The “GMT Perpetual” is an execution in a red gold case and one in a platinum case, both numbered and limited to 250 pieces. Click here to see the very first pictures …
The design of the new “GMT Perpetual” is very classical and straightforward compared to other executions and interpretations we have seen of that legendary Ulysse Nardin perpetual calibre before. To refresh your memory let me quickly outline the essentials: In 1996 Ulysse Nardin introduced the world’s most functional perpetual calendar. The master of watch innovation Ludwig Oechslin created it. The timepiece, named the Perpetual Ludwig, marked a major milestone in watchmaking history. It allowed the forward and backward adjustment of all calendar displays over a single crown, eliminating the need to return the watch to the manufacturer in case of setting mistakes. Unlike the standard lever system, the timepiece revealed the very first perpetual calendar mechanism driven by wheels and gears.
In my eyes even today this perpetual Ulysse Nardin timepiece with its GMT-function is still the leader of the pack. The watch seems to be pretty new since not even on the Ulysse Nardin website anything is mentioned yet…
Enjoy my pictures!
I had to take them under not ideal light conditions so they are not perfect – sorry!
