Zheng He Treasure Boat - Limited Edition of 30 Pieces

Saluting the fascinating world of Chinese maritime history, Ulysse Nardin honors the Zheng He Treasure Boat in its new Classic Collection limited-edition enamel cloisonné timepiece.

The Chinese Treasure Boat (or Bao-Chuan) was a type of large wooden ship in the fleet of admiral Zheng He, the renowned explorer and mariner, who led seven voyages during the early 15th-century Ming Dynasty.

These massive ships were 137m long and 55m wide, with nine masts and four decks for up to 500 crew as well as cargo. While they were few in number, Zheng He's voyages covered extensive territory, traveling through Southeast Asia to faraway Africa and Arabia. With a fleet numbering hundreds of ships, and crews of around 30,000 men, his was easily the biggest maritime expedition of that time. Between 1405 and 1433, Zheng made a total of seven voyages, visiting 37 countries, an incredible achievement for the time.
