Since the early days of the modern revival, Ulysse Nardin copy has been an innovator of complex luxury watches. Thanks to the visionary vision of watchmaker Ludwig Oechslin, the Athens GMT +/- Perpetual continues this tradition.
A lot is happening here. The perpetual calendar is very complete (day, day, month, year, decade), but it is also the most user-friendly perpetual calendar on the market. Ulysse Nardin designed the system with travel, convenience and accidental setup errors in mind.
For example, most perpetual calendars cannot be reversed. This poses a serious problem for travelers who may be traveling to a time zone after their origin and are one day behind. Also, setting mistakes are common when new buyers are trying to adjust a perpetual calendar, and setting the price of a watch too early can be a paid holiday for the watch.
Ulysse Nardin’s GMT+/- Perpetual eliminates this danger with elegant engineering, allowing the use of the crown and pusher to roll back the calendar. It’s intuitive and foolproof.
As a GMT and dual-hour watch, this Ulysse Nardin offers the same practicality as any watch with an independently adjustable 24-hour hand. Track remote contacts and avoid calling at awkward times of the day.
The 42mm 18-karat Ulysse Nardin white gold case features complex refinements including stepped lugs, a distinctive concave bezel and flared case sides that allow the watch to read on the wrist similar to a 43 or 44mm. It has a huge presence thanks to the classic combination of white metal and black dial.
Inside, the chronometer-certified ETA base movement is combined with Ulysse Nardin’s industry-leading permanent module to form the Calibre UN 32 movement. Its circular Côtes de Genève and engraved gold winding rotor can be seen through the sapphire caseback. replica watch Review
