Ulysse Nardin Moonstruck Watch

in Ulysse Nardin | Sunday, September 20. 2009

Check out this watch, here's something a bit different than your average Uylsse Nardin watch. This astrology-themed timepiece, the Ulysse Nardin Moonstruck, is an interesting addition to the brands collection for 2009. This limited edition timpiece will be produced to only 500 pieces in both red gold and platinum. The Moonstruck display echoes the rotation of the Moon around the Earth, as well as the Sun’s relative position which is displayed by the two beautiful moon and sun shaped discs that are traveling around the large map of the Earth in the center of the dial. Ulysse Nardin has announced that the moon phase will reach 100,000 years before the display deviates from the proper phase. With a large case that measures dimensions of 46mm wide by 16.3mm thick, it is possible to incorporate the complex self-winding mechanical movement.

The Moonstruck watch is powered by the caliber UN-106 movement, which is an in-house movement in its entirety - conceived, developed and manufactured all at Ulysee Nardin. The movement allows for approximately a 50 hour power reserve. The watch displays Hours and minutes and has an instant time-zone adjuster with a patented quick setting device. The picture of the earth has been hand painted on a mother of pearl dial which is then protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The superb case construction and its screw down security crown allows for a water-resistance of up to 100 meters. The Ulysse Nardin Moonstruck Watch is completed by an alligator leather strap with a folding buckle.
