Swiss luxury watchmaker Ulysse Nardin experiments with technological advancements and conceptual design for its latest timepiece collection, the BLAST. Inspired by the characteristics of extreme explorers, the innovative watch delivers a complex, geometric structure reminiscent of a furtive aircraft to create a vigorous and imposing masterpiece.

The new BLAST offers a muscular and robust open-worked model, allowing fans to view the intricacies behind the delicate craftsmanship. The watches feature a new powerful automatic silicium tourbillon nested in a bold, X-shaped cage, which beats inside at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. Staying true to Ulysse Nardin’s iconic design codes, the piece also incorporates a rectangular frame, a 3-horned signature fixing the strap and a smooth colored bezel.

Powered by the recently developed UN-172 movement, the BLAST is fitted with an automatic tourbillon and a new tiny yet powerful platinum micro-rotor. Every element of this modern marvel was ingeniously conceived, from the triple-toothed round bezel and the double “X” that clamps the movements together in a sandwich, to the self-deploying buckle which releases effortlessly in just one click. 

BLAST is available in four distinct models, each powered by the new UN-172 manufacture movement, an automatic tourbillon and a new self-deploying buckle.
