Ulysse Nardin Jade 3103-125B/591.3

In 1846, Ulysse Nardin was inspired by the powerful movement of the ocean and started to be best known for its “manufacture of highly accurate marine chronometers” back then. In 2013, Ulysse Nardin introduced 5 in-house calibers, and one of them—UN-370 for Jade is the first in-house caliber (which is also a hand-engraved skeleton caliber) for ladies with a unique design of the crown. For female watch lovers, crown has been one of the most annoying component of a gorgeous watch. Sometimes it might mess up your manicure when you are using fingernails to pull it out.

Ulysse Nardin has taken this into consideration. In the Jade Collection, they made a special design for the crown that it doesn’t need to be pulled out to adjust the time and date—there is a pusher at 4 o’clock location that you can choose the crown function. The crown position indicator is on the white mother-of-pearl dial at 3 o’clock position for winding, date setting, and time setting. There are also 22 diamonds on the dial that form the shape of a wave, where at 6 o’clock position there is a small seconds-hand dial. It also features a 39 by 36 mm stainless steel case with 56 diamonds on the bezel. In the base caliber, this watch also has anti-magnetic silicium so that its precision won’t be affected by electronic devices and magnetic fields. The elegant deep blue satin strap perfectly matches with the watch, and together they perform a marvelous symphony of the timepiece and the mysterious ocean.
