Ulysse Nardin 2019
Ulysse Nardin worked alongside Milo Manara, one of the greatest authors of erotic graphic novels, on two series of ten sensually-charged watches, in steel and in gold. With just ten of each design, the total series is limited to 200 pieces. They take us into the depths of the ocean where the beautiful Nadia and mermaid Ulyssa become lovers in a sensuous, dreamlike atmosphere. Miniature-painted from ten illustrations by Manara, these ten watches form a palindrome, a sequence that can be read starting from the beginning or the end, so that each illustration can exist independently of the others. They are driven by the UN-320 in-house automatic calibre incorporating silicon technology, which Ulysse Nardin pioneered.
