We love brand collaborations. But what happens when two of the unlikeliest brands pair up together? Ulysse Nardin has made some wonderful watches over the years. And now they’ve paired up with the high-end French audio firm, Devialet. The Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Phantom Limited-Edition Watch combines looks with impeccable technology that both the brands are known for.
This collaboration might seem unusual, but the Emmanuel Nardin, one of the founders of Devialet, is a direct descendant of the Ulysse Nardin family. You can be assured that this watch has the best audio features. The Phantom watch is named after Devialet’s flagship product. The compact watch actually has high definition speakers inside it, which can create sound up to 108 dB SPL. You can hear this wonderful chime every 30 minutes, which can be changed in the settings.
The watch has a 43mm diameter, with an anthracite dial and titanium case. It is 30 meters water resistant, and comes with a black alligator pin ardillon buckle strap. The vibratory wave design at the back of the dial is quite similar to the one Devialet has on its speakers.
This watch has Arabic numerals placed in a unique way, as a nod to the way a Naval compass is printed and a link to Ulysse Nardin’s nautical history.
The engineering behind this has never been seen before, and we look forward to hearing the impact of these brilliant brands coming together. Only 85 pieces of this watch will be released, at the price of 72,500 Swiss francs.
