An Explosive Lava Red Carbon Fibre Skeleton Watch Unveiled at Cannes Film Festival

Xplosion on your wrist. Ulysse Nardin has chosen the 2019 Cannes Film Festival as the ideal location to introduce the Skeleton X Magma, an Xplosive carbon-fibre tour-de-force. With the weather heating up and temperatures rising, the timing is perfect for the revealing of UN’s newest proof of unequalled technical virtuosity.

A supernova in its own right, the Skeleton Magma X has easily found its place on the red carpet among the glittering stars of the silver screen. Made from a seismic combination of ultra-light carbon fibre and red, marbled epoxy resin each Skeleton X Magma is unique. Stripped down to its essential components like a high-end race car, it is ultra-light and streamlined. With its magnificent technical features fully exposed, it leaves nothing to the imagination.

This is a watch for the endless, warm summer days that are the reward for a year’s investments, hard work, and long office hours. The Croisette in Cannes 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 slip off your shoes, dig your toes into the warm sand and savour your success. The dynamic design is your calling card; the “X” formed by four indexes is centred by a rectangle, anchored by Roman numerals on each side. The combination of red and black is mesmerising and energising. A black leather strap with black stitching completes the look.

The Skeleton X Magma is 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 escapement wheel and anchor. Red Roman numerals mark the three and nine o’clock positions and the hands are equipped with grey Superluminova for nocturnal activity.

Volcanic, vigorous and virile, Ulysse Nardin’s Skeleton X Magma is a force of nature, the watch of summer style, action and elegance. The Cannes Film Festival and the Skeleton X Magma are a perfect partnership of innovation, ingenuity and inspiration. Stand up and stand out!
