IN­NO­VI­SION 2

Esquire Malaysia Watch Guide - - Brand Story -

Although this is just a con­cept, the In­no­vi­sion 2 is just too stun­ning of a watch to not men­tion it in this SIHH roundup. It would take too many words to de­scribe all the new in­no­va­tions so here are the most no­table ones. Start­ing at the heart, Ulysse Nardin un­veils a brand­new dual con­stant es­cape­ment that is ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing equal pulses to the bal­ance wheel and the hair­spring sim­ply be­cause it is not de­pen­dent on the ten­sion of the main­spring. This is achieved through a com­plex sili­cium struc­ture with lock­ing el­e­ments, which in­ter­acts with sili­cium es­cape­ments. Then there is the com­pletely new “Grinder” au­to­matic wind­ing sys­tem that im­proves ef­fi­ciency by leaps and bounds.

In­cor­po­rat­ing new and never-be­fore-used ma­te­ri­als for its watch com­po­nents, the In­no­vi­sion 2 has 24K hard gold wheels (tra­di­tion­ally cast in brass) that will open up the pos­si­bil­ity of cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful and pre­cious move­ments for high-end time­pieces. The bridge is made from glass, which of­fers bril­liant trans­parency, and yet has a shock pro­tec­tion sys­tem that keeps the most im­por­tant parts of the watch safe. Ad­ding to the the­atrics, the glass bridge can also be filled with Su­perLu­minova, giv­ing it a futuristic edge. Top it all off with a new way of telling time and you have a com­bi­na­tion of in­no­va­tions that are sure to fuel Ulysse Nardin’s of­fer­ings far into the fu­ture.
