Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture special edition

Ulysse Nardin launched a limited edition Classico collection timepiece in celebration of 170 years of fine mechanical watchmaking.

The Classico Manufacture is driven by an in-house movement entirely conceived and developed by the Swiss manufacture, the UN-320 Caliber, with a silicium hairspring and anchor escapement that deliver superior accuracy. The movement is set within a classically-designed steel edition timepiece at the center of which is the “Grand Feu” enameled dial. On the dial, the hour, minutes, small seconds and date are at 6 o’clock – a feature of the Classico collection’s different executions.  Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture special edition
Crafted in a limited edition of 170 – one for every year of Ulysse Nardin‘s existence – the Classico Manufacture enables wearers to easily set the date backwards and forwards by using the stop seconds feature with a mere pulling of the crown; and rely with confidence on the 48-hour power reserve.Side of Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture special edition
The unique dial is handcrafted in-house at Donzé Cadrans, a member of the Ulysse Nardin group of companies, and a rare specialist in the delicate art of enameled watch dials. The process of “Grand Feu” enamel is a traditional decorative technique mastered by only a handful of craftsmen in the world. Usually a white or pale biscuit color, the beautiful “Grand Feu” method began in the 17th century, taking its name from the incredibly heat re-quired to fuse the enamel powder in the kiln – between 760 and 900° C.Front of  Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture special edition
In this limited edition Classico, the dial is a shimmering white, with blue roman numeral display. Held in its 40 mm steel case with a leather strap, this latest addition to the Classico collection reveals its pedigree in every detail.
