Ludwig Oechslin, anthropologist, scientist, university professor and master watchmaker all in one, is known for his knack of providing the most practical solutions for the most complex ideas with a genius stroke of apparent simplicity. He successfully developed Ulysse Nardin’s Trilogy of Time: the Astrolabium Galileo Galilei, Planetarium Copernicus and Tellurium Johannes Kepler.
2001 witnessed the launch of the Freak: poetry in watchmaking the latest creation by Ludwig Oechslin.
For Ulysse Nardin’s 150th anniversary, the Master of Innovation created the Perpetual Ludwig. The only perpetual calendar in watch history to allow forwards and backwards adjustments of all calendar displays.
The latest masterpiece is the Genghis Khan - the first ever Westminster Carillon Tourbillon Jaquemarts Minute repeater.
