Swiss watch brand Ulysse Nardin has announced that it will introduce the Classico Kruzenshtern, a new limited edition timepiece that is part of its Classico Collection.
The 40 mm timepiece will be presented in either 18-carat white gold or 18-carat rose gold and will house a self-winding UN-815 movement with hours, minutes and seconds functions.
Certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), the watch boasts a minimum power reserve of approximately 42 hours and is water resistant up to a pressure of 5 bar (50 meters or 165 feet).
The highlight of the piece is its enamel dial that has been created using a cloisonné technique. It depicts the ship known as the Kruzenshtern. Named after Adam Johann Kruzenshtern, it now primarily operates as a training ship.
To accomplish this, it takes more than 50 hours of artisan expertise and 26 processes to complete. It is then contained within a sapphire crystal display with anti-reflective coating. This is further complemented by a seethrough caseback that allows the wearer to view the inner workings of the mechanism.
The Ulysse Nardin – Classico Kruzenshtern will be available in a limited quantity of only 30 timepieces worldwide. A choice of leather strap or a bracelet will be available.
