The new Classico Manara Limited Edition by Ulysse Nardin celebrates the 40th anniversary of Milo Manara’s famous masterpiece, “Click!”.
Milo Manara is an Italian artist and writer of erotic comic books. Born in northern Italy, Manara has been a graphic illustrator and scriptwriter for over 50 years.
A classically trained painter, he studied the works of Rubens, Caravaggio and De Chirico, before establishing his own style and becoming the master of realistic comic books of an erotic nature. “Click!”, one of Manara’s most famous works launched in 1983, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and its iconography has inspired Ulysse Nardin in his tribute to the artist.
Following the first Ulysse Nardin Classico Manara watch collection released in 2019 in collaboration with Milo Manara, this second series of three timepieces marks the continuation of this special relationship, revealing three reproductions of iconic and historic illustrations from the erotic comic book “Click!”.
This new 40-mm Classico Manara collection, presented in a limited edition of 40 pieces for each illustration, features an UN-320 self-winding Manufacture movement and incorporates the silicon technology, which guarantees operational efficiency and durability.
The crown of this new limited edition is adorned with red lacquer, paying tribute to the button on the famous erotic remote control illustrated in Manara’s “Click!”.
The hands are discreet, to give pride of place to the illustrations and artistic expression.
