Ulysse Nardin has introduced an elegant new collection into the brands collective. The Classico watch collection, for the time being, is only being produced in 18 carat gold. Reminiscent of other Ulysee Nardin creations, including the discontinued Ulysse I model, the Classico has a "classic" look with beautiful scarab-style lugs. The mens' version of the Classico watch measures 40 mm in diameter while the ladies measures a nice 35 mm in diameter, not a bad size and certainly not a delicate watch by most standards.

The mens version will be available in both 18 carat rose and white gold, each with a highly polished finish. The dials will come in either black or a silvered dial and the white gold version will have a Ulysse Nardin specialty, a beautiful blue enamel dial, created using the "grand feu" technique. The ladies version is available in 18 carat white gold with the bezel and lugs both set with round brilliant diamonds. Each piece has a White gold winding crown which is accented by a row of blue sapphire cabochons. The kiln-fired enamel dial is set with diamonds as well. Each dial will be a unique creations produced by master artisan, each depicting images of delicate birds. Each watch is nicely complimented by a hand-sewn alligator leather strap.

Each of the Classico watches feature a self-winding mechanical movements. The ladies' version displays hours and minutes, while the mens' version has a sweep seconds function and a rapidly correctable date display. Each timepiece is protected by a fitted curved sapphire crystals and the fine decorative finishing and 22 carat gold centrally-mounted winding rotors are visible through the sapphire crystal casebacks. The watches are completed with leather straps with 8-karat gold folding clasps.
