Ulysse Nardin Royal Blue Tourbillion

The Royal Blue Tourbillon is constructed on the principles of James Pellaton (La Locle’s famous watchmaker). The skeletonized movement hides its secret as to what is holding the flying tourbillion, which appears to be revolving weightlessly in its cage. The winding stem is also invisible.
The Royal Blue Tourbillion (42 mm) is in platinum and the interior of the bezel is set with diamonds and blue sapphires as hour and minute markers. The setting of the time and the winding of the Calibre UN-79 manual winding movement uses a circular rack mechanism.
This Limited Edition timepiece (99 pieces) has an anti-reflective sapphire crystal front and back, an alligator leather strap with a folding platinum buckle and is water-resistant to 50 metres
