The Jade model by Ulysse Nardin and its new caliber are designed to facilitate the use of the crown and the adjustment of the date and time. The new Jade is a real tribute to the women’s clientele of Ulysse Nardin brand.
This innovative idea comes from Chai Schnyder, the President of Ulysse Nardin herself. Few years ago, she asked her husband to create such a movement because she noticed that the different manipulations of the crown of a watch could damage her nails or even chipped her new manicure.
A timepiece dedicated to women
The new UN- 310 caliber housed inside this model is an advanced technology for Ulysse Nardin but also for women. Each watch housing this caliber holds a push-button on the case at 4. This button allows adjusting different features of the crown. Each manipulation of the watch is made by turning the crown back and forth without having to pull it over.
The spirit of Ulysse Nardin has always been inventive. The silicon technology is used in the conception of the basic caliber, escapement wheels and the Swiss anchor. Silicon is a high-tech material used for the creation of the most contemporary objects but also in modern watchmaking.
A new kind of watches
Masterpieces of the Jade collection are adorned with four stone horns made with green jade placed all around the bezel. These horns form an elegant ring with emeralds and diamonds. The mother of pearl used for the dial enhances its unique and highly feminine look. Amateurs of Ulysse Nardin will also be pleased to discover a more sober version with diamonds and sapphires.
This new creation by Ulysse Nardin demonstrates the involvement of the Swiss brand to their female customers and their desire to improve the technological performance.
The incredible simplicity of use of this new Jade timepiece might even delight men!
