Ulysse Nardin is a daring brand it is a fact. This year they are upping the ante with their latest creation, the BLAST . Supercharged with classic Ulysse Nardin savoir faire, the BLAST is an avatar of its time, a potent force of nature.
Housed in a 45mm case this mechanical machine, inspired by stealth aircrafts, is home to a powerful automatic silicium tourbillon nested in a bold, totally redesigned, X-shaped cage, which beats inside at a frequency of 2.5 Hz.
BLAST is available in four distinct models, each with the new manufacture UN-172 movement with an automatic tourbillon and the new self-deploying buckle. Three bracelets options are possible: structured rubber, leather, velvet and some other specific option.
The BLAST is an amazing timepiece that does not feel like a 45mm watch. It is light, comfortable and easily wearable with any outfit thanks to its thickness of 11mm. The BLAST could easily be a limited edition but Ulysse Nardin opted for another model, it will be a normal edition with a limited annual production.
On top of these four incredible models the brand is also presenting a very special edition, the Sparkling BLAST.
With 85 distinct and unique cuts of diamonds, this masterpiece is composed of a stunning 211 diamonds for a total weight of 13 carats. The symbolic “X” – trademark of Ulysse Nardin – is also set with sparkling diamonds, embedded directly into the watch face, sealing the seamless look of timeless elegance and luxury. The Sparkling BLAST is a limited edition of 3.
