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.
