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.
"The Blast is Ulysee Nardin’s latest attempted disruption of the watch industry. Certainly on the innovation side of the scale, the brand new line is an evolution of the company’s successful Executive Collection."
