edition is the color of chocolate, enhancing the rose gold of the case and lugs.
The technical avant-garde so acclaimed by the international press and watchmaking professionals is evidenced by the patented time mechanism, a revolutionary new take inspired by a yacht’s boom, ropes and winches working together to hoist the sails. The jumping hour is visible in a double aperture under the maritime symbols at 12 o’clock, in white for excellent visibility. Quick time correction is enabled with the pusher at 2 o’clock.
The minutes are displayed in gold on a spinel arc across the center of the dial, with the golden boom drawn across to show exact time.
Employing the UN-630, a 60-second flying tourbillon with manual winding movement, the Marine Grand Deck Tourbillon has a 48-hour power reserve and is water resistant to 100 m.
