Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillon. Another dream piece.

Jun 08, 2019,11:26 AM
 

41 mm platinum case. Christophe Claret was involved in the creation of the movement. And a superb creation playing with transparency, light, colors. 





Not a fan of Tourbillons, but here, this is a very notable exception. A dream watch, for me. 

Best,

Nicolas

They are either incredibly cool or completely hideous. For the life of me, I can’t determine which one of those they are. NickO

My vote, fwiw, is . . .

. . . incredibly cool! M4

Normally, I’m not this indecisive....

So I’ll get there on the hands. But either way, I really like the watch. It reminds me a little bit of the one I have incoming: Think Platinum + Blue Dial + Tourbillon. NickO

I’ll give you a clue: it’s made by my favorite independent brand

Guess that and you should get the watch as I’m 99% certain it’s the only blue-dialed platinum tourbillon they’ve ever made. NickO

De Bethune? [nt]

Yes!!!!

And the watch? Another clue: as fate would have it, you used the name of the watch in your title to this post (and it’s not tourbillon). NickO

Royal? [nt]

Nope. [nt]

Blue, then? ;) [nt]

Ha, ha, ha, I already said not tourbillon 😀

 
 By: NickO : June 8th, 2019-15:16
C’mon Nico, this one shouldn’t stump you so badly 😀

LOL!! Has the mustache won? It’s not Ulysse.

 
 By: NickO : June 8th, 2019-15:24
Let me know if you want to give up... or keep on going 😀

It’s definitely another Dream Piece!!

Going back about a decade, the world’s lightest tourbillon carriage at 0.18 grams and the world’s only fast-beat tourbillon at 36,000 vph. Same movement used today in the De Bethune DB28T. Stock photo of the De Bethune Dream Watch 3. I look forward to sha...  

Deal. [nt]

I had not heard CC was involved with the movement design

An added specialty for this uber-special watch!

I have always found this watch to offer a unique charm.

I can't think of another that has the same vibe... I really love this watch.
