Ulysse Nardin Majestic Moonstruck Watch

Sep 18, 2009
Similar to many others Swiss watch-making houses, Ulysse Nardin has always been captivated by the idea of creating astrology-themed watches or the ones that would reflect the mysteries of the cosmos.

The Moonstruck watch, issued as a limited series, echoes the rotation of the Moon around the Earth, alongside with the Suns relative position.

It is accomplished with help of two discs, traveling around the large topographical map of the Earth, located in the center of the watch. The detail, worthy of noting, is that the Moon does not only revolve around the Earth, but it is also presented as an orb that rotates around its own axis to depict the moon phase. The whole structure created looks very stylish.

The watch hands, which come out from under the Earth globe, are coated with luminous compound.

The timepiece also demonstrates a GMT hand, which is adjusted with an accuracy of plus or minus one hour. Thus, a world-timer watch is created and the wearer is enabled to use the second-time zone. It is attainable due to the pushers, located on the left side of the case.

The Ulysse Nardin Moonstruck watch is distinguished by an amazing design, featuring an alluring ceramic bezel, as well as a mother-of-pearl dial.

The watch case exposes the dimensions of 46mm x 16.3mm, with the width and thickness indicated respectively. Its impressive size is necessary for incorporating the complex self-winding mechanical movement. The water-resistance of the model is down to 100 meters.

The famous watchmaker Ulysse Nardin has launched the Moonstruck watch in limited series of 500 items, sculptured in 18k red gold, and 500 items, rendered in platinum.

All timepieces, produced by Ulysse Nardin, represent a perfect alliance of extreme aesthetic and technical refinement.
