Ulysse Nardin welcomes two stunningly elegant new models to its Marine Chronometer Manufacture family.
Powering these new Marine Chronometers is the UN-118 caliber, manufactured entirely in-house. With its heart of Silicium and DIAMonSIL, advanced materials pioneered by Ulysse Nardin in the first, 2011 version of the Caliber UN-118, the movement represents a giant step forward in the quest for absolute precision in mechanical timekeeping. It brings together the technological advancement of an anchor escapement in DIAMonSil with Ulysse Nardin's own oscillator and patented hairspring. The movement delivers running time up to 60 hours when fully wound.
Like every member of the Marine Chronometer family, the design of the dial is inspired by the early Ulysse Nardin chronometers. It features a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock and small seconds at 6 o'clock, positioned next to the date window. The date can be adjusted either backward or forward. Distinctive roman numerals, cathedral hands and a fluted bezel on the stainless steel case mark it unmistakably as a Marine Chronometer. An impressive combination of sophistication and practicality, the timepiece features a crown designed for easy handling, complete with a rubber notch for comfortable winding.
Water-resistant to 200 meters, this watch also carries COSC chronometer certification and the Ulysse Nardin Certificate of performance.
