The Dangerously Designed Xplosion on Your Wrist

With the weather heating up and temperatures rising, Ulysse Nardin recently introduced the Skeleton X Mag-ma, an explosive, carbon-fiber tour-de-force that is the latest proof of the Swiss manufacture’s unequalled technical virtuosity.

Made from a seismic combination of ultra-light carbon fiber and red, marbled epoxy resin each Skeleton X Magma is unique. Stripped down to its essential components like a high-end racecar, it is ultra-light, scratch-resistant and streamlined. With its magnificent technical features fully exposed, it leaves nothing to the imagination.

This a watch for the endless, warm summer days that are the reward for a years’ investments, hard work, and long office hours. The beach in St. Tropez beckons; the Skeleton X Magma on your wrist, the valet moors your boat. Golden light on the horizon, a glass in your hand, this is the moment to savor your success. The dynamic design is your calling card; the “X” formed by four indexes is centered by a rectangle, anchored by Roman numerals on each side. The combination of red and black is mesmerizing and energizing. A black leather strap with black stitching completes the look.

The Skeleton X Magma has been re-sized for action to a compact 43mm. Masculine, angular and lava red, the manual-winding movement has 4-day power reserve to guarantee that no far how off the grid you choose to be, your timepiece will keep you on track.

Accessibly priced, each Skeleton X Magma is fitted with the UN-371 movement, a 3 Hz Silicium balance wheel and Silicium minuterie gear train. Red Roman numerals mark the three and nine o’clock positions and the index and hands are equipped with red Superluminova for nocturnal activity.

Volcanic, vigorous and virile, Ulysse Nardin’s Skeleton X Magma is a force of nature, the watch of style, action and elegance.

About Ulysse Nardin – Manufacture of Freedom. Ulysse Nardin is the Pioneering Manufacture inspired by the sea and delivering innovative timepieces to free spirits. Founded by Mr. Ulysse Nardin in 1846 and a proud member of the global luxury group Kering since November 2014, Ulysse Nar-din has written some of the fin-est chapters in the history of Haute Horlogerie. The company’s earliest renown came from its links to the nautical world: its marine chronometers are among the most reliable ever made, still sought by collectors around the world. A pioneer of cutting-edge technologies and the innovative use of materials like silicon, the brand is one of the few with the in-house expertise to produce its own high-precision components and movements. This exceptional level of watchmaking excellence has earned Ulysse Nardin membership in the most exclusive circle of Swiss watchmaking, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie. Today, from its sites in Le Locle and La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, the brand’s continuing quest for horological perfection cen-ters around five collec-tions: The Marine, the Diver, the Classico, the Executive and the Freak. In 2019, Ulys-se Nardin introduces the X-factor into watchmaking.
