UlysseNardin_HannibalMinuteUlysse Nardin brings history to life with a retelling of Hannibal’s epic march over the Pyrenees and the Alps by elephant. Its latest creation, Répétition Minutes Hannibal Westminster Carillon Tourbillon Jaquemarts, portrays Hannibal on horseback, surrounded by his loyal warriors riding elephants. All these characters have been transformed into jacks and are sculpted in white gold, as are the landscape and mountains in the background. The entire scene is set on a dial in Alpine granite. These animated figures move in time to the four chimes that sound the minutes, quarters, hours and any other combination set by the wearer. The spinning tourbillon at 6 o’clock adds a final flourish to this exceptional timepiece, which is produced as a 30-piece limited series.
