Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillon

Oct 10, 2008
The Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillon is an exceptional-beauty timepiece. It is created as a perfect union of the high art of watchmaking and the exquisite art of jewelry-setting. The timepiece is adorned with an amazing total of 568 top quality baguette diamonds and 234 baguette cut royal blue sapphires.

The Royal Blue Tourbillon's round-shaped platinum case, measuring 43 mm in diameter, is set with 128 baguette diamonds and 57 blue sapphire baguettes, each precious stone cut by a highly professional stone-cutter to make it ideally fit the case shape.

The platinum bracelet coupled with the watch is a masterpiece on its own, being set with 432 baguette diamonds and 176 blue sapphire baguettes.

The beauty of the timepiece is further revealed through the crown embellished with 8 baguette diamonds and 1 cabochon sapphire.

The Ullyse Nardin watch houses the Caliber UN-79 manual -winding movement, with bridges and main plates being crafted in blue sapphire. The Flying Tourbillon seems to be floating in the air. The skeletonized movement parts are united in perfect symmetry. Total transparency reigns in the mechanism, yet one cannot help wondering what is holding the flying tourbillon revolving weightlessly in its cage.

The outstanding mechanism has been created according the principles of James Pellaton, one of the most renowned watchmakers in Le Locle.

One more peculiarity of the movement is the invisible winding system. The movement is wound through a circular rack mechanism. When the movement is being wound, some mysterious force seems to be setting cogs and wheels in motion.

The 36-jewel movement gives an advantage of a 100-hour power reserve.
The case construction incorporates an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and an anti-reflective sapphire crystal case back. It is 30-meter water resistant.

The Ulysse Nardin timepiece is also available on an alligator leather strap fitted with a platinum folding buckle set with 16 diamonds and 16 sapphires.

The Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillon will be available in a limited edition of only 30 pieces.
