Beware of Blast
Supercharged with classic Ulysse Nardin savoir-faire, BLAST is an avatar of its time, a potent force of nature. This technological wonder made with rock-hard, masculine lines has ignited a flame that will send seismic shockwaves through the watchmaking world to its core.
The complex, geometric architecture of the tessellated horns create a pumped-up, vigorous and imposing masterpiece and remind a furtive aircraft.
BLAST is playing off the transparency of its new powerful automatic silicium tourbillon nested in a bold, X-shaped cage, which beats inside at a frequency of 2.5 Hz.
BLAST is the first Ulysse Nardin Skeleton model featuring an automatic tourbillon and a new tiny yet powerful platinum micro-rotor, visible only from the front of the watch at 12 o’clock.
"Blast models are a blast from the past and have poached design cues from the Skeleton Tourbillon and the Skeleton X, both members of UN’s Executive Collection. For the first time in its history, the Skeleton Tourbillon collection is equipped with an automatic movement and a new platinum micro-rotor."
