Ulysse Nardin pays tribute to HMS Caesar

First published: 01-07-2011

Fans of nautical adventures of times gone by should check out a new timepiece from Ulysse Nardin.

Entitled the HMS Caesar Classico Cloisonne, the watch has been created to honour the eighty-gun ship that first sailed the world's oceans in 1793.

Such a vessel can be seen in detail across the dial of the ticker, with a picture of the ship at sea stretching across all elements on this part of the watch.

One of the most eye-catching parts of this design is the regal red flag that was often associated with the craft, which fits into the centre of the dial.

More than 500mm of fine gold wiring has been used in order to create the style, so that the liquid powdered enamel is constantly kept in place.

Consumers can choose between a rose gold or white case designs, each of which is limited to just 30 pieces.

Ulysse Nardin is no stranger to watches themed for sea-bound adventures, with the brand recently revealing the Marine Diver Black Sea, which comes complete with 200m of water resistance.
