The new Marine Chronograph Manufacture from Ulysse Nardin uses technologies pioneered by the brand.
The timepiece bears all the hallmarks of marine instruments, including a generously sized case with a 43mm diameter, a fluted bezel, a screw-locked crown for water resistance and solid lugs to ensure excellent stability on the wrist. The watch’s dial was made by the Donzé Cadrans workshops, acquired by the Ulysse Nardin company in 2011, and is an homage to the founder’s designs.
Another proud achievement for Ulysse Nardin is found in the automatic chronograph calibre UN-150. With a 48-hour power reserve, it displays the hours, minutes, small seconds at 9 o’clock, a date aperture at 4.30, and a chronograph showing the seconds in the centre, as well as a minute counter at 3 o’clock and an hour counter at 6 o’clock. It is also made in-house by Ulysse Nardin, which has endowed it with its silicon escapement that beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour, a mark of extreme precision.
