In 2014, Ulysse Nardin continued to "produce and sell", replacing many of its existing watch collections with new ones including in-house movements. With the "Perpetual Manufacture", the brand's perpetual calendar movement has received a comprehensive in-house treatment. Previously it was a semi-sport that combined an internal module with a basic Swiss ETA automatic. In order to debut the fully in-house perpetual calendar movement, Ulysse Nardin will launch its first limited-edition Discount replica watches.
Ulysse Nardin has always made in-house movements, but most of them are in their highest-end watches. This includes their various minute repeaters, tourbillons and a range of exotic high-complication timepieces. Only after the UN-118 movement was finally released in 2012 (hands on here), Ulysse Nardin started producing in-house movements for their larger watch collection. The UN-118 has already been praised, but a range of other movements and in 2014 among various new movements is the movement UN-32 automatic perpetual calendar, which exists in a rare start of its kind. It is also COSC Observatory certified.
A perpetual calendar is defined to take leap years into account, which means that no adjustment is required until the year 2100. Perpetual calendars also vary in their design and in the way they indicate information. Although most clearly indicates the day, month and leap year. Many also indicate moon phases, but not this one. However, the UN-32 does have a special trick - its ability to adjust the calendar function forwards and backwards. Surprisingly, less than half a dozen perpetual calendar watches made today are able to do this.replica Ulysse Nardin GMT Perpetual
This means that you can adjust the perpetual calendar back and forth in time. Try this on most perpetual calendar watches and they either won't be able to do it or will break in the process. The calendar display provides a convenient reading window for the large date, day, month and year indicators at the bottom of the dial. The latter is a replacement for the leap year indicator. The system knows which years have longer February and takes that into account. So it looks like just another Ulysse Nardin perpetual calendar dial that is really a little different. The dial also includes a GMT hand, with dedicated buttons on the left and right sides of the case to move the local time forward or backward - making the Perpetual Manufacture a very solid traveler's watch.
The initial models in the limited-edition set will be very high-end and only available in 18k red gold or platinum cases. The polished case is 43mm wide and features a typical Ulysse Nardin design. I love how the dials are combined in terms of design and legibility. The dial texture is also nice. What I don't believe right now is the hand. They're not bad, but they really don't look like what we usually see from brands. They felt the dial was a little thin. They're not actually too short, but perhaps the narrow style mixed with their skeleton makes them a bit bland in their otherwise bold aesthetic presentation. Maybe my assertion is wrong, I will be able to make a better determination when I see the Perpetual Manufacture watch in person.
Another new feature on the dial is the "∞" (infinity) character that Ulysse Nardin puts on the "Perpetual" label. Maybe we'll see this on all the perpetual calendar watches from the brand going forward. Overall, this piece is very interesting and I look forward to checking it out soon.Shopping replica watches
