I turn now to the two new models:

Classico Factory “Bonfire.”

The “Great fire” of Ulysse Nardin Manufacture Classico watch is a model to success of the Swiss manufacturer. There are different versions, and each of them seduced by its classic attributes – we have already noticed last June. The case and an elegant shape and is not overly big with its diameter of 40 mm without losing its presence to the wrist. The stems of the horns in addition to design a trace of originality.

The housing of the Classico Manufacture ‘Great fire’ is stainless steel which highlights a discreet design and makes the friendly quality-price ratio.
This Classico factory is operated by caliber House a-320, an automatic movement with a Silicon balance and exhaust. The movement provides the energy for the hours, minutes, small seconds and date. the power reserve is 48 hours.

The blue enamel dial apart this Classico factory “Great fire” of the other models in the series. Like all the dials of this material, it is also produced by Donzé dials, a subsidiary of Ulysse Nardin, who specializes in the treatment of enamel. The enamel is applied on a dial Guilloche with a pattern of waves – the result is really hypnotic.
A leather strap complete this watch to perfection.

Hourstriker Pinup

Unlike Classico factory ‘Great fire’, the Hourstriker pinup watch is a limited edition model of which only 28 respective models in red gold and Platinum are produced. This makes this watch a real collector’s item.

The dial of the watch Hourstriker pinup has thumbnails and Jacquemarts who set the scene perfectly the Hourstriker percussion mechanism – and eat up between 50 and 90 hours of work. When the mechanism is triggered, the tail of the Peacock and the wings to sidestep and discover the dancer. This complication is triggered every half hour – and at the time where the wearer pushes the button at 4 o’clock. However, the service may be suspended by pushing the button at 2 o’clock.

The Hourstriker pinup watch is powered by automatic movement which has a power reserve of 42 hours. It is inside a box of 43 mm in diameter and has a water resistance up to 30 meters. The case design is the traditional features of Ulysse Nardin and is on sale in red gold or Platinum.
