A few weeks ago, Ulysse Nardin unveiled the latest variant of its famous Perpetual Calendar model, exclusively for its mono-brand boutiques worldwide. The original Perpetual Calendar watch was introduced two decades ago and since than it has become one of the collectors’ favorites.
Ulysse Nardin Perpetual Calendar Boutique Edition is housed in a round platinum case which measures 43mm in diameter. Underneath the antireflective sapphire crystal glass lies a beautiful blue dial which comprises applied curved baton indices with luminous dot accents for better legibility in low light conditions, skeletonized and lume filled hands, as well as the displays which are nicely spaced and perfectly legible at-a-glance.
The elegant dial features a second time zone indicator, a big date double window at the 1 o’clock position, and permanent home time indicated by the 3rd hand. The weekday and month are displayed in smaller apertures which are located on left and right side of the center, while the abbreviated year digit is placed just above the 6 o’clock position. The small seconds sub-dial is situated at the 9 o’clock position.
The beating heart of the new Perpetual Calendar Boutique Edition timepiece is the in-house manufactured caliber UN-32 self-winding chronometer movement with the official rating certificate (COSC certified). According to manufacturer, it is the only perpetual calendar to allow forward and backwards adjustment over one single crown.
The impeccable mechanism is built on 34 jewels and promises at least 48 hours of power reserve when fully charged. Furthermore, the sapphire case back allows the look at the inner beauty of the movement and reveals the secrets of Ulysse Nardin’s beautiful watchmaking tradition. The exclusive boutique edition timepiece is protected against the ingress of water up to 30 meters (circa 100 feet).
The Ulysse Nardin Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Boutique Edition (with the referent number 329-10/93-BQ) is issued in a limited series of only 250 pieces worldwide. The watch is accessorized with a dark blue leather strap, fitted with a folding platinum clasp.
