Carnival of Venice: Ulysse Nardin's New Minute RepeatersharetweetshareUlysse Nardin's San Marco minute repeater, introduced inside the late 1980s u boat watches , would have been a bold rebuke on the so-called "quartz crisis," which at the time appeared to herald the obsolescence with the complicated mechanical wristwatch. This year, in advance of this spring's Baselworld watch fair, Ulysse Nardin again struts its stuff like a producer of ornately designed chiming replica watches with all the launch of the brand new Carnival of Venice.Just like the San Marco watches , when Repeater Carnival of Venice got its inspiration from Italy's legendary "City of Canals." Furthermore, it uses minuscule automatons, called "Jaquemarts," that happen to be set to the dial and come in sync with the chiming in the activated minute repeater. With this watch, the Jaquemarts are a couple of masked figures inside dial's center (masks certainly are a longstanding tradition in the Carnival of Venice , the historic festival from which the watch derives its name), who lift their masks as the repeater chimes the hours, quarters, and minutes. The movement powering this musical masquerade ball is Ulysse Nardin's manual-wind Caliber UN-71 ceramic watch , using a 48-hour power reserve. (Visit photos for larger images.)However, the dial is eye-catching even if your Jaquemarts remain along with the chimes are silent. Already well-known because of its using cloisonne enamel on pieces for example last year's Santa Maria special, Ulysse Nardin opted for this piece a dial in champleve enamel an ornamental technique practiced by only a hardly any artisans today and further refine it with hand-chiseling and decorative engraving.Only 18 pieces of once Repeater Carnival of Venice are going to be made; the 42-mm case is made of platinum, though Ulysse Nardin can also be giving the option of 18k rose gold.To read about more minute repeater replica watches, click the link.Receive all the news, features and reviews from WatchTime without cost!
