Ulysse Nardin unveils its first timepiece featuring an exclusive skeleton tourbillon caliber. Incorporating the very latest silicon technology, it is an exquisite expression of the brand’s pioneering spirit; fully developed and manufactured in-house.
Purity and transparency.
Skeletonizing is a subtle art that requires both watchmaking know-how and an artistic sensibility. The aim is to reveal the inner workings of the movement by reducing the structure of components to a bare minimum, allowing light to penetrate freely through. Ulysse Nardin’s Skeleton Tourbillon Manufacture is a brilliant example of this endeavor.
The Skeleton Tourbillon Manufacture is an elegant showcase for this exceptional know-how: nestled within the hand-wound mechanical movement is a flying tourbillon that comprises a balance spring, anchor and escapement wheel made from silicon. Ulysse Nardin has been a forerunner in the use of silicon, which it featured in a watch for the first time in 2001.
Recalling a Ulysse Nardin caliber from 1922, the back bears a screwed-in plate engraved with the serial number, making each timepiece unique. The power reserve offers an impressive duration of 170 hours.
