DELIGHTFUL DARING

Few watchmakers have the creative ability and the freedom to express it as Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin. The delightful daring of the burlesque dancer is brought charismatically to life by the craft of the artisans and watchmakers at the Swiss maison. In a limited edition of 28 rose gold and platinum timepieces, each edition features miniature painting on the dial and Jaquemarts to highlight the hourstriker function.

This charming and delicate figure gazes seductively out at the viewer, posing in her high heel sandals with a flower in her hair and her modesty barely hidden by the colorful explosion of peacock feathers. They are the result of the unique skill of the in-house miniature painters at Ulysse Nardin.

Acrylic colors are applied and mixed directly on the dial, as the tiniest details erupt to life through the use of extremely delicate brushes. Depending on their complexity, their meticulously detailed creations can take between 50 and 90 hours to complete. The finished dials are sublime works of art, highly prized by collectors and art-lovers alike.

Enveloped by the extravagance of the peacock’s tail and wing, the sensual curves of our mysterious dancer are revealed by the hourstriker function, when they sweep back to expose her beauty. This complication – one of the most intricate in mechanical timekeeping – comes alive on the hour, the half-hour and whenever the push-button is activated by the wearer.

One of the first manufacturers to lead the revival of the hourstriker mechanism, Ulysse Nardin is also one of its undisputed creative masters, and one of the few to employ Jaquemarts to set them off.

Set in a round case, the watch is as functional as it is artistic. Self-winding, it has a power reserve of approximately 42 hours and is water resistant to 30 meters. Its face cover is anti-reflective sapphire crystal, ensuring it is highly durable and scratch resistant. Its case-back, also sapphire crystal, protects its complex inner workings while al-lowing them to be seen and admired.
