    With Ulysse Nardin presentation case in the style of the Egg of the Tsars with outer wooden box, certificate, C.O.S.C and product literature.

    The ST. BASIL RED SQUARE was created by Ulysse Nardin to honour the Kremlin on its 200th anniversary and is the most refined San Marco Cloisonné timepiece ever made.

    It takes the artist in Switzerland one full month to complete each enamel cloisonné dial. The blue multi layer Egg of the Tsars is designed by Ulysse Nardin and hand made by Andrei Ananov, Russian artist in St. Petersburg. The egg is decorated with diamond showing the Cathedral St. Basil and the gates and walls of the Kremlin.
