This watch is accompanied by an Ulysse Nardin presentation box with outer packaging, blank Certificate and manual.

The ingenious and unusual design of the 7-Day Carrousel Tourbillon by Dr. Ludwig Oechslin, a scientist, inventor, historian and watch-maker, allows the owner to set and wind the watch without a crown and to read the time without traditional hands. The watch can run for seven days while the movement rotates once an hour without the need for lubrication.
