India Today - - FETISH -

When craft and tech­nol­ogy com­mune, the re­sult is usu­ally de­light­ful. Ulysse Nardin’s Ex­ec­u­tive Tour­bil­lon “Free Wheel” de­fies ex­pec­ta­tions as well as grav­ity with its spec­tac­u­lar new in­no­va­tion that lit­er­ally turns watch­mak­ing on its head. Crafted in a grand white or rose gold, with a brand-new move­ment and a star­tlingly in­no­va­tive box-domed sap­phire, the mod­ern-sized 44mm dial in dark stone is carved from a slab of slate for the 18-carat rose gold ver­sion, and built on a sleek black hon­ey­comb grid for the 18-carat white gold ver­sion. The most sur­pris­ing fea­tures are the dial’s tour­bil­lon bridges and the 7-day power re­serve in­di­ca­tor at four o’clock that are shaped like boomerangs and look like they are ac­tu­ally float­ing in air as do the other ‘skele­tonised’ com­po­nents, the hour and minute in­di­ca­tors and the gor­geous gear trains. What’s more, the strap is “car­bon leather“in matte al­li­ga­tor, which is ex­cep­tion­ally soft to the touch.
