New Executive Skeleton Tourbillon Arrives from Ulysse Nardin

Executive Skeleton Tourbillon

Excellence in featherweight form. Airy and barely light enough to be felt on the wrist, the new Executive Skeleton Tourbillon is nonetheless the center of all attention.

Transparent yet powerful, this sleek watch exudes modernity in no uncertain terms. Within an ultra-light titanium and ceramic case, it showcases the aesthetic codes of the Executive collection, making way for the essential.

The balance spring and escape
wheel are made of silicium.

Distinctive and modern, the Executive collection unabashedly flaunts its generously sized attributes. It embodies the avant-garde spirit fueled by know-how and inventiveness that has guided Ulysse Nardin throughout its 170 years of existence. Expressing an exploratory nature steeped in watchmaking expertise, the new Executive Skeleton Tourbillon timepiece combines lightness, purity and technical features in a creation full of strong character.

Reigning atop its category, the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon presents unparalleled lightness, despite its substantial size – 45mm in diameter – and its character capable of competing with the heavyweights of watchmaking excellence. This triumph takes the form of a round titanium case, water-resistant to 30 meters, which is topped with a ceramic bezel that matches the crown in black. Dressed in a dark shade, its athletic case middle further enhances the sleek and translucent mechanics that power the watch.

In the middle of the ring, it is all about the essentials. The signature features of the Executive collection – oversized Roman numerals and hour-markers and imposing sword-shaped hands – seem to be suspended in midair. With its deep black color, the raised rectangular bridge stresses the skeleton watch’s place in Ulysse Nardin’s eminently contemporary collection. The movement has been carefully hollowed out to highlight these identifying features while preserving the power of its instantly recognizable aesthetics.

The titanium case has a 45mm diameter
and is topped with a ceramic bezel.

The watch’s finely shaped silhouette is matched by the power and performance of its beating heart, vibrating at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. Its complex mechanics, revealed in all their glory by the transparent sapphire crystal and coated with PVD and ruthenium, sketch a series of lively lines. With its exceptional power reserve of 170 hours and tourbillon made from silicium, the manually wound UN-171 manufacture movement indicating the hours and minutes is tuned for endurance and accuracy. Sophisticated yet technical, a variety of finishes and colors enhance the refined architecture of this Ulysse Nardin Manufacture caliber.

To securely attach this distillation of avant-garde creation to the wrist, the carbon fiber-style strap is connected to the case by three distinctive claws and is fastened by a folding titanium clasp.
