Ulysse Nardin Creates Cresta Limited Edition Watch

Feb 04, 2010
To celebrate the 125th birthday of the universally-famous St. Moritz Tobogganing Club, the prominent watchmaking company Ulysse Nardin has issued a limited series of 12 pieces to be commercialized solely and exclusively at the Cresta Club House in St. Moritz.

The Cresta Limited Edition watch represents a timekeeper, incorporating a silicium escapement mechanism. The heart of the Ulysse Nardin watch is an automatic mechanical calibre UN-160 movement, set with 52 jewels. It is equipped with a balance wheel, oscillating at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement offers a respectable power reserve of 50 hours.

Besides indicating hours and minutes, the watch displays a large date, presented via a double aperture, endowed with a quick set corrector in either direction, as well as a small seconds counter. Every watch from the limited edition mentioned has received the COSC-certification.

The Cresta Limited Edition watch employs a case, sculptured in 18-carat white gold. It frames a three-dimensional dial, which echoes the legendary colors of the Cresta Club.

This spectacular display also features hand-engraved 18-carat white gold plates inscribed with the commemoration dates of the Anniversary. The dial exposes the small seconds sub-dial, located at 6 oclock and the 2-digit date exhibition window, positioned at 2 o'clock.

The new Ulysse Nardin watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is teamed with a blue leather strap.
