Haute Time: Ulysse Nardin Executive Lady Watch

Mother’s Day has passed, but there’s always an excuse to buy something extra special for the woman in your life (or for yourself). Ulysse Nardin‘s sparkling Executive Lady watch is a perfect gift. Its men’s counterpart is the special Ulysse Nardin Executive Dual Time.

The newest Executive Lady sparkles with a diamond-set bezel (in place of last models’ snow-white ceramic), which creates an additional element of elegance. A mother-of-pearl dial, available in the palest hues like pink and blue, is protected by a sapphire crystal, and a 40 mm, stainless steel or 18-karat gold diamond-embellished case. The self-winding timepiece offers a 42-hour power reserve, along with 50 meters of water resistance.

If you remember, in 1996 the Ulysse Nardin introduced a patented Dual Time system, one of its many technological breakthroughs. With only one press of the ceramic pushers along the bezel, the hour hand instantly adjusts to a different time zone. This second timezone is located “digitally” on the left of the dial.

There is also a “big date” indicator and small seconds hand.  The white bezel is in ceramic, as are the pushers on the left of the case to change the second timezone. Handy for a jet setting woman executive, or indeed anyone who deals with markets in different territitories.  Approximately $18,700.
Beautiful, yet practical.
