Ulysse Nardin Releases Blast Free Wheel Marquetry Watch

Luxury watch brand Ulysse Nardin is introducing the new Blast Free Wheel Marquetry watch. The Maison of Haute Horlogerie is doing it once again.

Ulysse Nardin has presented several limited editions of the Freak X since 2019. The are adorned with a multi-colored silicon marquetry disc. Yet, this is the first time this craftsmanship has been expressed in the Blast collection.

At the heart of this edgy Haute Horlogerie complication, is the original and innovative UN-176 movement. As a result, it defies not only the laws of attraction, but also the very principles of watchmaking construction.

Once again, Ulysse Nardin works with silicon. The same material they first introduced in 2001, with the now famous Freak watch collection. Utilizing blue-toned silicon, the luxury watchmaker creates a unique dial that appears to have several elements that float against the deep blue background.

Therefore, a visually dazzling bold statement showcases the Blast Free Wheel Marquetry’s mechanism dancing over blue-toned silicon. Hence, the creative design gives pride to its flying tourbillon. It seems the watch elements levitate with no visible attachment to the dial.

The talented research and development of Ulysse Nardin’s technical department perfected the flying calibre. In addition, the flying tourbillon of the Blast Free Wheel Marquetry is seen at the 6 o’clock position. Interestingly, it consists of 45 components and boasts a revolutionary constant escapement, including the brand’s revolutionary Anchor Constant Escapement.

The company’s Constant Escapement features a circular frame with a pallet fork fixed in the center. Thus, it supports in space on two blade springs less than a quarter of the thickness of a hair in diameter.

Decorate a single dial by assembling the small silicon plates took countless hours of work for the Ulysse Nardin artisans. Their dedication and attention to detail are critical. As a result, they were careful to not break or mark the extremely fragile jewels of the Blast Free Wheel Marquetry watch.

Lastly, the new luxury watch face features a seven-day power reserve display.

The Life of Luxury has access to almost every luxury watch brand in the world, both new and pre-owned. Let us help you in finding you that perfect, luxury watch.

New Limited Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” Timepiece by Arnold & Son

Arnold & Son celebrates the year of the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Water Rabbit with a new artistic version of the brand’s Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece. The luxury watch brand continues its annual celebration of the traditional Chinese calendar. This time with this limited new series of eight high-precision moon-phase wristwatches. The Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece features a sculpted golden rabbit set against a backdrop of black aventurine. It poses next to a pagoda and is surrounded by waterfalls.

The Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece is symbolic, powerful, sophisticated, and full of meaning. Arnold & Son has sculpted the animal in a calm yet watchful pose. For example, it sits majestically against a backdrop of black aventurine, beneath a great mother-of-pearl moon. In Chinese Zodiac iconography, the water rabbit is the moon’s loyal companion. In addition to its fine watchmaking movement, the timepiece also displays masterful aesthetics.

The year of the Water Rabbit begins on Saturday, January 21, 2023. Based on the founding legends of the Chinese Zodiac, the rabbit inhabits a white jade moon, and serves as its pet. The rabbit embodies prudence and agility. As a result, when shown alongside the characteristic element of the year of the Water Rabbit, this animal promises longevity, peace, and prosperity.

Celestial light

Arnold & Son accommodates a large moon on the watch dial. In a large aperture, a turning disc reveals the waxing and waning of the night’s celestial body. Plus, one will see the appearance of the crescent moon and its light. The moon is crafted from mother-of-pearl with painted elements in relief. All are enhanced with Super-LumiNova.

Pale during the day, it transforms at night. This, it shines brightly and is adorned with scintillating details. The luxury watch’s dial contains aquatic elements. As a result, it adds further dimension to the scene. In the background, the disc bearing the star is made from deep black aventurine glass.

Artistic expression

The rabbit remains the dial’s key element. Sculpted in three dimensions, it is crafted from 18-karat rose gold. This time consuming work is worthy of the exceptional attention Arnold & Son has always paid to its limited series created in tribute to the Chinese Zodiac.

