Athens Presents Unique Perpetual Calendar Watch Debut

The ultimate symbol of watchmaking craftsmanship, the new watch is equipped with its own movement UN-32, which can adjust the date back and forth, showing eternal immortal taste time is the road to the eternal traveler. To control time, people have long learned to add time to it and make it a cycle. So the watch was invented to put people in charge of time, but now someone has finally focused on eternity! To celebrate the eternal spirit, Ulysse Nardin presents the ‘original perpetual calendar watch’, equipped with the most advanced and powerful UN-32 perpetual calendar movement in watchmaking history. The date of this mechanical treasure can be adjusted back and forth, always in line with the continuous change of time. The dial is intentionally printed with the ‘∞’ symbol to remind the wearer that this limited edition watch symbolizes eternity.

 The perpetual calendar is a very complicated mechanical device, not only considering that the month is 30 or 31 days, but also distinguishing 28 days in February, and the automatic adjustment of the leap year every four years on February 29, which represents the wrist The watch has 1,461 days of mechanical memory. The ‘original perpetual calendar watch’ will undergo the first manual adjustment in 2100. Since the year 2100 should be a leap year on the solar calendar, but there is no February 29, so the date of the watch needs to be shifted back by one day.

 In addition, simply rotating the crown clockwise or counterclockwise can adjust the four windows of year, month, date and day of the week. The UN-32 movement equipped with this superb watch has a second time indication. Press the (+) (-) keys at the 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock positions, and the hour hand can be quickly adjusted back and forth to another time zone. When the hour hand crosses the international date change line, the year, month, double-window date, and four windows are automatically adjusted back and forth to reach the highest level of complex mechanical watches; and the red GMT arrow pointer can indicate the place of origin Or second time.

 Such a superb watch must be paired with the most gorgeous dragon robes. Adhering to the fine tradition of GMT ± perpetual calendar watch, the dial is like a bottomless white ocean. When hollowed out, the minute hand adds a detail and lightness, which not only ensures perfect readability for the watch, but also highlights its timeless precious value; while the GMT hand is suspended on the inner circle of the 24-hour scale. The diameter of the case is 43mm. Each watch is engraved with the factory number at 9 o’clock, which is unique. The 18K rose gold and platinum models are limited to 250 pieces each.
