The amazing Ulysse Nardin watch is instantly identifiable due to its alluring aventurine dial, embellished with a richly animated circus scene. The display exposes six figures, hand-carved in 18 ct gold.
When the minute repeater lever is switched on, the monkey starts meddling into the ballgame of the clown. This very movement marks the hour chiming. The quarters, meanwhile, are indicated when the trainer with the whip reaches out to the tiger. The moment this tiger stretches its paw, the minutes are indicated. Activating of the chiming mechanism causes the bear to bow in front of the ballet dancer.
Animating all the functions mentioned above is a manually-wound movement, which offers a 48-hour power reserve.
This fascinating Circus Minute Repeater is offered with a 42 mm case, rendered in 18 ct white gold. On its front side it is armed with a sapphire crystal. The water-resistance of the case is assured to 30 meters.
The novel Ulysse Nardin Circus Minute Repeater watch is affixed to an alligator leather strap, enhanced with a folding clasp. The watch has been launched in a limited edition of 30 pieces.
