Here, the artist Jay Riggio captures a timepiece from Ulysse Nardin. In this weekly series, the men’s fashion editors of T invite creative personalities to put their own aesthetic spin on a new watch. The song “Strangers in the Night,” made famous in 1966 by Frank Sinatra (and covered since by everyone from Cake to Barry Manilow to Rodney Dangerfield) is one of those instantly recognizable tunes that conjures up feelings of romance and nostalgia. Its melody can now be called forth by the push of a button on Ulysse Nardin’s latest timepiece, which was first introduced at Baselworld. The Ulysse Nardin Stranger, limited to 99 pieces and available now, utilizes a mechanism not unlike that of a music box to chime the song — giving the wristwatch yet another new purpose beyond telling time.
Price on request, Ulysse Nardin, (212) 257-4920.
