Ulysse Nardin Jade timepiece is one of 72 watches that will compete to win the prestigious “Aiguille d’Or” Grand Prix 2015 and one of six timepieces to win “Ladies” category. Jade is the signature timepiece in the Ulysse Nardin collection for ladies and marks a first in Ulysse Nardin history.
Never before has Ulysse Nardin designed and produced an in-house movement exclusively for a ladies collection, demonstrating the manufacturer’s commitment to its female clientele. Unique in its concept, it is designed and built in such a way that it does not call for pushing or pulling of the crown to set the date and time. Drawing on the inventive spirit of Ulysse Nardin, silicium technology is used in the development of the base caliber, escapement wheels and Swiss anchor. A technologically advanced material, silicium was first brought to the forefront of haute horology by Ulysse Nardin with the unveiling of the revolutionary Freak. Unlike conventional materials, Silicium is not affected by close proximity to magnetism which is widespread these days such as when the watch is placed close to mobile phones, making it a modern-day necessity. This collection forges the Ulysse Nardin guideline and confirms the brand affinity for delicate and sensual creations.
