Ulysse Nardin’s Latest Skeleton Watch Sparkles
The blingy addition to the range is an eye-catcher.
Ulysse Nardin’s history has been built in producing technical and functional timepieces preferred by boaties the world over. However, in 2019 the nameplate took a very different direction adding the Skeleton X to its range – as the name suggests a skeletonised watch.
And now for its latest, the manufacture has unveiled the Skeleton X Sparkling collection. The new, very blingy watches combine 149 brilliant-cut diamonds with a 42mm large case available in either titanium or 18-carat pink gold. The bezel is completely set with diamonds along with the hour markers while the ‘less is more’ approach to dial-making remains with the inner gizzards of the calibre on display.
The calibre in question is the UN-371 movement which sports a 96-hour power reserve and 50-metres of water resistance.
With a view of the timepiece, finishing is of the highest quality. The titanium piece arrives with a mother-of-pearl decoration on its barrel while the pink gold is finished with a black PVD treatment. Elsewhere there is hardly a visible component that hasn’t been treated.
All that’s left to do is choose which case and strap colour – the latter offered in either a black or white alligator leather strap.
This timepiece isn’t for a shrinking violet, with pricing set at around $48,490 for the titanium and $64,725 for pink gold.

With a new titanium case, it’s heavy on mechanics but light on the wrist.
