When Ulysse Nardin drops a new watch collection, you can expect it to shatter all expectations of what watchmaking can achieve. The Executive Tourbillon \u201cFree Wheel\u201d is no exception. And it seemingly defies gravity along the way.\r\n\r\nAvailable in an elegant white or rose gold, The Executive Tourbillon features new movement technology along with an innovative box-domed sapphire glass housing and a 7-day power reserve indicator at four o\u2019clock.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe modern-sized 44mm dial for the 18ct rose gold version is in dark stone, carved from a slab of slate. The 18ct white gold version is built on a sleek black honeycomb grid. The tourbillon bridges, \u2018skeletonised\u2019 components, hour and minute indicators and gorgeous gear trains all look like they\u2019re floating in air.\r\n\r\nThe sapphire glass housing the \u2018flying\u2019 elements is complex; painstakingly polished for a standout finish. The caseback is in sapphire, except there\u2019s nothing to see inside, as all of the components are visible on the dial side. The mechanical movement powering this beauty replaces the traditional Swiss lever escapement system and uses Ulysse Nardin\u2019s signature low-friction silicium instead of metal or synthetic rubies. This watch is also water resistant to 30m.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe strap is \u201ccarbon leather\u2019 in matte alligator, exceptionally soft and silky to the touch.\r\n\r\nUnlike other select Ulysse Nardin watches, the Executive Tourbillon \u201cFree Wheel\u201d is not a limited edition, but a full-run production launch. It\u2019s visually stunning. The perfect timepiece for those who take delight in the leading edge of engineering and aesthetics.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
