On the occasion of the Monaco Yacht Show 2021, which took place last week in the picturesque Port Hercules, Ulysse Nardin has launched its latest ultra-complex marine watch. The Ulysse Nardin 2021 Marine Mega Yacht Limited Edition watch has a 44mm case made of 18K 5N rose gold and, like the 2019 platinum edition, is regulated by a flying tourbillon with a tourbillon cage.
Continuing the nautical theme, the center of the dial shows a golden motif of the ship’s bow. On the left side of the dial is a precise 3D moon phase indicator with a unique dual function tide indicator (which shows tidal coefficients and volumes).
Opposite the moon phase indicator on the right side of the dial is a 3D anchor attached to a winch at 12 o’clock, just like on a real yacht, and this anchor together indicates how much of the 80-hour power reserve is. stay.
Inspired by Ulysse Nardin’s nautical clocks of the past, gold hands with large luminescent arrow-shaped tips indicate the hours and minutes, completing the yacht aesthetic.
Under the openwork dial and visible through the sapphire case back, the gondola houses the 3Hz hand-wound caliber UN-631 with a diameter of 37 mm and a total of 504 components, including the flying 60-second tourbillon, the moon phase display, the power reserve display, tide display and watch.
The dial contains a mechanism that displays the height of the tides in real-time in relation to a specific location, in addition to indicating the seasonal coefficients.
A badge on the left flank shows the number “X / 30” of each limited edition. And because this is marketed to superyacht owners and priced accordingly, your ship name or motto can be engraved on a plaque on the right side of the watch. The Ulysse Nardin 2021 Marine Mega Yacht 5N rose gold (Ref. 6312-305) comes with an integrated navy blue alligator leather strap, is water-resistant to 50 meters, is limited to 30 pieces, and costs 306,000 US dollars. Potentially this would be one of the most expensive watches in the world.
