Ulysse Nardin celebrates the upcoming Chinese New Year (Beginning in February 2018) with the “Year of the Dog” timepiece, the latest addition to its popular Classico Collection. The timepiece incorporates the century old artistic traditions like Grand Feu enamelling and Champlevé techniques.
This ancient art of enameling is incredibly rare, and only a handful of craftspeople in the world have mastered this decorative technique to the degree displayed in this timepiece. For almost 30 years, Ulysse Nardin has been bringing this enamel artistry to its dials, and is in fact one of the only watchmakers devoted to the centuries-old craft. It is practiced in-house at Donzé Cadrans, a member of the Ulysse Nardin group of companies.
The Classico Collection numbers a series of original enameled pieces, beloved and collected by many. This Chinese New Year, beginning in February 2018, Ulysse Nardin presents the “Year of the Dog”. A limited edition of 88 pieces in 18-karat rose gold, the “Year of the Dog” timepiece is powered by the self-winding UN-815 movement. It boasts a 42-hour power reserve along with a COSC certification. Set in a 40-mm case, the unique Grand Feu Champlevé enamel timepiece is water-resistant to 50 m and held in place with an alligator strap.
