Just ahead of the Geneva Watch Days event, Ulysse Nardin released their latest technological marvel, BLAST. New features, a bold design and technical prowess make this timepiece well-suited for explorers that want a unique edge.
“X” marks the spot
The X has become a central theme in recent Ulysse Nardin history. You’ll find it encased within a rectangle and a circle and prominently displayed on all four BLAST models. The shape-within-shape-within-shape design is as unorthodox as it is interesting. Flip the watch over and you’ll see the X again – an X-factor you literally can’t miss.
Beneath the surface
This timepiece is powered by the in-house UN-172 movement, which beats at a frequency of 2.5Hz. Wearers will appreciate a three-day power reserve, an automatic tourbillon and a micro-rotor visible at 12 o’clock. The tourbillon cage has also been restructured to offer wearers a better glimpse into the innerworkings of the watch.
It’s all in the details
The BLAST features aerodynamic horns made to mimic the wings of a stealth aircraft. Each triangle has a different finish—alternating between polished, satin-finish and sand-blaster veneer—that give the watch a smooth and masculine look.
And for the finishing touch, the timepiece boasts an all new self-deploying buckle, featuring a patented three blade system that opens in a simultaneous fashion.
