The Imperial St. Petersburg is the latest timepiece to join the Ulysse Nardin Marine Collection. Released as a limited edition of just 30 platinum pieces, the watch alone is only half of what makes this release so special. The watch will be housed in a unique multi-layer white translucent enamel Egg of the Tsars that has been adorned with 4.25 carats of diamonds. The eggs exterior uses these diamonds to recreate well known symbols of St. Petersburg, such as the Arch of the General Staff Building, the Rostral Columns, and the Admiralty Spires. The egg has been placed on a white marble base, linked by a gold Ulysse Nardin’s anchor.

The watch itself has a hand-crafted oven-cured enamel dial which is crowned with an applied gold double-headed Eagle which is the emblem of St. Petersburg. The movement used is the C.O.S.C chronometer certified UN-26 which has a 22 Karat gold rotor which is viewable through the watch's transparent case back. The Imperial St. Petersburg has hour and minute displays as well as a small seconds counter and a large date displayed at 6 o’clock. The movement allows for a 42 hour power reserve. The case is 43mm in diameter and has a screw down crown and a sapphire crystal. The watch water resistant to 100 meters.
