Ulysse Nardin’s Alexander the Great Westminster Carillon Tourbillon Jaquemarts Minute Repeater is an exceptional timepiece

When watchmakers think of 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 honor 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 armor and engaged in battle.

There are five of these in the charcoal-colored background of the diamond dial. English clockmaker Daniel Quare patented minute repeaters 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.
