Man’s best friend on a Grand Feu enamel dial. A bit too much? Well the Ulysse Nardin Classico Dog will not win any subtlety awards, but as an example of craftsmanship; it succeeds in every way.

The Ulysse Nardin Classico Dog is a tribute to the Year of the Dog, just as the Vacheron Constantin Métiers D’Art Year of the Dog. Beginning in the Chinese New Year, starting in February 2018. The image of the dog on the Grand Feu dial is made through the centuries old technique of enameling.

The Ulysse Nardin Classico Dog is limited to 88 pieces

Grand Feu, named for the incredible heat required to fuse the enamel, is combined with Champlevé technique. This involves the carving of cells with a chisel directly on the dial, which are then filled with different colored enamels. The final step, which is also the most delicate, consists of enriching the motif by chiseling all the metal parts on the surface.

The amount of people that can achieve this decorative technique are small. But Ulysse Nardin has this know-how in-house thanks to their people at Donzé Cadrans, a member of the Ulysse Nardin group of companies.

The Classico Dog is powered by the COSC-certified UN-815 movement. It has a 42-hour power-reserve and a waterproofness of 50 meters. The manufacture movement is housed in a 40-millimeter 18-carat rose gold case. The Ulysse Nardin Classico Dog comes on a dark blue alligator leather strap and is limited to 88 pieces.
