Ulysse Nardin celebrates its individualistic and artistic character with the new Classico Goat timepiece, an enamel champlevé creation. One of the world’s only watchmakers dedicated to this rare, centuries-old art, Ulysse Nardin presents a lifelike depiction of the goat, employing the intricate champlevé method. In this practice, cells are carved with a chisel directly on the watch dial and filled with enamel; the color palette is generated from different metallic oxides. The piece is then fired until the enamel melts. The result is a realistic, picturesque scene that is only made possible by the hands of masters. A limited-edition series, the Classico Goat features the self-winding, COSC-certified UN-815 movement, visible through its sapphire crystal exhibition window located on the case back. It has a power reserve of 42 hours.
Chopard once again honours Asian traditions, as the ancestral Japanese art of Urushi is enlisted in creating an L.U.C XP inspired by the “Year of the Goat” theme. The most artistic of the Chinese zodiac signs provides an ideal subject for a refined dial, the face of a watch driven by an ultra-thin L.U.C movement. The quintessence of Urushi, the ancestral Japanese lacquerwork, combines with the ultimate degree of Swiss horological refinement giving rise to the new L.U.C XP Urushi “Year of the Goat”. Chopard has now established a tradition of celebrating each new cycle of the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Wood Goat begins on February 19th 2015 and will end on February 7th 2016.

Two bridges screwed to the mainplate support the arbors of the fusée and barrel, giving the watch the look of a late nineteenth century architectural accomplishment. The Zenith high-frequency manual-wind El Primero 4810 movement is seen on the lower right-hand side of the dial with a power reserve display and the inscriptions “Force constante” and “High frequency.” 150 will be made.
