This year, Ulysse Nardin presents a groundbreaking regatta chronograph equipped with a patented sweep countdown timer that can be set from 1 to 10 minutes.
Since 1846, Ulysse Nardin has been forging ahead with its sights set firmly on new horizons of creativity, ingenuity and precision. With this new regatta chronograph, created in partnership with the Swedish Artemis Racing team, the Le Locle watchmaker has again demonstrated its technical expertise and pioneering spirit. An innovative movement, crafted in-house, includes an original and intuitive bi-directional countdown timer for which a pa-tent has been filed. A practical and reliable timepiece, this Regatta watch dressed in a sturdy case can withstand the gruelling conditions of the America’s Cup.
The result of many months of development – based on the renowned manufacture chronograph caliber UN-153, the new caliber UN-155 features performance, ease of use and perfectly designed display brightness. The ample 3-day power reserve, the two-way seconds hand that can be stopped to adjust the hour and the bi-directional date change compliment its remarkable practicality.
Two dial variations are offered: the first features an ocean blue with bursts of signature Artemis Racing yellow and the second vivid sea foam. Both have a yellow countdown register punctuated by a sweep hand, Arabic numerals, indexes, appliqué Roman numerals glided over central lumines-cent hands, a yellow-tipped seconds hand and 12-hour and 60-minute subdial with the date displayed in a round aperture at the 6 o’clock position.
