Classic Lady Dual Time
September 12, 2017
Women on the move, take note. For the first time ever, the nail-friendly function of Ulysse Nardin’s women’s timepieces is integrated in the iconic Dual Time Lady collection.
In watchmaking circles, the Ulysse Nardin Dual Time is renowned, and deservedly so: it’s a mechanical complication that is incredibly challenging for engineers to achieve, and yet simplifies the lives of all who wear it. It involves a double time zone feature which is both intuitive and easy to use: pushers on the left instantly adjust the hour to a different time zone - forward or backward - while the home time indicator at 9 o'clock continues its cycle.
A slender 37.5 mm diameter case in stainless steel holds the secret to this timepiece’s functionality - the UN-324, a self-winding an automatic movement entirely designed and manufactured in-house by Ulysse Nardin. Making full use of the Silicium technology which the Swiss watchmaker pioneered - known to vastly improve the precision and durability of watch components – the UN-324 caliber is the beating heart of this stunning instrument.
The crown selector function represents another leap forward in timekeeping innovation, a constant ideal at Ulysse Nardin. Its nail-friendly function was designed to allow the date and time to be set with a pusher and three positions on the dial, therefore avoiding the traditional pulling out of the crown and preserving a woman’s manicure.
The bezel is set with glamourous diamonds, which highlight a midnight blue or a chic grey dial and bracelet. As well as the diamonds encrusted on the bezel, diamonds are used too in place of hour indexes, as well as in a delicate tracery across the center. The time zone feature is joined on the dial by the legible date display in a double window at 2 o’clock, and a small seconds register at 6 o’clock.
For women with international lives, the elegance and practicality of the Classic Lady Dual Time makes it truly the ideal traveling companion.
