  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2018, the Executive Free Wheel by Ulysse Nardin combines the brand’s philosophy on altering the perception of time combined with technical mastery, which is instantly recognizable at first glance. Handsomely housed in its contemporary 44mm diameter white gold case, the semi-skeletonized dial takes on a minimalist interpretation of telling time by isolating the core components of a wristwatch on the surface of the dial. For passionate collectors of fine timepieces, the flying tourbillon escapement at 6 o’clock provides a playful touch as the wearer can admire the revolution wherever and whenever. Adding to its attraction, once the timepiece is being wound, the wearer can witness the barrel rotation as well as every single revolution of the gears featured on the dial. Equipped with a sapphire crystal, the feature has somehow been cleverly incorporated with the idea of allowing the wearer to admire the intricacy of the movement from sideways in an all-round 360 degrees.

    Offered with its full set of accessories and preserved in excellent overall condition with extremely minimal wear, the present example from circa 2018 is perfect for the discerned collector looking for a quintessential timepiece for any occasion.
