HIGH SEAS

Men's Folio (Singapore) - - Time - Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Ma­rine Tour­bil­lon

Ulysse Nardin is one of the few brands still mak­ing waves de­spite the in­dus­try’s choppy wa­ters, of­fer­ing a trea­sure cruise of horo­log­i­cal de­lights aboard its Grand Deck Ma­rine Tour­bil­lon. The nau­ti­cal- in­spired watch minia­turises el­e­ments from a clas­sic yacht­ing deck, in­clud­ing wooden deck boards, winches, lines, and a main­sail boom. To tell time, the boom is lit­er­ally pulled across a translu­cent ret­ro­grade min­utes scale by su­per-strong nanowires (work­ing like rig­ging that hoist the sails), while jump­ing hours are dis­played on two con­cen­tric discs with a pusher above the crown for quick hourly ad­just­ments. In ad­di­tion to the patented time mech­a­nism, the man­ual-wind­ing Cal­i­bre UN- 630 also in­cor­po­rates a 60- minute fly­ing tour­bil­lon and two bar­rels, one for the move­ment and an­other for the dis­play.
