Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur
A lighter and thinner version of the iconic Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer, the Marine Torpilleur is made for a young, less formal age.
In the 19th century, when explorers roamed the oceans, the pocket chronometer was the captain’s watch, a mark of his rank both on shore and off. The manufacture’s pocket chronometers were among the most coveted, prized by naval officers and merchant captains the world over. That vibrant marine history led to the creation of the iconic Marine Chronometer, the ultimate expression of technical performance and beautiful design.
Now comes a new generation chronometer, made for the modern era: the Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur. Named for the small, fast ships of that earlier era, whose agility ensured they easily outmaneuvered bigger ships, this is a timepiece for contemporary explorers.
Like its inspiration, the Marine Chronometer, the Torpilleur is powered by the self-winding in-house UN-118 movement, and features the same 60-hour power reserve and proprietary Silicium anchor escapement. This model also comes C.O.S.C-certified, and meets the equally stringent standards that allow it to proudly bear the Ulysse Nardin Performance Certificate.
Outstanding design is visible on the dial too, where the iconic features of the Marine collection are in evidence: the Roman numeral indexes, and the emblematic logo with its flash of red in “1846”. While the graceful hands possess the instantly recognizable shape of a Marine timepiece, they too are redesigned for the Marine Torpilleur. The small seconds at 6 o’clock encircles the date window, while the 60-hour power reserve indicator is at 12 o’clock.
The Marine Torpilleur is launched in three different models in stainless steel and 18 kt rose gold, and with two different dials.
