Ulysse Nardin, the renowned watchmaker, known for its complications and unique timepieces, has just released a new astronomical watch called the Blast Moonstruck. This beautiful timepiece was designed by master watchmaker Ludwig Oeschlin and is powered by the UN-106 self-winding automatic movement.
The Blast Moonstruck, a new 45mm diameter timepiece with black ceramic and DLC-coated titanium case, is designed to display the moon and sun’s position on an easy-to-read dial from a specific location on earth. Thanks to its intricate design, the Blast Moonstruck is sure to be a hit with collectors and enthusiasts alike.
The Ulysse Nardin Blast Moonstruck’s dial begins at the center and goes out to the perimeter. The Northern Hemisphere (globe) is depicted inside a dome-shaped sapphire crystal that rises slightly above the other portion of the boxed sapphire display. An 18k surrounds the engraved world rose gold ring with a triangle pointer filled with lume and floats over the sword hands adorned with a brilliant-cut diamond.
Around the dial, the moon and sun revolve in their elliptical orbits, looking to a person on earth as if they were viewing them from real. The tidal markings on the sun and moon rings allow individuals to read tidal information without manually calculating it.
The moon phase aperture takes the precise time for a complete circle while the sun floats on its ovular path directly above. The sun and moon lines on their respective ellipses create a breathtaking astronomical spectacle on one’s wrist. The second 24 time zone and local time are displayed on the twist-ring dial, which can be changed with the twin pushers on the left side of the case. The Ulysse Nardin Blast Moonstruck offers tidal coefficients and the lunar month, in addition to the moon phase, world time, and position of the moon and sun relative to the earth.
The Blast Moonstruck is water-resistant to 30 meters, but it’s not meant to be worn in deep waters. Its unique look is well suited to a choice of black alligator leather, velvet, or rubber strap with matching DLC titanium and pink gold folding clasp. If you’re a stickler for detail, the astronomical watch is your style, and you have about $74,000 to spare, the Ulysse Nardin Blast Moonstruck is ready and waiting for you!
