A classic beauty, the Dual Time Manufacture Lady by Ulysse Nardin shows a fresh face and new movement. Both ladylike and practical, this lovely timepiece communicates a style of elegance and playfulness powered for the first time by the in-house conceived and manufactured Caliber 334.
Offered in a winter white palette that shimmers with the iridescence found only in mother of pearl – the outer coating of a pearl – and a rich, shiny black, the watch is available in these two dial colors and two styles, as well. Both are decorated in gold or stainless steel and diamonds galore with elegant and colorful wristbands to match. For the woman who prefers a wealth of sparkle, she can select the timekeeper adorned with diamonds encircling the entire bezel. The model with the sleek, unembellished bezel is ideal for the woman who finds less to be more.
Each alluring version features a face that exudes a timeless radiance, dressed up by a very whimsical Roman numeral XII encompassing 12 diamonds; diamond hour markers; small seconds at 6 o’clock comprised of 12 diamonds; and even more diamonds decorating the crown. The hour and second hands, and iconic Ulysse Nardin anchor, are crafted in gold, adding to the wristwatch’s lasting allure.
Devised with frequent travelers in mind, the dual time manufacture – a significant milestone in the history of contemporary watchmaking – allows wearers to adjust the second time zone and date forward, as well as backward. The movement, implemented here for the first time in the latest version of the Dual Time Lady, is an extension of this great feat.
Easy to read and adjust, the “home time” indicator advances steadily over 24 hours in an aperture at 9 o’clock, while the small hand can easily be aligned with local time, either forward or backward. This is achieved by pressing the (+) or (-) pushers at 10 o’clock and 8 o’clock, without having to remove the watch from the wrist or interrupt its timekeeping. The large date display synchronizes with the hour hand adjusters, for the date moves automatically forward or backward when adjustments are made over midnight.
An exquisite timepiece for the woman on the move, the Dual Time Lady bares not only the soft side of Ulysse Nardin but it also represents the manufacture’s commitment to enhancing its Ladies Collection. With the implementation of such movement, the Dual Time Lady is both a state-of-the-art timepiece and a dazzling piece of jewelry.
