The Marine Mega Yacht is a follow-up to 2016’s Grand Deck Tourbillon, but whereas that groundbreaking timepiece channeled the seem of classical picket sailboats, this one is influenced by the greater graceful, high-tech seem to be of contemporary luxurious yachts. The teakwood sample of the past watch’s dial right here gives technique to a mix of white gold and blue grand feu enamel, with the bow of a luxurious vessel depicted emerging from misty, foaming ocean waves. because it did for the Grand Deck, Ulysse Nardin teamed up with artistic complications guru Christophe Claret to develop and build the Mega Yacht. among its technical talking facets are a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, which rotates as soon as each 60 seconds, whose primarily designed propellor blades resemble these used on luxury vessels.

The watch’s guide-winding mechanism is designed to simulate the elevating and losing of the anchor on a ship. Its energy reserve — a good 80 hours — is displayed through a small, plowshare-design anchor linked to a series via an anchor ring. The chain is linked to a miniature windlass, a sort of winch used to hoist anchors and other heavy objects, constructed into the flow and visual via a large aperture at 12 o’clock. The windlass, connected with the aid of wheels to the winding mechanism, raises the anchor from 0 to eight on a horizontal scale as the wearer winds the watch, and the anchor lowers as the mainspring runs down.

The Marine Mega Yacht also contains a extremely contemporary and actual classification of moon-part reveal as well as a complicated indicator for the heights of tides — two aspects which are interconnected as well as of practical use to the navigator of a luxurious liner. The 3D spherical moon, which rotates inside a round window at 9 o’clock, boasts a photo-practical depiction of the genuine lunar floor. it is constructed from two precisely engraved half-spheres, one handled in blue PVD (for the dark “new moon” phases), the different rhodiumed (to characterize the illuminated “full moon” sectors). A window on the facet of the case center — designed to resemble the monitor of the Chadburn Telegraphs used by way of captains on the bridges of ships to communicate with the engine room — exhibits the position of the winding crown: “S” for surroundings the time on the palms, “W” for winding the stream, and the intermediate “T/M” place through which the wearer can adjust the moon phase and tide quantity. One counter-clockwise flip of the crown during this place represents four days in the lunar scale, while one clockwise turn strikes the tidal indicator disk 1/4 around the rotation, or 9.5 hours.

The 44-mm platinum case is water-immune to 50 meters and homes the UN-631 caliber, constructed from 504 components and beating at a frequency of 21,600 vph. On display in the back of a clear sapphire caseback, this customized-made guide-wound circulate is designed to resemble the machinery in a yacht’s engine room. The watch’s precious metal hull is completely built-in into its navy blue alligator strap. every of the 30 items offers a plaque within the side of the watch upon which an owner can order a private engraved identify of motto.
