Ulysse Nardin Genghis Khan
Posted by wristwatch on August 17, 2007
The first ever Westminster Carillon Tourbillon Jaquemarts Minute repeater.
The visible one minute Tourbillon is integrated into the black onyx watch dial. The Westminster has four gongs, each with a different tone (Mi-Do-Re-Sol). When the repeater is activated, the hour sound is Sol and the minute sound is Mi. All four gongs sound in three different sequences for the quarters. The figures on the black onyx dial are hand-carved in 18 ct gold. The movements of the Jaquemarts are synchronized with the sound of the gongs. The realization of the Genghis Khan is an absolute highlight of the art of traditional mechanical watchmaking, both in technical as well as artistic skills. The Genghis Khan will be produced over the next 6-8 years in a limited edition of 30 pieces each in white and pink gold 18 ct.
