Last week Haute Time had the chance to visit the new Ulysse Nardin boutique in New York City. The boutique, which is located in the Ritz-Carlton on the edge of Central Park, housed some pieces we had previously only seen in photo, including the absolutely exceptional Genghis Khan.
Here’s your exclusive look at what we saw:
Genghis Khan Westminster Carillon Tourbillon Jaquemarts Minute Repeater
This piece took our breath away when we saw it in-store. The 42mm 18K rose gold case, which is set with 120 baguette diamonds, houses a black onyx dial with gold automatons. On the hour, quarter hour and minute the figures come to life along with the Westminster chime. The one minute tourbillon is also visible on the dial. Limited to an edition of 30 pieces.
This 43mm 18K rose gold Perpetual Calendar timepiece boasts a blue ceramic bezel. The silver dial features hours and minutes, big date display, permanent home time display and GMT Perpetual Calendar with dual time function. The calendar displays can be corrected instantly using only the watch crown. It is also the first perpetual calendar that allows the wearer to simultaneously turn all calendar displays backward. The El Toro is completed by a rubber strap with ceramic deployant clasp.
This 36mm x 39mm white gold piece houses the Caliber UN-310, the first self-winding caliber for a woman’s watch produced and designed in-house by Ulysse Nardin. The bezel, dial, horns and crown are all set with diamonds. The white mother-of-pearl dial features hours, minutes, small seconds, and date at 6 o’clock. A pusher at at 4 o’clock allows simplified selection of winding, adjusting the date and time setting.
This 45mm 18K white gold timepiece is an evolution of Ulysse Nardin’s iconic Freak. True to the 2001 original, the Freak Diavolo also silicium, this time in its hairspring and throughout the majority of its escapement. Its name refers to the devilish-looking power reserve backing, with boasts red horns and a black cloak-like backdrop. The openworked dial features hours, as well as small seconds on the flying tourbillon.
