Ulysse Nardin's Caprice Butterfly

This is something new from Ulysse Nardin - the Caprice Butterfly

353 3.8 carat diamonds surround the white gold case.  The dial itself is a work of art - Champlev√© Enamel is the medium to display the butterfly.  This is a painstaking technique where the metal surface of the dial is "dimpled", creating spaces to deposit the moist powdered enamel.  The dial is then fired, and gently finished.

This is not a mass produced trinket!  The new Caprice Butterfly timepiece is presented as a limited-edition collection of 28 pieces.
