  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2014, the Year of the Horse on the Lunar New Year calendar, Ulysse Nardin pays tribute to the free-roaming animal with the Classico Horse edition. For more than 30 years, Ulysse Nardin has been embracing the rare art of enameling on their creations. In 2011, the brand acquired long-time collaborator and famed enameler manufacturer Donzé Cadrans and has devoted to this centuries old craft ever since. The present model is crafted with the champlevé method where cells are carved with a chisel directly on the dial and filled with enamel resulting an exceptional piece of art. A pair of majestic stallions in white and black galloping with grace in harmony amongst the depth of the mountainous landscape in dark greens and blues. Cased in the warmth of a 40mm diameter pink gold case, the Classico Horse is powered by the COSC certified self-winding UN815 movement that provides up to 42 hours of power reserve. Preserved in excellent overall condition and numbered 00 of a limited edition of 88 pieces only, the present timepiece being the first produced example certainly embodies the freewill and passion of the animal and also the brand.
