In life we often needlessly complicate the simple. However, Ludwig Oechslin, Master Watchmaker, was adept at simplifying the complicated. He was responsible for creating Ulysse Nardin’s first perpetual calendar in 1996; a timepiece which refined the complication to the essential, removing the extraneous.
This new model, the Classic Perpetual Ludwig, pays tribute to Mr Oechslin, taking the typically über-complex perpetual calendar complication and making it appear comparatively simple to use.
Unlike most perpetual calendars there are no correctors to be found on the caseband of this new timepiece. Indeed, all adjustments are performed via the crown. The large date display can be adjusted both forwards or backwards without fear of damaging the movement.
