ULYSSE NARDIN 雅典表LIMITED-EDITION HOURSTRIKER HORSE《驰骋》限量单问报时表
Tipping its hat to the enchanting animal, Ulysse Nardin makes 28 pieces featuring hand- carved horse Jaquemarts on a genuine black onyx dial: interestingly, the Hourstriker Horse plays on hour and half hours, on demand or can be set to “gong” the time in passing. Every time the hammer hits the gong, the horse Jaquemarts perform in concert. Positioned between 10 and 12 o’clock, and one and three o’clock, the horse Jaquemarts portray two stances: in one, the horse is fearful and is prepared to flee while the other is racing with purpose. Both animals, however, stuns with chiselled muscles, pronounced facial features and long and voluminous mane and tail.
Set within a 42mm round case, the watch is self-winding, can run up to 42 hours and is water resistant to 30 metres. Its cover is sapphire crystal – a material that is anti-reflective, highly durable and scratch resistant. Its case back, meanwhile, is also made of sapphire crystal for protection and visibility.
腕表拥有42毫米圆形表壳，实用且富艺术感。搭载自动上链机芯，动力储存约42小时，防水达30米，表面配上防眩蓝宝石水晶玻璃，非常耐用兼且防刮。腕表表背也使用蓝宝石水晶玻璃，保护其复杂的内部运作，同时方便观赏机芯律动。 Featuring the Graff Calibre 7 – the new and exclusive proprietary movement with a depth of just 7.72mm – The Mastergraff Perpetual Calendar impresses with an intricate openwork dial that shows off the day, date and month, which appear in a fluid horizontal line while a specially formulated resin positioned around and above the date has been treated to give it a translucent appearance. The two discs indicating the days and months are crafted using a highly complex scientific electroforming process, which creates the matter for the discs, resulting in a mesmerising skeletonised effect.
Also new to Graff is a tourbillon cage that completes one revolution in precisely 60 seconds and has three icon-inspired spokes with the inverted icon motif on one tip indicating the second hand.
Aside from signature features like a striking faceted bezel, an icon at 12 o’clock and a diamond-set crown, its 22 carat gold, offset rotor has also been skilfully integrated into the calibre and can be clearly viewed on the reverse of the watch. The Mastergraff Perpetual Calendar runs up to 42 hours and is adorned with an alligator leather strap.
