Ulysse Nardin has once again utilized the expertise of watchmaker Ludwig Oechslin—the mind behind the iconic Trilogy of Time astronomical timepieces —  to launch an entirely new family of watches with innovative moon-phase complications called Classico Luna. This Ulysse Nardin Classico Luna Lady 8293-123 has a stainless steel case in 35 mm still nicely preserved with diamond set bezel and lugs that give to the whole watch a more precious look. Its white mother-of-pearl dial is divided in two circles, the inner one has a sunburst decoration, while the outer one has a plain surface with applied brilliant cut diamonds and beads indexes. The watch’s most interesting feature is, of course, the moon-phase complication, which is displayed in a small, circular aperture that rotates around the center of the dial, once every 12 hours, depicting the angle of illumination of the moon as it does so. The hour hand represents the sun, the second hand of the moon and the center of the earth. The watch is powered by the self-winding caliber UN-829 with power reserve of 42 hours. With a date aperture at 6 o’clock, this watch is also sold with its original warranty.
