Ulysse Nardin has expanded its Skeleton X collection by adding two new models embellished with diamonds.
There are two versions of the Skeleton X Sparkling: a white titanium version with a mother-of-pearl decoration on the barrels and a white alligator strap, and a black 4N pink gold version with a black PVD brass barrel cover and a black alligator strap.
With its skeleton structure, the Skeleton X Sparkling opens itself up and reveals revealing its secrets .The boundaries between the inside and outside are erased. Shrouded in diamonds, its appearance pushes to a pinnacle of transparency of its powerful UN 371 manufacture movement. Thanks to a meticulously open structure which however conserves its resilience to impacts, the breathtaking beauty of its beating heart is striking.
Decorated with 80 diamonds on the bezel and 69 on the dial, the Skeleton X Sparkling is relatively small size of only 42mm and fully follows the current trend: Its curves give way to sharp lines for more masculinity. Its nested geometry – an X formed by four of the hour markers framed by a rectangle, itself in a circle – is an eye-catching feature. These timepieces boast a refined profile and silhouette, crafted finishes, and a hand-polished surface.
Inside and visible beats one of the FREAKVISION’s greatest innovations: an extra-wide, super-light balance wheel in silicon, with nickel flyweights and stabilizing micro-blades. The Manufacture movement, UN -371 caliber, is an entirely reworked version of the UN -171 movement. The 96-hour power reserve is displayed through the apertures on the barrel visible on the back of the watch.