The same holds true for the watch dial. On a disc of black aventurine glass, the foliage and pagoda decorations are hand-painted with gold powder. Continuing, the Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece model is mounted on a glistening black alligator leather strap. Notice the visible platinum stitching and a lining of auspicious red alligator leather.

Expert watchmaking

Thanks to the watch manufacture’s research and development efforts, the moon phase display of this movement is extremely precise. For example, it will remain accurate for 122 years before deviating from the actual lunar cycle by one day. Hence, the Perpetual Moon “Year of the Rabbit” timepiece will work in perfect harmony with the astronomic, astrological, and collection cycles. This unique sense of eternity is characteristic of all Arnold & Son creations.

The Life of Luxury has access to all top luxury watch brands from around the world. Let us help you locate and purchase that ideal luxury watch. Contact us today.

DC Inspired x Wonder Woman Tourbillon Watch by Kross Studio

The new Kross Studio x Wonder Woman tourbillon watch was created in collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products and DC. DC’s Wonder Woman is a cinimatic icon. Her unique depth of character has inspired fans all around the world. As a fitting tribute to Wonder Woman’s global impact, Kross Studio has designed a complex and powerful watch. Hence, it underlines her icon status as an invincible fighter and seeker of justice.

The custom-commissioned, one-of-a-kind Kross Studio x Wonder Woman timepiece stands as a testament to Kross Studio’s daring creativity and manufacturing prowess. The Swiss luxury watch team has agile skill and creates custom designs for the most discerning collectors and enthusiasts.

Wonder Woman Movie Collection

Attractive actor Gal Gadot plays the role of Diana Prince in the Wonder Woman movie series. The first movie titled “Wonder Woman” hit theaters in May of 2017. Featuring an Amazon princess who confronts the forces of evil and bring an end to human conflict, during World War One. The second movie – 1984 came out in December of 2020. First, a botched store robbery puts Wonder Woman in a global battle against a powerful and mysterious ancient force. But that battle puts her special powers in jeopardy.

A Unique and Exceptional Superhero Watch

To produce this exceptional watch piece that embodies the superheroine, Kross Studio developed an ultra-complex new casing process. It unites the watch’s dial and movement. For example, Kross Studio engineers turned to the brand’s own central tourbillon manufacture movement to begin. Yes, the integration of the dial required a new design, inspiring a new version of the caliber KS’7000. As a result, the dial and the movement follow the curve of the sapphire crystal across its entire diameter.

Moreover, the Studio did not top the central tourbillon cage with a decorative element. Rather, it integrates Wonder Woman’s iconic emblem as an integral part of the dial. It is found above the tourbillon cage. For its part, the tourbillon cage benefits from a new design with an upper cage bridge symbolizing the Kross Studio cross.

One-of-a-kind Time Reading

Fittingly, the Kross Studio x Wonder Woman watch also presents a unique method of reading the hours and minutes. The hour hand, represents Wonder Woman’s sword. It attaches to the peripheral display mechanism in 360° orbit around the tourbillon. The superheroine’s tiara points to her shield. In turn, it reveals the disc displaying the minutes over a range of 15 minutes at 12 o’clock. Finally, the hour markers on the flange are in the shape of stars, a potent symbol of Wonder Woman.

A Stunning and Vibrant, Luxury Timepiece

The circular satin-brushed grade 5 titanium case has a design with depth and brilliance. For example, the flange and the minute disc are treated in blue pvd to the sandblasted and polished central applique in 3N gold color. The final touches go even further. Using 5-axis CNC machining techniques and hand-crafted finishes have enabled Kross Studio technicians and designers to render elements of the Wonder Woman central tourbillon watch in three dimensions.

The Kross Studio x Wonder Woman watch comes with three straps. They are easily interchangeable thanks to the ingenious quick-change strap system. One is crafted of blue calf leather strap and the second is red alligator. Lastly, the third strap comes in anthracite grey goat leather.

