At the heart of the refined architecture of the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon timepiece is the UN-171 manufacture movement, its complex mechanics stripped to a bare minimum – an incredible feat of technical savoir-faire. The essential beauty of the inner workings is fully revealed by its bold, aerial design. A design which takes the oversized Roman numerals, sword markers and raised rectangular bridge of the Executive collection and makes them sing with a renewed power.
Nestled in the pure lines of the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon’s mechanical movement is a flying tourbillon, made in-house at the Swiss manufactureand comprising silicium parts. Widely celebrated as one of the most difficult complications to achieve in mechanical timekeeping, the beauty of this tourbillon is fully displayed through the fine tracery of its form. Yet another impressive feature of the Executive Skeleton Tourbillon is the power reserve – extended to a life-saving 7 days. This timepiece means business and celebrates the technical savoir-faire, pioneering expertise and artistic sensibility of Ulysse Nardin.
