The history of watchmaking is punctuated by fascinating mechanical inventions, patiently acquired expertise, and technological triumphs. None of these discoveries and achievements would have taken place without the passion and genius of individual men and women. Over the centuries, as if illuminated by the same flame and driven by the same passion, these individuals have continuously furthered the development and growth of one of the most important sciences of all times, and the source of many others. This is the story of Ulysse Nardin, a continuous thread through time, woven by the interactions – both philosophical and physical – between a handful of exceptional individuals. From 1846 to the present day, from the founder to the current directors, they have turned a name – an independent and internationally renowned Swiss watchmaker – into one of the most dynamic and innovative brands in existence.
