Ulysse Nardin's Marine 1846 Watch Blends Artistic Panache and Technology
Ulysse Nardin is a brand that has been almost synonymous with the maritime world since its inception in 1846, when merchant captains around the world sought out the brand's pocket chronometers for use at sea. Therefore, creating marine chronometers in its workshops in Le Locle, Switzerland, is something this brand is particularly good at. The newest Marine 1846 — honoring the year of its founding — is a perfect example. Designed to appeal to watch lovers who appreciate performance and elegance, the watch is a deft blend of artistic panache (thanks to the in-house-made Grand Feu enamel dial) and technology (thanks to the brand's pioneering efforts in high-tech materials).
The 41mm self-winding UN-118 Chronometer movement — produced in-house by the Swiss watchmaker — is equipped with an escapement made of patented DIAMonSil, and a patented inertial balance wheel with Silicium hairspring. The COSC-certified chronometer watch offers 60 hours of power reserve and features forward and backward quick-set date. Water resistant to 100 meters, the watch possesses all of the key features expected in this line: a fluted bezel, Roman numerals and enamel dial. The case back features a listing of all of the gold medals won by Ulysse Nardin. We invite you in any time to see the wonderful marine watches by this top-notch Swiss brand.
