Ulysse Nardin Classic Voyeur

At SIHH 2018, Ulysse Nardin unveiled its most erotic creation ever – the Classic Voyeur – a Jaquemart minute repeater that literally makes love to time.

An acknowledged pioneer of Haute Horlogerie innovation since 1846, Ulysse Nardin has long been the unrivaled master of repeater technology — complications that chime the hours and, in the case of minute repeaters like the Classic Voyeur, the quarter hours and minutes, at the press of a button. The Manufacture is also renowned for its Jaquemart repeaters, which traditionally feature an automated figure striking the hours and minutes on a clock tower bell.

The enticingly erotic Jaquemarts on the Classic Voyeur’s anthracite grey dial are of a different order all together: two beautifully proportioned couples fashioned from 18-carat pink gold or white gold and caught “in flagrante delicto.”

The pleasant chimes are seductively low-pitched for the hours and higher-pitched for the minutes. The 42 mm case is in 18-carat pink gold or platinum. Only 18 pieces are in the edition. A diamond set platinum version is also available with 60 shimmering baguette diamonds on bezel, for a total of 3.5 cts.