New Classics Carree Automatic Watches from Frederique Constant

Luxury watch brand Frederique Constant introduces three new variations of the Classics Carree Automatic watch collection.  Going back to its original era and the roaring twenties, the new watches emerge with a stylistic audacity.  Yes, the resulting imprint is still perceptible.

The new Classics Carree Automatic luxury watch collection is very refined.  The stunning rose gold-plated or steel timepieces rely on a minimalist style. They include baton indexes, dauphine hands and date. In addition, a dial with a subtle guilloché pattern gives the Classics Carrée Automatic a rare elegance for aesthete collectors.

Classics Carree Automatic

The new Classics Carree Automatic watches from Frederique Constant are available in three versions. Each is powered by the FC-303 caliber offering 38 hours of power reserve. The caliber is clearly visible through the sapphire caseback. Continuing, the most sober and classic come with a steel case, silver dial and black leather strap. The most modern comes in the same case with a blue dial on a matching bracelet in the same tone. It’s topstitched in blue. The most chic and precious prefers a pink gold-plated case with shared indexes and hands, on a brown strap.

First launched in 2003, the Classics Carree Automatic is evolving again and significantly. First, a major change is the Heart Beat opening closes. Plus, the housing is the well-kept secret of the Swiss Made mechanism of the timepiece. Hence, this is how the face of a new, much more streamlined dial emerges. For example, the large Roman numerals give way to applied indexes, doubled at noon. The style is timeless and much closer to the aesthetic canons of the 20s.

The date window at 6 o’clock reproduces the rectangular line of the case. Therefore, it is dressed in a frame of the same finish as the latter, also shared by the indexes.

Luxury watch brand Frederique Constant introduces three new variations of the Classics Carrée Automatic watch collection.

You will find in the center of the dial, the most refined finishes. First, a rectangle with the exact proportions of the 30.4 x 33.3 mm case. It’s closed by a “railway” type timer, typical of the 1920s and the Art Deco movement that ran through them. Next, a very fine grooving dresses it. As a result, it offers a sole gaze of its owner.

This subtlety makes it possible to offer a better contrast to the set of three hands. Of course, the hours and minutes are shaped in the Dauphine style. Thus, a geometry is also characteristic of the past century. This simple, refined shape allows the time to be read perfectly in all circumstances. This is due to two facets. Each is oriented at two divergent angles. Therefore, at least one of the two always captures the light. Brillant design!

Arnold & Son Reveals the Luna Magna Ultimate II Luxury Watch

Luxury watch brand Arnold & Son introduces the Luna Magna Ultimate II luxury watch. This stunning, high jewelry moonphase timepiece features Lagoon-blue Paraiba Tourmaline and a diamond moon. The blue-green glow of the Paraíba tourmaline is the cornerstone of an exceptional new creation by Arnold & Son. The new watch was introduced to the world at last month’s Geneva Watch Days event.

Arnold & Son is named after John Arnold, an English watchmaker of the 18th century. Hence, the legendary watchmaker company was recognized for his ingenuity and work on marine chronometers. Arnold & Son continues his legacy by exploring contemporary ways to interpret traditional watch craftsmanship. All its watches are designed and manufactured in La Chaux-de-Fonds, located in the cradle of the Swiss watchmaking industry

Luna Magna Ultimate II

With this launch, Arnold & Son releases a new high-jewelry version of its beloved three-dimensional moon model. Above and beyond the technical prowess of including a 12 mm lunar sphere into a watch, the piece features superlative gem-setting. From pavé to invisible and channel setting, Arnold & Son draws on watchmaking savoir-faire of the highest level. Thus, the end result is the limited production of eight Luna Magna Ultimate II timepieces.

The Luna Magna Ultimate II is adorned with PVD-treated ruthenium crystals. The dial adopts the same shade as the Paraíba and is encircled by baguette-cut diamonds. As one of the rarest and most precious gemstones, the pavé-sets on the three-dimensional astronomical moon.

