A EXPLOSIVE COLOR CHART
The Le Locle-based watch company is closing the summer season in style by unveiling a new limited edition, full of mysterious architecture, transparency and color explosion.
As enchanting as a sunset on the high seas, when the sky is shrouded in pink and purple hues and the sun changed into a huge orange ball seems to melt into the dark mass of the ocean, the Blast Rainbow explodes with color on the wrist. Limited to only 50 pieces, this new watch by Ulysse Nardin has a multiple personality made of mystery in transparency, darkness in nuance, motionlessness in movement.
With this edition, the Le Locle watchmaker reinterprets the regulator developed by the time mechanic Abraham-Louis Breguet at the beginning of the 19th century and makes it twirl freely at 6 o’clock on the dial. The location of this flying tourbillon echoes the platinum micro-rotor placed at 12 o’clock, which enables the automatic winding of the UN-172 caliber. This fully openworked 2.5hz manufacture movement, which delivers 72 hours of power reserve, is housed in a full black case with a diameter of 45mm, machined in titanium DLC and ceramic. Bending the famous X, Ulysse Nardin‘s visual signature, which seems to emerge from its rectangular frame on the face of the watch, the hour markers and the DLC steel bezel are set with 50 baguette-cut stones: rubies and sapphires in orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and pink form a rainbow gradation. At the center of this architectural and contrasting universe, two blackened baton-type hands, highlighted with white luminescent material, display the hours and minutes.
