Ulysse Nardin - Marine Tourbillon Grand Feu

Ulysse Nardin Marine Tourbillon Grand Feu

Ulysse Nardin welcomes a new timepiece in the Marine collection, the Marine Tourbillon Grand Feu watch.

The marine world has been an integral part of Ulysse Nardin’s history since 1846, when young Ulysse Nardin created the first coveted marine deck chronometers. These precision navigational instruments, prized by mariners and navies the world over, were valued for their accuracy. These early timepieces were the precursors of the Ulysse Nardin Marine collections to come, like this new Marine Tourbillon. This timepiece unites the three fundamuntals so essential to Ulysse Nardin’s identity: in-house production, technical avant-garde and rare artistry.

The self-winding UN-128 caliber, produced at Le Locle in Switzerland, is entirely new. Expressing the brand’s development and continued independence in the movements manufacture, it harnesses the properties of silicium technology, with a 60-hour power reserve and a flying tourbillon. From its position at 6 o’clock, the tourbillon is the central focus of this highly desirable timepiece and celebrates the watchmaker’s continued pursuit of the technical cutting-edge.

Designed to counteract the negative effects of gravity on the accuracy of a movement, it is one of the finest achievements in mechanical watchmaking. And in this particular high-precision timepiece, the cage, wheels, screws and hairspring of the flying tourbillon are produced entirely in-house by Ulysse Nardin.

The power reserve has always been a historically important aspect of the Marine Collection, as it harks back to a time when sailors relied on the power of their precision navigational instruments to determine their position at sea. With its 60-hour power reserve, the Marine Tourbillon proves itself a reliable partner to all those who require reliable accuracy over time.

 The enduring style of the Marine Tourbillon recalls of the characteristic design of those heritage marine time-keepers. At its heart, a Grand Feu white enamel dial, with its lovely pale milky color, is a direct result of the process of this challenging art. Dating back to the 17th century, the Grand Feu enamel gets its name from the incredible heat required to fuse the enamel powder in a kiln. 

Complementing the classic elegance of the Grand Feu dial, are the elegant hands and roman numerals that instantly mark the timepiece as belonging to the Marine Collection. They indicate hours and minutes, while the indicator at 12 o’clock shows time remaining on the 60-hour power reserve. A 43 mm stainless steel case with beveled edges combines sophisticated design and pure practicality. The crown is designed for easy handling, complete with a rubber notch for comfortable winding, and water resistance to 100 m.
