You’ve seen minute repeaters perform an array of interesting motions but Ulysse Nardin turns up the heat with the sensual Limited Edition Hourstriker Pin-Up that features the impressive jaquemarts mechanism. A burlesque dancer gazes seductively from the ebony dial, her curves hidden by a peacock’s magnificent tail and feathers, while another majestic peacock sits on the opposite side. The striking figures are painstakingly created by the in-house miniature painters at Ulysse Nardin, where each delicate brushstroke brings them to life.
However, the real fun begins at the stroke of each hour, where the peacock’s wing sweeps back to reveal the dancer’s beauty for all to admire. In this moment, one can admire the complexity of the jaquemarts system – a function rarely found in wristwatches. Powered by the Calibre UN-610 selfwinding movement, the mechanical dance carries on for 42 hours.
Alas! Just like every beauty worthy of admiration, the Limited Edition Hourstriker Pin-Up will grace the wrists of the selected few as only 28 pieces in 18K rose gold or platinum are created.
