To mark the seventh consecutive year as an official sponsor of the world’s largest megayacht exhibition Monaco Yacht Show, Ulysse Nardin has launched a new Dual Time Manufacture Monaco 2015 Limited Edition timepiece. This newcomer also honors the event’s 25th Anniversary.
The original rendition of Ulysse Nardin’s iconic Dual Time model is housed in stainless steel case which measures 42mm in diameter. Its sporty case features deep blue aesthetic as rich as the ocean’s depths.
The fresh and new face of this year’s Monaco watch shows a second time zone feature, where the time zone setting is simplified. The future owner of the watch can easily set both date and time, without any need for pushing or pulling the crown. Everything can be done by simply turning the crown forwards and backwards.
The beating heart of the new Ulysse Nardin Dual Time Manufacture Monaco watch is the in-house designed caliber UN-32 which animates the functions for hours, minutes and small seconds. The self-winding movement is built on 53 jewels and it is capable to store enough power to keep the watch ticking for approximately 2 days (48 hours).
The impeccable mechanism is partially revealed via the sapphire case back. The back view reveals an uncluttered view of the movement and its amazing finish. Furthermore, a blue inscription on the oscillating weight serves as a reminder that this timepiece relies on the Ulysse Nardin’s patented inertial balance wheel with silicium hairspring. The rotor is also decorated with two beautiful medallions: one with the brand’s logo on a blue background and the other representing the Principality of Monaco’s coat of arms in white and red.
The dial also reveals the inscription „Monaco Yacht Show 2015“. Underneath the front sapphire glass lies a small seconds counter which is located at the 6 o’clock position, the large date in two circled apertures which is positioned at the 2 o’clock position and the second time zone counter which is situated at the 9 o’clock position.
The watch is constructed to resist water pressure up to 30 meters (about 100 feet). Ulysse Nardin Dual Time Manufacture Monaco 2015 Edition (the referent number is 3243-132LE/93-MON) comes with a deep blue leather strap, fitted with a folding buckle.
This year, the Monaco Yacht Show is hosted at Port Hercules from September 23 – 26 under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
