The art of enameling in the world of creating timepieces seems to be lost in the sands of time, which is why Swiss watchmakers Ulysse Nardin has decided to renew it in their own special way. Taking inspiration from the Royal Navy battleship HMS Caesar is their new limited edition timepiece named the HMS Caesar Classico Cloisonné. The watches sports segments that are “divided by a gold wire segment that prevents the liquid, powdered enamel from flowing into other melting chambers.” The cloisons have been crafted using more than 500 mm of fine gold wire for each of the cloisonné dial, which required 50 person-hours to complete the 26 processes.
Being a part of the Ulysse Nardin’s Cloisonné collection, the watch is crafted in a refined and intricate manner, like other watches. Sporting a 40 mm diameter, the watch runs on a COSC chronometer-certified UN caliber 815 movements. With just 30 pieces available in 18-karat white and rose gold variants, the watch comes with 50-meters of water resistance and 42-hours of power reserve.
Another addition to the collection is the limited edition Ulysse Nardin Classico Enamel Champlevé Dragon. Limited to 30 units, the 40mm Classico Dragon is also available in 18-karat white and rose gold are available. Equipped with a self-winding UN-815 movement, it comes with a 42-hour power reserve. Both watches have neeb finished with a hand-sewn alligator leather strap with a white-gold or rose-gold buckle.
