Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon

Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon

Prepare to be seduced by this new edition of Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon that expresses its characteristic technical performance and bold design in blue ceramic and ultra-light titanium.

Executive Skeleton Tourbillon

At the heart of the refined architecture of the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon timepiece is the UN-171 manufacture movement. This movement has it’s complex mechanics stripped to a bare minimum. Showing the essential beauty of the inner workings which is fully revealed by its bold, aerial design. A design which takes the oversized Roman numerals, sword markers and raised rectangular bridge of the Executive collection and makes them sing with a renewed power.

Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon

Nestled in the pure lines of the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon’s mechanical movement is a flying tourbillon, made in-house at the Swiss manufacture and comprising silicium parts. Widely celebrated as one of the most difficult complications to achieve in mechanical timekeeping, the beauty of this tourbillon is fully displayed through the fine tracery of its form. Yet another impressive feature of the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon is the power reserve – extended to a life-saving 7 days.

The substantial character of the 45mm Executive Skeleton Tourbillon is deceptive: this piece is in fact ultra-light. The titanium case with its blue ceramic bezel is barely felt on the wrist, and pioneering silicium parts contribute to its featherlight weight while achieving precision performance. To securely attach this distillation of avant-garde creation to the wrist, the blue carbon effect leather strap is attached to the case by three distinctive claws.

This timepiece means business and celebrates the technical savoir-faire, pioneering expertise and artistic sensibility of Ulysse Nardin.
