Ulysse Nardin El Toro - A powerful Timepiece for everyday use.

Ulysse Nardin El ToroUlysse Nardin El Toro back

This high tech perpetual calendar with a dual time function and the legendary in-house developed and manufactured self-winding movement is the most consumer friendly perpetual calendar ever produced and has passed the tests of time.

The striking aesthetic of El Toro combines modern materials with a timeless dial design that inspired its name.

The bezel and pushers are made in ceramic. The squeletted hands permit easy reading of all calendar functions and the sapphire caseback allows to observe the mechanics of time.

• The only perpetual calendar that adjusts forward and backward in seconds over the quick corrector position of a single crown, even in the year 2100.

• The hour hand is adjusted instantly to a new local time with pushers (+) or (-) without taking the watch off the wrist or interfering with its time keeping.

• The arrow keeps track of one’s home or reference time.

• The oversized date, the day, the month and the year change instantly forward or backward when the hour hand is moved to a new local time across the dateline with pushers (+) or (-).

• The white gold rotor ensures that the watch is automatically wound with a power reserve of 45 hours.
