DESTINED TO BECOME A FLAGSHIP TIMEPIECE
Nardin, renowned Swiss watch making company since 1846, has recently
announced Nardin's latest horological masterwork - the Acqua Perpetual.
The incredibly precise, yet easy-to-use Acqua Perpetual possesses
a self-winding movement and is water resistant to 300m with a sapphire
crystal. It also features a big date display in a double window
available in a stainless steel case. All parts touching the wrist
are in skin-friendly titanium. It comes with a set of two bracelets,
one in stainless steel with a special buckle extension to wear it
over a diving suit and the other with reinforced rubber and titanium.
Conceived to be worn daily, it is the only perpetual calendar that
adjusts forward and backward in seconds over the quick corrector
position of a single crown, even in the year 2100, when other perpetual
mechanical watches will have to be returned to the factories for
resetting. All adjustments, from the minute hand to the year indicator
are wholly synchronized and with a few quick rotations of the crown
all displays, i.e. minute, hours, days, month or even years are
moved forward or backward.
" This is truly a one-of-a-kind creation in the evolution of horology
" said Schnyder. " Dr. Oechslin has been concentrating on developing
this piece for years and it is yet another stunning example of his
engineering prescience ".
Over the years Ulysse Nardin has been awarded over 18 gold medals
and over 4'300 prizes of chronometrie excellence by some of the
most prestigious international institutions. Two of their outstanding
creations, the Astrolabium Galileo Galilei and the Planetarium Copernicus,
both designed by Dr. Oechslin made it into the Guinness Book of
Records. The company genuinely embodies the spirit of technological
mastery in the field of watch making and it continues to set the
standard by which all other watchmakers are judged. In his typically
understated fashion, Dr. Oechslin, famed creator of the Acqua Perpetual
and the acclaimed "Trilogy of Time" remarked, "Time is simply a
human construct, but being able to measure it precisely is a timeless
concept in itself".
