Equipped with the in house UN-153 caliber, the new Marine Annual Calendar Chronograph stainless steel model from the iconic collection of Ulysse Nardin marine watches boasts a stunning Grand Feu enamel dial in a lovely pale milky color. The eye catching dial was finished by Ulysse Nardin enamel specialists Donzé Cadrans by incorporating a traditional technique dating back to 17th century.
Its elegant beauty is accentuated by the sleek dial with its two-counter chronograph. This pared-down design was used in several historic chronographs from the Swiss watchmaker, and it delivers all the force of the original Marine DNA. The month counter at 9 o’clock is combined with the small seconds. The chronograph 30-minute counter is at 3 o’clock, while a round date at 6 o’clock boast the admirable quick set function, and is easily adjustable both forwards and backwards.
Marine characteristics are also evident in the historic cathedral hands, logo and thin Roman numeral indexes. In this edition, they are crafted in blue steel, providing smart contrast to the delicate white of the Grand Feu enamel dial. Also in blue, have the heritage logo and the addition of the words quantième annuel, or annual calendar, above the date.
Driving this self-winding chronograph and annual calendar is the UN-153 movement with a power reserve of 52 hours. The stringent precision and quality requirements of the Ulysse Nardin certificate are met through precision silicium components like the silicium balance-spring and escapement, both manufactured in-house.
A worthy inheritor of the lineage established by earlier Marine Chronometer Manufacture (2012) and Marine Chronograph Manufacture (2013) timekeepers, the Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar bears the same classic detailing. This includes a ribbed bezel, a screw-crown guaranteeing perfect water resistance to 100 m, and a generous 43 mm diameter case for excellent readability. The blue alligator strap is an elegant match to the rubber on the crown.
