Now Ulysse Nardin is adding a translucent blue grand feu enamel dial to the range, which is made by applying blue enamel powder over a guilloché dial, and firing it in a kiln at very high temperatures – somewhere around 800° C – although the flames cannot be controlled to give an exact temperature each time. The indications, painted in the previous model, are now applied. Otherwise, the features of the watch are unchanged. These include classic Roman numerals, feuille-shaped hands and a small seconds counter at six o’clock with a small round aperture for the date window.
The watch is presented in the same frame too, a slender 9.6mm stainless steel case measuring a relatively modest 40mm in diameter. Water resistance is 30 meters, though this is clearly not a watch designed for active wear.
Pricing has not yet been released, but we will update this story as soon as we learn more.
