Blast Tourbillon 45mm White

Supercharged with classic Ulysse Nardin savoir-faire, Blast Tourbillon is an avatar of its time, a potent force of nature. This technological wonder made with rock-hard, masculine lines has ignited a flame that will send seismic shockwaves through the watchmaking world to its core.

Now, one could certainly argue that a tourbillon like this is hardly an everyday watch, but I think that depends on who’s wearing it as much as anything else. And having a solid three days of reserve means you can comfortably switch it out every so often knowing that it won’t need to be reset for a few days.

The complex, geometric architecture of the tessellated horns create a pumped-up, vigorous and imposing masterpiece and reminds a furtive aircraft, playing off the transparency of its new powerful automatic silicium tourbillon nested in a bold, X-shaped cage, which beats inside at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. Blast Tourbillon is the first Ulysse Nardin Skeleton model featuring an automatic tourbillon and a new tiny yet powerful platinum micro-rotor, visible only from the front of the watch at 12 o’clock.
