Luxury Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin has revealed the Jade “Grand Feu” and “Cloisonné” editions which feature handcrafted enamel dials.
The decorative art of Grand Feu is seen on just a handful of timepieces around the world thanks to its complex and difficult to achieve techniques, according to the brand.
The timepiece features rich turquoise enamel and a swirl of diamonds across the face and on the stainless steel bezel. Other Grand Feu editions have been created in red ruby and mysterious grey.
Ulysse Nardin’s “Cloisonné” timepieces, the Jade Lionfish in rose gold and Jade Jellyfish in white gold feature two marine-inspired designs.
The Jade model, which was first introduced in 2013, represented the first movement (UN-310 caliber) to be designed and produced in-house by Ulysse Nardin specifically for a woman’s watch.
It was also the first timepiece to consider a woman’s manicure when manipulating the settings. Its crown design requires a simple turn as opposed to a pull in order to wind the watch, set the time or adjust the date back-wards or forwards.
All the models boast anti-reflective sapphire crystal and case back and a water resistance to 30 meters.
