Ulysse Nardin: Michelangelo UTC


Ulysse 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".
