At its launch in 2013, Jade was the first timepiece to take into account a woman’s delicate manicure when manipulating the settings, thanks to its UN-310 caliber and its innovative crown design. No pulling is required to wind the watch, set the time, or adjust the date backwards or forwards, only a simple turn. A dainty crown position indicator on the dial shows the wearer which setting she is adjusting. Its movement incorporates silicium components for enhanced precision and durability.
The heart of the Ulysse Nardin Watches For Ladies Replica Executive Skeleton Tourbillon is the manually wound UN 171 movement having an impressive 170 hours (7 days) of power book beating at 2.5Hz (18,000bph). The plates and bridges of the motion are only minimally existent. This leaves the movement and tourbillon together with all the silicon escapement and balance spring the brand is well known for, fully visible from the front and back of this watch.The view in the case back mirrors the flow using the rectangular frame-like bridge supporting the movement. In the front, regions of the movement seem nearly as if suspended in air, and also the tiny gears are exposed and delicate-looking. Plates and bridges do include significant structural stability to movements, therefore tourbillons and skeletonized movements such as this are really delicate and, of course, probably best saved for doing “executive things,” and not rock climbing or off-road BMXing. That said, water-resistance is 30m. After all – this is, in the context of this high-end watch sector – the cost of the Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon Blue isn’t outrageous. The Rotonde de Cartier Flying Tourbillon, for instance, is similar in a couple of ways, but is more than twice the cost. To get a similarly bold, modern kind of skeletonization and sporting experience from Roger Dubuis’ “entry-level” Excalibur Automatic Skeleton, again, the cost is a lot higher, and that is sans tourbillon. We have discovered that rolling out a ’60s-inspired dive watch in 2017 is a fairly surefire way to turn some heads. However, if Ulysse Nardin, a brand known for complicated regatta timers and Freakish innovations requires the plunge, you really have to stop, think twice, and take a closer look. For 2017, they have introduced the Ulysse Nardin Diver Le Locle view, a simple diver having an in-house motion, silicone parts, and real vintage vibes. There’s only 1 question: will it sink or swim in a sea of dive watches positioned within an exceptionally competitive price bracket? Let us see.
The Jade “Jellyfish” attains a new level of decorative beauty with the addition of rare enameling technique mastered by Donzé Cadrans specialist, a member of the Ulysse Nardin Essential Watches Replica group of companies. With a magical marine-inspired design, its jellyfish motif dial is in Champlevé enamel.

Champlevé is an enameling technique in which cells are carved with a chisel on the metal plate and filled with vitreous enamel. The dial is then heated up until the enamel melts and is then smoothed using a file. The final step, which is also the most delicate, consists of enriching the motif by chiseling all the metal parts on the surface.
The eternal femininity of Jade Jellyfish is celebrated on the dial and the bezel set with 114 diamonds. Water resistant to 30 meters, it boasts an 18 ct white gold case with a sapphire crystal case-back and a white leather strap.
