Ulysse Nardin’s new limited edition minute repeater timepiece pays tribute musical genre of jazz

Swiss luxury watch manufacture Ulysse Nardin has unveiled a new limited timepiece named Jazz Minute Repeater. The brand new complication timepiece unites traditional watch making with the fine art of hand-engraved Jaquemarts. As the name of the watch suggests, it pays tribute to the musical genre of jazz; a charming and vibrant yet complex type of music brought to life by African Americans in the early 1900s, fusing African-based music with European harmony and form elements. The minute repeater with chiming hours, quarters and minutes, and two chime tones features a 42mm platinum case along with an AR-coated sapphire crystal and a sapphire display back.

When the minute repeater lever is activated, the hours, quarters and minutes, or a combination of these units, chime, and the band begins its show, playing along with the time. Inside the watch is the Swiss manual-wind Ulysse Nardin in-house caliber UN-74 movement, with a power reserve of 36 hours. The Jazz Minute Repeater, a result of remarkable watch-making skills, will be produced in a limited-edition of 18 pieces in platinum.
