Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue tourbillon: A watch which made me dream.

Feb 16, 2023,10:38 AM

And which still makes me dream. 

Here is a jeweled version ( inner ring ). 

But the version I much prefer is the one with the blue rubies only. 

Platinum case, 41 mm big, 99 pieces ( if my memory serves me well ). 

Still very contemporary, this 20 years old watch.

Quite a beauty

Very much ahead of its time design wise, reminds me of a more elegant version of the sonata.

The hands... ;)

That's uber cool.

Definitely !

Must feel crazy on the wrist !

Without pun, a true jewel.

If you are going Blue and/or Bling, why not go all the way?

This watch really appealed to me when it came out (the non-bling version). Only 99 made and 9 of them are on Chrono24 right now. Alas, look what they did to that marvelous movement: Imagine if you gained a few pounds and had to add a link to the bracelet!...  

Too much for me.

A classic Christophe Claret ...

... who was responsible for the tourbillon, which can be easily recognized by the oversized jewel on top of the tourbillon axis. Here are a few pics from my archive: Marcus ...

Have that big jewel on the axis?

Not always.

No: Yes: ...  

Then only some of them. (nt)
