Ulysse Nardin


1 212 397 9000


A bold and daring incarnation of Ulysse Nardin's skeleton watches, the new 45mm Blast watch is a stealth and modern take on time. Powered by the UN-172 movement, the watch boasts a new automatic flying tourbillon that resides in a cage at 6:00. The double X on the three-dimensional watch underscores the brand's commitment to X concepts (Xtreme, Xplore, X-cite) and collections (such as Freak X). The micro-rotor of the watch is also visible at 12:00. Exactly 18 months in the making for the case alone, the watch is even fitted with a state-of-the-art self-deploying buckle with patented three-blade system. The geometry - round case, inner rectangular center bridge and bold red and black X - takes the eyes by storm.

Inspired by the sea, Ulysee Nardin not only expands nautical capabilities but channels the free spirit of untamed waves into timepieces that celebrate liberation. In a world filled with questions but no answers, the brand strived to create dependable and grounding watches.From its first marine chronometer to addressing endangered shark species through creating a balance wheel inspired by the animal's respite, Ulysee Nardin persistently produces timepieces that embody our world and make exploration possible. Whether in the Diver, Freak or Blast collection, the brand's models boast the multitude of personalities and release desires through technical innovation and manufacture.Its novel watches embody Ulysee Nardin's long-lived spirit through exceptional skeletal structures, visible sun trajectories and displaying of lunar cycles. Unveiled in 2022, the Freak S in particular is extraordinary in its ditching of a crown for bezel turn-time setting, vertically built features and double-oscillating system.
