Double Time

A brand best known for technical innovations, Ulysse Nardin flaunts a fresh sense of style with its Executive Dual Time, the latest addition to the Dual Time range. With a slick ceramic bezel and pushers and a sleek black dial appointed with stylized Roman numerals and chiseled hands, the 43mm timepiece is powered by the brand’s patented Dual Time system. With plus and minus pushers at 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock, the mechanism allows you easily and instantly to adjust the hour hand back and forth to local time, while keeping track of your home time in the window at 9 o’clock. For globetrotting executives—such as Ulysse Nardin’s owner Rolf Schnyder, who divides his time between homes in Malaysia and Switzerland—perhaps no other watchmaking complication is as useful and practical. And with its au courant aesthetic, the Executive Dual Time ($8,000 in stainless steel; $18,900 for a rose gold model with a rubber straps; and $20,700 for a rose gold style with a leather strap and gold deployment buckle) delivers form and function in equal measure.
