Ulysse Nardin launches Amerigo Vespucci
Ulysse Nardin sails into 2014 with the latest addition to its Classico Cloisonné collection, the Amerigo Vespucci. Known for acknowledging magnificent ships of exploration, battle and beauty, Ulysse Nardin celebrates one of Italy’s most esteemed full-rigged frigates in this latest timepiece.
The luxury Swiss watch maker Ulysse Nardin is famous for making highly accurate nautical timepieces, the Amerigo Vespucci carries on this tradition in magnificent fashion. This latest edition to the Classico Cloisonné collection depicts the famous Italian naval ship Amerigo Vespucci in glorious detail.
This is achieved through the process of enamelling, a lost art harnessed by Ulysse Nardin and other bespoke swiss watch makers that is becoming increasing popular in 2014. The miniature replica on the watch face appears as authentic as its real-life counterpart. Its luminous colours and three-dimensional effect on the dial add to its essence of realism.
A limited-edition collection of 30 pieces crafted in 18-karat rose and white gold will be made making this watch a rare piece. The Amerigo Vespucci continues the tradition of the Classico Cloisonné collection and its depictions of famous vessels, bringing a sense of adventure to its wearers, accompanying them on their many life journeys.
