Swiss-based watchmaker, Ulysse Nardin, has launched a limited edition model to coincide with July 4 celebrations.
To commemorate the brand’s longstanding ties with the US navy, the brand has released ‘Stars and Stripes’, a special edition of its Executive Tourbillon.
The watch has been created in homage to the American flag and features 13 white and red stripes, and 50 white stars on a blue background.
Only 50 pieces are set to be released, with each piece representing one state in the union.
In choosing Ulysse Nardin as its nautical supplier in 1902, the Swiss watchmaker’s instruments have proven popular across the US Navy, and have won the Washington Naval Observatory’s competition to equip its torpedo boats on several occasions.
On the new model of the Executive Tourbillon, the movement of the caliber has been stripped of all unnecessary elements, with each piece angled and polished.
The UN-171 manufactured model, with 170-hour power reserve, is topped with a blue ceramic bezel, blue crown and blue carbon effect leather strap.
