Lot Essay

This year, Ulysse Nardin has closely interlinked the development of its concept watch with the very cause supported by Only Watch: research into neurodegenerative diseases, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

"The exoskeleton theme was a unanimous decision. We were determined to establish a strong link between the timepiece and its purpose. This is a cause close to our hearts and we wanted to express that through the Exo-Skeleton X." said Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Ulysse Nardin.

Ulysse Nardin’s Exo-Skeleton X sports a carapace giving it a bionic look and accentuating its ergonomic design. The fl exible double blade is attached with two screws, one on the case and the other on the lug, enhancing the fl exibility of the piece by allowing some movement between the lug bar and the case.


COLLABORATION
REHAssist, a research group from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology EPFL, affi liated with the Biorobotics and the Translational Neural Engineering labs has developed the world's best-adapted exoskeleton for people with degenerative muscular diseases: Autonomyo. This orthotic tool, when worn, imitates the human skeleton and detects the intended movement, allowing the wearer to walk. As part of its support for the 2019 Only Watch charity auction, Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin designed the Exo-Skeleton X. This skeleton watch is completed by an "exoskeleton" formed from four fl exible blades fi xed to the case middle to drastically improve comfort of wear.
