The Imperial St. Petersburg
Maxi Marine Chronometer Enamel, Limited Edition.
Ulysse Nardin has produced a new and once more unique Limited Edition timepiece: The Imperial St. Petersburg, which belongs to the Ulysse Nardin Marine Collection. This precious timepiece features a genuine hand-crafted oven-cured enamel dial with an applied gold double-headed Eagle (emblematic of St. Petersburg).
The Maxi Marine Chronometer is available in a Limited Edition of 30 pieces in platinum. The exhibition case back reveals the spectacular movement equipped with a 22 ct gold rotor.
It is officially certified self-winding movement (C.O.S.C) features the legendary oversized small seconds register and a large date display at 6 oâ€™clock. According to its elegant 43 mm case, it is individually numbered and equipped with a screw-crown and sapphire crystals. It is also water-resistant to 100 meters.
The Imperial St. Petersburg is presented in an elaborate multi-layer white translucent enamel Egg of the Tsars decorated with 4.25 carats of diamonds. The diamonds have been employed in recreating legendary symbols of St. Petersburg. The Admiralty Spire, the Rostral Columns, the Arch of the General Staff Building and the famous drawbridges that open at night to allow for passage of large vessels can be seen picked-out in diamonds. Ulysse Nardinâ€™s anchor serves to link the egg to the white marble base.
Both the Imperial St. Petersburg and its accompanying Egg of the Tsars are destined to become highly sought-after by collectors.
