The beautiful Ulysse Nardin El Toro Perpetual Calendar
The first Perpetual Calendar was launched back in 1996 by Ulysse Nardin and boasts a feature that allows backward and forward adjustment of all calendar functions with only one crown. The feature has quickly become a milestone in watchmaking, an innovative way to easily adjust the calendar.
What we got for you is the next direct descendent of the original Perpetual Calendar, reportedly named the El Toro. It boasts the traditional movement that sports an exclusive and extremely easy to set time zone system. In addition, the hour hand can be instantly moved to new local time with +/- pushers. The date, including year, month and day, occupies a large section of the dial, being closely synchronized with the movement of the hour hand.
Ulysse Nardin’s El Toro Perpetual Calendar is available in 18-carat rose gold case decked with a blue/silverized dial. An exquisite touch is represented by the pushers and bezel, which are made entirely of ceramic, painted in the same color scheme. A plus of reading easiness comes from the squeletted hands, increasing the visibility over the calendar.
The COSC-certified self-winding manufacture movement is framed by a sapphire case-back. Furthermore, the strapping is made of leather or rubber, encompassing a folding ceramic deployant clasp.
With a movement that features a total of 34 jewels, power reserve for around 45 hours and 100 meter water resistance, we could say this timepiece is as tough as how awesome it looks. Try to guess it price, though! We’ll leave you to it!
