This year Ulysse Nardin ventures into the world of the neon rainbow setting with two glamorous new watches: The Blast Tourbillon Rainbow and the Lady Diver Rainbow. Both of these timepieces are inspired by the iridescent rainbow colours of silicium.
The Blast Tourbillon Rainbow features a skeleton “X” design. The 45mm timepiece with a micro-rotor in platinum is placed at 12 o’clock while a total of 50 rubies and sapphire baguette gemstones adorn the bezel and the indexes of the watch.
Water resistant to 50 meters and driven by an automatic flying tourbillon, the Blast is powered by the UN-172 calibre movement with Silicium technology (escapement wheel, anchor & balance spring) enclosed in a black DLC titanium case and sealed with a black ceramic polished and sandblasted upper case. This limited edition of 50 timepieces promises 72 hours of power reserve and comes with a waterproof velvet rubber strap or a black alligator strap, together with a black DLC titanium and black ceramic self-deploying buckle.
The Lady Diver Rainbow is the next generation of the Lady Diver but with eye-catching, dazzling decorative touches. Forty stones (ruby, aquamarine, topaz, tsavorite and sapphire) are set on the concave unidirectional bezel of this new watch, catching the light no matter how deep the dive. Eleven diamonds serving as indexes increase the scintillating effect of the watch and bring a touch of elegance to this sublime diving watch.
The 39mm watch is water resistant up to 330 metres and features the UN-816 automatic movement with Silicium technology. Both white and black LADY DIVER RAINBOW models come in a limited edition of 300 timepieces each on a white or black structured rubber strap.
