When watchmakers think of a creation, they gallop over centuries to bring out the best and most remarkable achievements to attract their buyers. Alexander the Great was a great man and to honour him, Ulysse Nardin has disclosed its stunning Alexander the Great Minute Repeater Westminster Carillon Tourbillon Jaquemarts. It boasts a 44 mm case of 18ct white gold or rose gold 4N, and is water-resistant to 30ms. It also features 36 jewels with each part of the movement decorated, angled and hand-finished. It uses Jaquemarts on the dial to depict Alexander the Great clad in armour and engaged in battle.
There are five of these in the charcoal-coloured background of the diamond dial. Minute repeaters were patented by English clockmaker Daniel Quare in the late 17th century to give a watch to have time not only seen, but heard. There will be only 100 of these special timepieces available worldwide.
