2017 SIHH Ulysse Nadin is strengthening the classic collection is not one, not two, but three new watches. Since the manufacture of large fiefs enamel dial, since the rooster, cock honor the coming years, and finally, since Hourstriker chime hours and half hours.
We started with the new Ulysse Nadine dry white production reference 3203-136-2 / E3 will have a “big fief” blue enamel dial. The Grand Fief is a French “fire” that refers to a specific technical preparation enamel dial. It is tricky to perform as it involves adding more oxides in the dial and then firing until the desired color and pattern appears.
Ulysse Nadin description from the production reference 3203-136-2 / E3 “translucent quality, but did not see the actual observation, it is difficult to comment.But in view of Ulysse Nadin mastery of art and records, we have high expectations Another thing about enamel is that its color does not fade, which means that Ulysse Nadine Dry White Production Reference 3203-136-2 / E3 will retain its blue hue over the next several decades.
The Ulysse Nadine Dry White Production Reference 3203-136-2 / E3 has a 40 mm stainless steel shell and a 30 meter waterproof. The thickness of only 9.6 mm, so that the meeting place to see a good choice.

2017 will see the coming of the Year of the Rooster, and to mark this occasion, Ulysse Nardin will be releasing the Classico Rooster watch. It comes in a 40mm 18k rose gold case and features an intricately crafted dial featuring an enamel rooster. The rooster is crafted using the champlevé technique, in which the dial is carved to form pits where enamel can be added. From the press photos we have received, the rooster looks absolutely brilliant, and we can’t wait to see the actual watch at SIHH 2017.
The Ulysse Nardin Classico Rooster is limited to just 88 pieces and is powered by Ulysse Nardin’s self-winding Caliber UN-815, which is also COSC-certified. Water resistance is 50 meters.
Finally, we have the Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up. Ulysse Nardin’s Hourstriker watches are some of the most provocative (just take a look at the possibly NSFW Hourstriker Erotica Jarretiere) and this new Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up is no different.
In the Hourstriker Pin-Up, we have a dancer in suggestive pumps, flowers in her hair, and covered by little more than a peacock. And when the hourstriker function is activated, the peacock’s wings will sweep to reveal the dancer behind.
The dancer is brought to life using acrylic paint that is applied and mixed directly onto the dial. And according to Ulysse Nardin, each dancer takes around 50 to 90 hours to complete.
The Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up comes in a 43mm 18k rose gold or platinum case, and water resistance is rated at 30 meters. The movement within is the self-winding Caliber UN-610, which provides 42 hours of power reserve and has the hourstriking mechanism that chimes the hours and half-hours. The Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Pin-Up is limited to 28 pieces.
