Discovering the Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon, During Geneva Watch Days

Taking a closer look at UN's latest bold watch.

A couple of weeks ago, the MONOCHROME team visited Geneva Watch Days, which will probably be the only major watch fair for Europe this year. On this occasion, we visited brands, talked with their teams and, of course, saw some of the models recently introduced in the metal – and yes, after months of digital-only presentations, this really made a difference. And of course, some watches made quite an impression on us, such as the new Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon, a bold, radical and modern take on the brand’s new design codes. And with our latest video, you can also discover this watch in motion.

To explain this new high-end, complex and striking watch, we talk to Ulysse Nardin’s Chief Product Officer, Jean-Christophe Sabatier, giving us the full story on how the brand developed this new movement, how the watch was designed and how – something quite rare – both elements have been, from the very beginning, imagined jointly, and not as separate parts. In fact, the movement of the Ulysse Nardin Blast Tourbillon, an automatic tourbillon with silicium technology and an automatic micro-rotor, was conceived from scratch as part of the whole watch, as a technical and design element. Which explains why there’s such great integration and consistency in the design of this new watch.
