Pre Baselworld 2015: Ulysse Nardin Stranger Vivaldi

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Ulysse Nardin releases their second iteration of the Stranger music box watch.  The first version played Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers in the Night”.  The new Ulysse Nardin Stranger timepiece plays a more classical tune.

In its second release of the Stranger,  the in-house developed, self-winding, musical mechanical watch performs the famed Baroque composer Vivaldi melody, Violin Concerto in E.

It is a limited edition of 99 pieces crafted from 18-karat 5N rose gold.

The Ulysse Nardin Stranger Vivaldi

By simply pressing the on/off pusher at the 10 o’clock position, the musical mechanism can be activated or deactivated. Press the melody-on-call pusher at 8 o’clock and instant pleasure comes to those who seek a melodic lift throughout their day.

On the hour and on request, owners can enjoy listening to this cheerful and soothing Vivaldi melody.

On the hour or on demand the choice is yours.

Unique to this collection, as well, is how to wind the wristwatch, correct the time and set the date. These actions are completed by triggering the crown functions over a pusher instead of the customary action of pulling the crown. A prime advancement in watchmaking, the movement enables adjustments with significant ease, as each manipulation happens by a forward or backward turn of the crown.

We enjoyed the first version playing Strangers in the Night.  This new version is also music to our ears.
