When the Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture Best Swiss Time Replica was initially released in 2015 it garnered attention for having the first in-house movement used in the Classic collection with the UN-320. However, I think the replica watch actually got interesting when they released the limited edition Classico Manufacture with a white “Grand Feu” enamel dial. The reason why this steel model got my attention was the very reasonable price tag of around $8,500. When you consider the fact that it’s an enamel dial Ulysse Nardin replica watch with an in-house movement, that price is downright fair and the brand deserves praise for that, especially when you look at overall luxury replica watch prices. Hopefully having taken the temperature of the global replica watch market and the woefully underserved “value” market, Ulysse Nardin followed up with this, the Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture “Grand Feu” blue enamel dial Ulysse Nardin replica watches sale .
Thankfully, the $8,800 price reflects contemporary consumer appreciation for a 40mm steel replica watch with techniques and in-house movements usually found in precious metal pieces that are often exponentially pricier.
The dark blue “Grand Feu” enamel dial is done in a guilloche pattern designed to resemble waves, a nod to Ulysse Nardin’s nautical identity. It lends the dial a shimmering quality that is really reminiscent of gently lapping waves in sunlight. I’m typically ambivalent towards seconds sub-dials but the concentric guilloche pattern adds another layer of texture to the dial. As for the hour markers, I have to admit to not being the biggest fan of Roman numerals, but I don’t really hold that against the brand since it’s really just a matter of taste. They just often look too old-fashioned for me. I do however like the fact that the feuille hands are lumed because this is the kind of dress replica watch one actually wears more than a few times a year.
