Ulysse Nardin Marine Annual Calendar Chronograph
With this timepiece, mechanical precision and high performance are enhanced by an elegantly streamlined Grand Feu dial.
The elegant beauty of this watch is accentuated by the sleek dial with its two-counter chronograph. This pared-down design was used in several historic chronographs from Ulysse Nardin, and it delivers all the force of the original Marine DNA. The month counter at 9 o’clock is combined with the small seconds. The chronograph 30-minute counter is at 3 o’clock, while a round date at 6 o’clock boast the quick set function, and is easily adjustable both forwards and backwards. Created by Ulysse Nardin enamel specialists Donzé Cadrans, the pale milky color of the enamel results from the process of this challenging art.
Marine characteristics are also evident in the historic cathedral hands, logo and thin Roman numeral indexes which are crafted in blue steel, as well as the heritage logo and the words quantième annuel, or annual calendar, above the date.
Driving this self-winding chronograph and annual calendar is the UN-153 movement with a power reserve of 52 hours. The stringent precision and quality requirements of the Ulysse Nardin certificate are met through precision silicium components like the silicium balance-spring and escapement, both manufactured in-house.
A worthy inheritor of the lineage established by earlier Marine Chronometer Manufacture (2012) and Marine Chronograph Manufacture (2013) timekeepers, the Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar bears the same classic detailing. This includes a ribbed bezel, a screw-crown guaranteeing water resistance to 100 m, and a generous stainless steel 43 mm diameter case. The blue alligator strap is an elegant match to the rubber on the crown.
