As China celebrates the Year of the Horse, Ulysse Nardin has jumped into the celebrations too with a bang. The brand pays tribute to the animal spirit with the Ulysse Nardin Classico Horse. The timepiece features a 40mm 18K rose gold case with an AR-coated sapphire crystal, a sapphire display back, and it is water resistant to 50 meters. The dial is enamel Champlevé , done in-house by Donzé Cadrans.
“For the Classico Horse, Ulysse Nardin employs the intricate champlevé method where cells are carved with a chisel directly on the dial and filled with enamel. Its earth-tone palette of black, white, tan, gray and green is created from different metallic oxides, perfectly depicting the natural landscape and its small band of beautiful creatures. The piece is then fired until the enamel melts and is polished when the surface cools. The result: an exceptional creation produced by the hands of master artisans.”
At the heart of this timepiece is the Swiss automatic Ulysse-Nardin caliber UN-815 with a power reserve of 42 hours. It is COSC-certified as a chrometer. This piece is completed by a blue leather strap with a rose gold tang buckle. Limited Edition of 88 Pieces.
