Response to Ulysse-Nardin dinner report by Tay Kok Choon

 
On the evening of November 8th 2006 (Thursday), The HourGlass, together with Ulysse Nardin jointly organized a dinner party in celebrating Ulysse Nardin's 160th Anniversary at the Cherry Garden Restaurant inside The Oriental Hotel Singapore.

I would like first to introduce the two models dedicated to the 160th Anniversary of Ulysse Nardin before reporting the dinner proper. Here they are:

ANNIVERSARY 160


This is perhaps the most talked about watches of Ulysse Nardin this year, housed with a brand new Calibre 160, this Anniversary piece is available in white gold as well as rose gold of 500 pieces each. Case size measures 43 x 40.5mm. The above example is the rose gold version ref. 1602-100.


This is the back of the watch with crystal back showing the gorgeous calibre 160 at work. I like the blue enamels on the 22k rotor very much


Take a closer look at the all new escapement of the calibre 160, its simply breath-taking and check out also the use of silicium in the escape wheels ....


MARINE CHRONOMETER ANNIVERSARY 160


Ulysse Nardin also celebrates its 160th anniversary with none other than a Marine Chronometer as well. Housed with the famous UN-26 automatic movement, this model is made available in only rose gold and platinum of 160 pieces each. The case size of the watch is a good 43mm and this watch also features the genuine white enamel dial. Above example is the platinum version ref. 269-65.


This Marine Chronometer comes also with a see-through back for one to admire the UN-26, which is considered a workhorse in UN movements arsenal.
