Ulysse Nardin is presenting their latest creation, the Blue Cruiser, a spectacular flying “Carrousel-Tourbillon” with Dual Ulysse escapement in silicon. Stripped off its dial and hands, the Blue Cruiser is designed so that the movement revolves on itself. The rotating lower bridge indicates the hours, while the upper bridge, shaped like an anchor, shows the minutes.
Don’t look for a crown, or push pieces, the Blue Cruiser is set using the bi-directional rotating bezel. Winding the manual Caliber UN-205, is done by rotating the bezel on the back of the watch, offering a power reserve of more than seven days.
At 45 mm, the 18 ct white gold case of the Blue Cruiser has a rather imposing size. It comes mounted on a blue or brown alligator strap with deployment clasp.
