Watchers are all too familiar with the Ulysse Nardin luxury watch‘s connection with navigation. In the 19th century, a marine astronomical chronometer was created for the explorers who braved the ocean. Following this origin, the brand also gave birth to the nautical series wristwatch. surface. Some time ago, the Watch House also photographed a representative work of the nautical series, which incorporates the Grand Feu enamel craftsmanship and the style of the tourbillon with large complex functions. Today, I will take real pictures to bring watch friends to reminisce about this classic. wrist watch.
This Nautical Grand Feu enamel tourbillon watch was launched at the 2017 Geneva Watch Fair. It has been 5 years since then. At that time, this watch featured three self-produced technical highlights, namely artistic craftsmanship, complex movement, avant-garde Technology, so this nautical watch, it can also be said that Athens has integrated the core watchmaking concepts.
The watch is made of stainless steel, and the stainless steel bezel also has a coin pattern design on the side. The size is 43 mm and the thickness is 12 mm, which is slightly larger, but the thickness is properly controlled. The shell is mainly decorated with polishing process, and the left side also retains the design of the Athens classic nameplate, and the independent number of the watch will be engraved on the top. cheap replica watches
The screw-in crown on the left side is engraved with the brand anchor logo on the top, and the whole body is covered with rubber to increase friction, which is convenient for the wearer to grasp and adjust the winding. There are also crown shoulder guards on both sides. .
The white Grand Feu enamel plate of this watch comes from the Donzé Cadrans workshop. Ulysse Nardin has been working closely with this independent enamel workshop in Le Locle, Switzerland, and acquired the enamel directly in 2011. The workshop has continued to innovate and optimize this extremely complex process.
As one of the representative arts of Athens, enamel technology is relatively basic. Although it is not as sophisticated as cloisonné enamel and micro-painted enamel, it is still very difficult to ensure its pure effect. From the real pictures, the effect of this watch is indeed pure white and flawless, combined with a bit of gem-like gloss, showing a simple and elegant beauty. The dial layout of the fake watch inherits the design of the brand's early marine astronomical clock, which is very recognizable. The combination of the track scale, Roman numeral hour markers and hands is also very retro. 12 o'clock is the power reserve display. The power reserve is very important for the navigation clock, and the clock cannot be stopped. Therefore, when the power reserve is insufficient during sailing, it is necessary to find and replenish it in time to ensure accurate travel time.
At 6 o’clock, the tourbillon produced by Athens itself makes one revolution in 60 seconds. Compared with the traditional tourbillon, the flying tourbillon does not block the front and cancels the upper bracket. The visual effect of the operation is more beautiful and the viewing experience is higher. On this picture, it can also be clearly seen that the silicon parts used by Athens for it, silicon is the last of the three self-produced highlights mentioned at the beginning.
As a watch series representing the origin of the connection between Athens and the sea, nautical elements are naturally everywhere. Through the back transparent design, you can clearly appreciate the double anchor hollow oscillating weight of this UN-128 movement, and the movement is also fully integrated. Embellished with circular Côtes de Genève, brushed, with fish scales on the invisible base. The movement is equipped with a silicon escapement and hairspring made in Athens, and a full chain can provide 60 hours of power reserve.
The watch is equipped with a black leather strap with a stainless steel folding clasp, and Athens also provides a tape option for the watch.
This nautical tourbillon is actually compared with the new design of the 175th anniversary. Although the design is the same style, you will find that the 175th anniversary represents a purely traditional watchmaking style. Type lugs, crown shoulder pads, transparent back and 100-meter waterproof performance, even the screw-in crown is covered with rubber, and rubber strap styles are also available. These diverse elements will be more like luxury sports. The fake luxury watches can take into account sports, leisure and formal wear at the same time, which is very versatile. Enamel and flying tuo is a combination that you can never get tired of seeing. Although the size is 43 mm, the thickness is properly controlled. My wrist circumference of 16.5 is actually very good.
