Ulysse Nardin’s ‘Year of the Rooster’ Rules the Roost!


Ulysse Nardin celebrates the rooster’s energetic panache with the “Year of the Rooster” timepiece, the most recent addition to the Classico Collection. Confident and dynamic, the rooster rules the roost with hard work and innate talent. Very little escapes the powers of perception of this highly observant creature, renowned for its sociable, gregarious nature. In keeping with its pride of place on this precision Classico, the rooster is also widely appreciated for its punctual timekeeping!

In this classic depiction, the artist has perfectly captured the rooster’s natural energy. It is the centuries-old champlevé method of enameling that brings the artist’s sketch to life. A rare art form and one mastered by very few, the champlevé technique involves the carving of cells with a chisel directly on the dial, which are then filled with enamel. Its colors come from the careful blending of different metallic oxides. The piece is then fired until the enamel melts.

For over 25 years, Ulysse Nardin has been bringing this artistry to its dials, and is in fact one of the only watch-makers devoted to the centuries-old craft. It is mastered in-house at Donzé Cadrans, a member of the Ulysse Nardin group of companies. For 2017, Ulysse Nardin’s “Year of the Rooster”, will be a limited edition of only 88 pieces, in 18K rose gold. The timepiece is powered by the self-winding UN-815 movement with its COSC certification.
