ULYSSE NARDIN – CLASSICO SCHOONER AMERICA
Introducing the Ulysse Nardin Classico Schooner America
The schooner called America won a sailing competition in 1851 that was renamed the America’s Cup six years later in honour of the famous ship. The race is soon to host its 35th event making it the perfect time for Ulysse Nardin, partner of the Artemis Racing team, to unveil a limited gold edition (30 available) of the Classico Schooner America.
The cloisonné enamel dial sets the scene for a regatta near England’s Isle of Wight led by the schooner America. Two leaf-shape luminescent hour and minute hands burst from the middle of the miniature artwork with a central seconds hand all in silver or gold depending on the model. Dots of various sizes make for low-key time markers.
The time functions are fuelled by the self-winding UN-815 calibre in the 40mm rose or white gold case.
Price: 39,800 CHF (rose gold) – 42,900 (white gold)
