Ulysse Nardin Marine Mega Yacht is inspired by all things aquatic. An extension of the Marine Grand Deck Tourbillon watch launched by Ulysse Nardin in 2016, this new model follows the tradition of the Marine collection that has been a constant feature of the Ulysse Nardin Manufacture ever since its foundation in 1846. Based on the concept of the mega yacht, this timepiece boasts of a 44 mm platinum 3D “grand feu” enamel dial, which reminds the owner of a ship’s bow plowing its way through the ocean waves. A precise representation of the Moon with an ultra-detailed surface sits across from sophisticated tide indicator.The watch also equipped with a moonphase in the form of a 3-D blue-and-silver-glazed globe. The blue PVD finish signifies the period of the new moon, whereas the rhodiumised silver symbolises the illuminating effect of the sun.
To guarantee perfect timing, this construction is regulated by a flying tourbillon. To ensure the watch is firmly anchored in the nautical world, the cage of the flying tourbillon is decorated with a propeller, its blades specially honed to guarantee the highest level of performance for latest-generation yachts. To craft this watch’s manually wound Manufacture mechanical caliber (regulated by a tourbillon), Ulysse Nardin has used its very best watchmakers, who have worked alongside those from the Christophe Claret manufacture, a brand universally recognized for designing innovative watch complications in its workshops. The Innovative and completely visible through its transparent case-back, the movement is designed to resemble the engines found in a vessel’s engine room.
An anchor attached to the windlass at 12 o’clock raises and falls, through the action of a set of wheels in contact with the winding mechanism, to indicate the power reserve. UN-631 calibre is made up of 504 components and beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of 80 hours and water resistance to 50 meters. All 30 Limited Edition watches are completed by a fully integrated strap made of navy blue alligator leather.
