Ulysse Nardin - A Marriage between Sun and Moon

Ulysse Nardin A Marriage between Sun and Moon

Focus on the Moonstruck Blast

When Ulysse Nardin extends its exploration of the oceans to that of the universe, the brand places its brilliant favorite watchmaker at the helm: Ludwig Oechslin, an expert in astronomical complications. It also brings together two high-flying models – Blast and Moonstruck – in a bold new combination. The eminently contemporary, all-conquering Blast Moonstruck offers the wearer not only dual time and world time functions with its 24 time zones (easily adjustable via the pushers 8 and 10 o’clock), but also enables him to follow the tidal coefficients and the course of the Sun and Moon around the Earth. This extremely complex mechanism causes the moon phase indicator to perform a daily full turn following the path of the Sun (in relief and bronzite), while also causing it to make one complete revolution of the dial in 29.5 days (the length of one lunar cycle). Why not ask for the Moon when you can have the Sun too?
