With the new Hourstriker Erotica Jarretière, Ulysse Nardin reveals a side never seen before – sensuality. Erotic scenes are a long-standing tradition in the watch industry. Ulysse Nardin takes the subject matter to new heights through its implementation of the Hourstriker movement and Jaquemarts. A limited edition of 28 pieces each in rose gold and platinum, the timepiece’s tale is evident on its dial. A delicate, handcrafted miniature painting brings the romance of Venice to life.
The scene exposes lovers, viewable from the interior balcony, enjoying each other. Set amidst traditional Venetian décor, the nude man and woman make love on a chaise; these figures are handmade gold Jaquemarts that move in rhythm with the Hourstriker.
Run by the complex Hourstriker mechanism, the watch gongs on the hour and on request as the couple moves, in the heat of passion, up and down with the sound. Simple for the timekeeper’s owner to operate, the striking mechanism can be activated or deactivated by simply pressing pusher one. One of the earliest manufacturers to lead the rebirth of the striking mechanism, Ulysse Nardin also remains among the rare watchmakers to use Jaquemarts.
