Ulysse Nardin Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon Drops Jaws, Not Anchors
Swiss watch company Ulysse Nardin has a reputation for concocting some rather adventurous designs, and its new Grand Deck Marine Tourbillon is no exception. Its 44mm 18-karat white gold case houses real hand-crafted wood marquetry designed to resemble a boat’s deck, while the manual-winding caliber UN-630 movement drives a “jumping” two-digit hour counter and a sailing-inspired “boom” that indicates the minutes as it moves in a sweeping arc pulled via a network of pulleys and a length of nanowire. Considering how elaborate and intricate Ulysse Nardin made this watch, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that a) its production run will be limited to 18 copies and b) it will cost about $291,000 a pop.
