Ulysse Nardin Quadrato Dual Time Perpetual Luxury Watch Review

https://www.thewatchbox.com/watches/ulysse-nardin If more is better, most is best. The 18-karat yellow gold Ulysse Nardin Quadrato Dual Time Perpetual calendar is a luxury wristwatch that has it all: complications, superb ergonomics, and audacious design. Launched in 2005 and refined to its current form in 2008, the Quadrato is an enduring off-beat classic within the Ulysse Nardin constellation of complications. With a dual-time complication, a perpetual calendar, a "grand" double-digit date, and automatic winding, the Quadrato Dual Time Perpetual is a mechanical monster. But this 42mm wide gold bruiser is a benign beast that excels in user-friendly interface. Automatic winding and a 48-hour power reserve ensures that the in-house UN-32 caliber is ever-ready for your daily grind. A simple push of the opposing hour triggers moves the central hour hand in one-hour increments. The Ludwig Oechslin-designed perpetual calendar complication can be driven entirely from the crown. Even better, this is the only perpetual calendar on the market that can be set forward AND backward with no hazard to the movement. Accidentally set the watch to the next month? No problem with the Ulysse Nardin Quadrato Dual Time Perpetual; simply "roll back the clock" to the correct date. Fun fact: Ulysse Nardin's perpetual calendar is one of an elite few such mechanisms that can cope with the year 2100 exception to the Gregorian Calendar's leap year patter. While the UN's 60mm lug-to-lug span and immense gold heft might intimidate the slight-of-wrist, it's actually an ergonomic soul-mate for almost any forearm. The superb case design incorporates abundant camber (arching) and sharply curved lugs that dive down and around the wrist for a secure interface between man and machine. Even wrists as small as 15cm in circumference will be able to wear the Ulysse Nardin Quadrato with confidence and style. A superb dual-deployant clasp feels as good on the wrist as it looks in the hand. All polished and sculpted elements speak to Ulysse Nardin's uncompromising standards for design and finish.
