The Ulysse Nardin Marine chronometer collection takes its inspiration from the historic and award winning marine chronometers produced by the reputed Swiss watch manufacture in its 171-year history. Now, the brand expands this collection by unveiling the Marine Annual Calendar Chronometer with a Grand Feu enamel dial.
As always at Ulysse Nardin, the pursuit of excellence in technical avant-garde has advanced in line with the search for timekeeping simplicity. In 2016, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Marine Collection, a Marine Chronograph incorporated an annual calendar for the first time.
The typical annual calendar, which is mechanically programmed for one year, can require up to thirty components. But watchmakers at Ulysse Nardin managed to streamline the system to only 7 elements. Simple to use, this piece is the epitome of innovation in the service of practicality, as it requires a date adjustment only once a year, in February. This achievement in pared-down functionality personifies the spirit of Ludwig Oechslin, the cre-ator for whom simplicity is an enduring philosophy. A philosophy which is upheld too in the UN-113 caliber, a Ulysse Nardin movement made entirely in-house, including the silicium balance-spring. It enables the calendar date-setting both forwards and backwards – yet another simplification.
