Jade is the flagship timepiece in the Ulysse Nardin collection for ladies and marks a first in Ulysse Nardin history. Never before has Ulysse Nardin designed and produced an in-house movement exclusively for a ladies collection, demonstrating the manufacturer’s commitment to its female clientele. Unique in its concept, it is designed and built in such a way that it does not call for pushing or pulling of the crown to set the date and time, meaning no more damage to the ladies’ manicure. Chai Schnyder, Chairwoman of Ulysse Nardin, requested such a movement from her late husband Rolf Schnyder (then President and CEO of Ulysse Nardin) 12 years ago. Chairwoman Schnyder feels that ladies would cheer such a development, as manicures take a long time to be properly done, and it is an annoyance if even a small part of the beautiful set of a manicure is chipped or broken while trying to pull out the crown.
