Ulysse Nardin has released its limited edition Hourstriker Horse timepiece, an homage to the role that the extraordinary beasts have played in our history. As mankind's faithful companion through all forms of work, from simple farming to historic wars, the horse has become a symbol of tradition, none more so than in the Arabian culture.

The Hourstriker Horse watch is as wondrous as the animal it is based upon; a self-winding masterpiece with a 42mm rose gold or platinum case and a sapphire crystal back. Its pièce de résistance though is undoubtedly the Jacquemarts, the mechanical automation that sits atop the black onyx dial. 

Ulysse Nardin's Hourstriker Horse

The complex Jacquemarts movement on the Hourstriker Horse can be set to play every hour or half hour and features two horses in action, showing the full extent of its grace while in motion.

The Ulysse Nardin Hourstriker Horse is limited to only 28 pieces. The rose gold edition is priced at Dhs360,000 while the platinum edition is priced at Dhs430,000. For more information, visit Ulysse Nardin.
