Majestic Ulysse Nardin Genghis Khan Haute Joaillerie

Apr 21, 2009
The Ulysse Nardin Genghis Khan Haute Joaillerie is a spectacular blend of the traditional mechanical watchmaking and Haute Joaillerie.

The case of the unique watch is sculptured in 18K rose or white gold. It sparkles with 60 white or black baguette diamonds paving the bezel. Moreover, the lugs are set with 28 white or black baguette diamonds.

The interior part of the bezel is adorned with 48 white and 12 black baguette diamonds or 48 black and 12 white baguette diamonds marking the hours.

Each of the 148 high quality baguette diamonds is meticulously cut by a professional precious-stone cutter and integrated into the case.

The black onyx dial of the Ulysse Nardin Genghis Khan Haute Joaillerie watch reveals Westminster Carillon Tourbillon. The Tourbillon bridge has inherited the original shape of the bridges featured by the Tourbillons produced by James Pellaton for Ulysse Nardin at the beginning of the 20th century.

The perfectly finished manual-winding movement the caliber UN-78 - has all the parts decorated, angled and finished by hand. The movement provides 80 hours of power reserve. The four gongs of the Westminster each produce a different chime (Mi-Do-Re-Sol).

When you activate the repeater, the hour sound is Sol, while the minute sound is Mi. It is remarkable that the four gongs sound in three different sequences for the quarters.

The dial of the timepiece
demonstrates four hand-crafted warriors in action. The figures are manually carved in 18K rose or white gold. The movements of the Jaquemarts are in synchrony with the sound of the gongs.

The movements of one of the warriors on the left side of the dial are in synchrony with the gong that sounds the hours, while the movement of the horse rider indicates the minutes. All Jaquemarts, as well as the musician, move with sounds of the quarters.
The dial is protected by anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

The Genghis Khan Haute Joaillerie watch, reviewed by watches.infoniac.com, will be available in a limited edition of 30 pieces. The case measures 42 mm in diameter and is 30-meter water-resistant. It incorporates a case back in anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

The Ulysse Nardin Genghis Khan Haute Joaillerie watch is presented on an alligator leather strap fitted with a folding buckle.
