Only Watch 2015: Ulysse Nardin Stranger

Based on the Ulysse Nardin manufacture caliber 690 using silicium technology, the ”Only Watch Stranger” watch is not only easy to operate, but it also takes wearers down the reminiscent road of childhood. Its muse: a classical music box.

Patrik Hoffmann, CEO of Ulysse Nardin said: “An organization with a good cause as impressive as The Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy is led by champions for champions.” This lead to a famous song being chosen for the watch.

On the hour and on request, owners can enjoy listening to the famous melody of Queen’s “We are the Champions” thanks to the copyright granted exceptionally to Ulysse Nardin for its participation to the charity cause association by the EMI Music Publishing Germany GmgH company, sub-editor of Queen Music Ltd.

For those unfamiliar with Queen, here is the song for your listening/viewing pleasure:

 

As revolutionary as it is in engineering, it is equally stylish. Exhibiting a modern appeal, highlighting its anthracite dial and cherry red blades of the musical mechanism, its aesthetic is further warmed by a black titanium case.

The auction will be held on the 7th of November in Geneva.  This will bring music to the lucky bidder’s ears!
