Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur is a new generation chronometer, made for the modern era. Named for the small, fast ships of that earlier era, whose agility ensured they easily out manoeuvred bigger ships; this is a timepiece for contemporary explorers. A lighter, thinner version of the iconic Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer, the Marine Torpilleur is made for young luxury watch enthusiasts.
Like its inspiration, the Marine Chronometer, the Torpilleur is powered by the self-winding in-house UN-118 movement, and features the same 60-hour power reserve and proprietary Silicium anchor escapement. The Marine Torpilleur also comes C.O.S.C-certified, and meets the equally stringent standards that allow it to proudly bear the Ulysse Nardin Performance Certificate.
Outstanding design is visible on the dial too, where the iconic features of the Marine collection are in evidence: the Roman numeral indexes, and the emblematic logo with its flash of red in “1846”. While the graceful hands possess the instantly recognizable shape of a Marine timepiece, they too are redesigned for the Marine Torpilleur. The small seconds at 6 o’clock encircles the date window, while the 60-hour power reserve indicator is at 12 o’clock.
The new Marine Torpilleur is available in three different models, and two different dials, in stainless steel and 18 kt rose gold.
