Confident and dynamic, the rooster rules the roost with hard work and innate talent. Very little escapes the pow-ers of perception of this highly observant creature, renowned for his sociable, gregarious nature. In keeping with his pride of place on this precision Classico, the rooster is also widely appreciated for his punctual timekeeping! Ulysse Nardin celebrates his energetic panache with the “Year of the Rooster” timepiece, the most recent addition to the Classico Collection.

In this classical depiction, the artist has perfectly captured the rooster’s natural energy. It is the centuries-old champlevé method of enameling that brings the artist’s sketch to life. A rare art form and one mastered by very few, the champlevé technique involves the carving of cells with a chisel directly on the dial, which are then filled with enamel. Its colors come from the careful blending of different metallic oxides. The piece is then fired until the enamel melts.

For over 25 years, Ulysse Nardin has been bringing this artistry to its dials, and is in fact one of the only watch-makers devoted to the centuries-old craft. It is mastered in-house at Donzé Cadrans, a member of the Ulysse Nardin group of companies.