The 44 mm diameter case is crafted from 18K white gold and is studded with no fewer than 7.62 ct of exceptional-quality diamonds. Also, is the extraordinary color of the Paraíba tourmaline. It is a rare and much sought-after stone. Therefore, the finishing touch on this exotic and refined piece is the blue-green tones bordering on turquoise.

Arnold & Son introduces the Luna Magna Ultimate II Luxury Watch

A Precious Lagoon

A fine ring surrounds the new Luna Magna Ultimate II watch. It is formed of 112 baguette-cut diamonds totaling 5.90 ct. They overhang the flat surface of the bezel, appearing as if simply placed upon it, floating over its edge. Thus, it allows light to pass through them like an open prism. This is known as an “invisible” setting, generating unique sparkle. Continuing, its glittering appearance is due to millions of pure ruthenium crystals.

The extremely hard metal is found in platinum mines. This is due to being present in the same ore. However, ruthenium is much rarer than platinum. Hence, for the Luna Magna Ultimate II, the ruthenium is reformed into crystals and dyed using complex processes. As a result, it is regularly found on Arnold & Son’s timepieces and is unique in the watchmaking world.

A Tourmaline Night

A traditional dial is located at 12 o’clock. It is marked with 12 signature Arnold & Son Roman numerals. For example, this off-center sub-dial owes its pristine, slight milky white hue to opal. Underneath the time display, Luna Magna’s three-dimensional moon takes on a new appearance. Therefore, the white gold globe is entirely pavé-set. It is split into 161 brilliant-cut diamonds. This represents the illuminated side of the moon. Lastly, it’s the same number of Paraíba tourmalines for the portion in shadow.

The Life of Luxury has access to all the major luxury watch brands from around the world.  We offer the best new and pre-owned luxury watches. Please contact us to assist with your next luxury timepiece purchase.

Angelus Introduces New Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon Watch

Looking for a sports watch with a flying tourbillon? Angelus Introduces a new Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon watch.

This limited edition of 18 pieces is housed within a sharp new 42.5 mm diameter case in carbon composite and red gold. The Angelus sports watch with a flying tourbillon features a A-250 caliber. Thus, it gives the luxury watch a three-dimensional skeletonized look. In addition, the array of bridges in relief, offer a graphic arrangement. As a result, it is much like the horological performance of this Angelus tourbillon.

Angelus was found in 1891 in Switzerland. The luxury watch brand is widely recognized by watchmaking connoisseurs as one of the most influential horological manufactures of the 20th century. The watch company’s pioneering, house-made movements and vintage timepieces are desired by fine watch collectors around the world.

Stylish Case

Leading a new generation of Angelus cases is e Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon. It is sleek with dynamic lines. Therefore, befitting of the extreme technicality of this supremely graphic timepiece. The red gold crown has wide notches and protected by an asymmetrical guard projecting from the lugs.


Meanwhile, the A-250 skeletonized flying tourbillon caliber is surrounded by an ultra-rigid and ultralight carbon composite container. It is held within an 18K 5N red gold case middle. Alos, it reveals another kind of skeletonization. The Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon comes with a black ballistic-style rubber strap. It features an interchangeable system and red gold and titanium folding clasp.


The Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon has no dial. Although it does have a flange. Thus, it marks the transition between bezel and watch interior. It then graduates with sets of five increments. For example, each is separated by three-dimensional white gold hour-markers. Thes are filled with a luminescent substance. Because the flange is level with the bezel, it creates a sunken effect. As a result, it accentuates the feeling of depth in the A-250 calibre.


The bridges of the Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon form its face. Without a dial, these components play an expressive role in any skeleton movement. The main plate of the A-250 calibre is black and made from woven carbon composite. So it nicely accentuates the contrasting 18K red gold bridges.

Stunning Display

The workings are housed within a vast sapphire crystal glass box. The transparent component is angled. It’s almost vertically where it touches the bezel. Therefore, it provides a large, flat surface for the Gold & Carbon Flying Tourbillon watch’s spectacular display.
