Swiss luxury watch brand Ulysse Nardin honors the moon’s majesty by unveiling new Classico Luna collection for men and women. A traditionally styled timepiece, the Classico Luna draws inspiration from the moon in a different way. Similar in principle to the limited-edition Moonstruck’s indication of the moon’s phases and based on a development with Ludwig Oechslin DNA, the Classico Luna precisely depicts the moon’s rotation in a realistic representation.
The moon reflects the light of the sun as it rotates clockwise around the earth, and the Classico Luna depicts its angle of illumination as its moon rotates around the center of the timepiece – a portrayal of earth – making one rotation in 12 hours. In its speed to fulfill its moon phase circle in 29.5 days, the color of the moon phase disc will change, increasing and decreasing as the moon wanes or waxes.
A self-winding watch, the Classico Luna makes reading the moon’s phases simple. The moon phase is set over a corrector at the 5 to 6 o’clock position.
The Classico Luna for Gents is an elegant, classic and slim dress watch with a traditional dial design with a silver and black background and straight indexes. Yet, for women, the Classico Lady Luna is expressive, honoring the moon’s powerfully feminine mystique through its glamorous aesthetic, particularly when set with diamonds on the bezel. The Classico Lady Luna is available in stainless steel and gold, with or without diamonds, and with one dial version made from the beautiful and enduring mother of pearl.
