The great Carthage general Hannibal Baka was revered by the Romans. He is an outstanding military strategist and an outstanding strategist in the world. During the Second Punic War, Hannibal made extraordinary achievements in capturing Rome, leading his army of elephants across the Pyrenees and the Alps to triumph in Italy.
ULYSSE NARDIN delves into the storyline of the story, supplements the brand’s unparalleled craftsmanship with extraordinary creativity, and creates the Hannibal minute repeater timepiece to reproduce this immortal journey, allowing the wearer to read the time while being realistic Look and feel. The entire watch uses classic black as the base, and the dolls carved out of three materials: gold, silver and copper exude their unique charm, showing the man’s grandeur. There are 4 puppets inlaid on the surface of the platinum case: Hannibal rides a horse, Hannibal stays in a combat posture, and Hannibal’s elephant and army. A magnificent scene of heroic battles. These moving figures, as well as the background of the mountains and the surrounding terrain, are all hand-carved in platinum and fixed on the surface made of granite. Platinum and granite were selected from the mountains that Hannibal and his brigade passed in the third century BC. ULYSSE NARDIN further expresses its creative spirit by adding this unique element to the watch design.
ULYSSE NARDIN is one of the few top watchmaking brands in the world that still uses superficial dolls to make minute repeaters. British watchmaker Daniel Quare patented his minute repeater mechanism before electricity was invented in the late 17th century. With this teller device, Quare found a way to know the time from the clock after sunset. In the late 19th century, the first minute repeater appeared. ULYSSE NARDIN, as a pioneer in the revival of the timepiece technology, has been committed to the development of the minute repeater timepiece in the 1980s. The production process of each questionnaire of ULYSSE NARDIN is meticulous, and its complicated craftsmanship and original design require a lot of human resources and energy. Exquisite questionnaires can only be created in limited quantities to have excellent quality and excellent sound. Adjusting the tone is an extremely difficult and complicated process, and each watch needs to be independently adjusted by a master watchmaker. For each adjustment, you must first remove some metal from the string and then reinstall the movement, because the best sound effect can only be obtained if the test is completed on the assembled watch. There is no other compromise.
The ULYSSE NARDIN minute repeater is equipped with a special UN-78 movement, which can play a distinctive sound and strike the four different scales of Mi, Do, Re and Sol. When the time signal device is activated, the time signal sound is Sol, and the time signal is divided into Mi, and the time tone is different. On the surface, the moving puppet and beautiful music complement each other, and the puppet can move synchronously with the time, moment, minute scale, or different time combination.
One moment is Mi-Do-Re-Sol
The second moment is Mi-Do-Re-Sol / Sol-Re-Mi-Do
Three moments are Mi-Do-Re-Sol / Sol-Re-Mi-Do / Mi-Do-Re-Sol
In addition, Hannibal’s minute repeater watch is clearly visible on the surface for one minute from the Westminster Dapeng Zhongle Tourbillon. The bridge used in this tourbillon is exactly the same as the shape manufactured by James Pellaton for ULYSSE NARDIN in the early twentieth century. Each part of the movement is decorated, beveled and polished carefully, and carefully polished by hand, which fully demonstrates the quality Extreme pursuit. From the careful selection of raw materials to the perfect use of precision engineering, this piece of work showcases the ultimate craftsmanship and extraordinary creativity of ULYSSE NARDIN.
Just as Hannibal Barca formulated a highly innovative and conscientious strategy to conquer Italy and southern Europe, ULYSSE NARDIN has pioneered the industry in the field of top-level watchmaking, pioneering the watchmaking industry and repeatedly promoting the watchmaking industry Technological innovation. ULYSSE NARDIN chooses to pay tribute to this history, which is a unique interpretation of its superb quality and outstanding innovation.
