WEFOUNDUlysse Nardin History in Time (Watch Collection 2008 - 2009. Mechanical Chronometers and other Rare Timepieces)


The marine world is no stranger to the folks over at Ulysse Nardin. Their latest redesign of the Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver showcases all the traditional qualities of a diving watch but with modern watchmaking techniques. Their latest reimagining makes the already popular Marine Diver an even bigger success through the use of not just a highly reliable diving mechanism, but also in its ability to be a sports watch capable of being worn on any occasion.

Everything about the new Marine Diver gives you a sense of Ulysse Nardin’s history with diving watches from their anchor emblem displayed at 2 o’clock, to the black and blue dial decorated in a wave like motif that evokes the depths of the ocean. The same can be seen on the bezel and the solid caseback that shows off an engraving of a boat surrounded by an inscription reading “Conquer the ocean”.

They have also incorporated various key elements for any divers watch including a unidirectional rotating bezel, large hour-markers and hands with white luminescent coating and a red stripe meaning you will never have a problem reading the time regardless of whether you are in the depths of the ocean or in a board meeting. The small seconds function at 6 o’clock is also oversized making sure that you are awake of everything going on with the watch without any trouble.

You might think this acts in defiance of the slow-moving and buttoned up Swiss luxury industry, but that isn't in fact true. Erotica has a centuries-long history in the watch wold, though often tucked away. Ulysse Nardin put it front and center, on the aforementioned pedestal, with their Classic Voyeur automaton minute repeater. And as for the Hirsts and the hashtag, they allude to the brand's latest piece in their Freak Collection . More than items with shock value, they feature real technical merit.

The diameter, despite all complicated components within, maxes out at a reasonable 42mm. The couples have been crafted from, depending on model type, either 18-carat pink gold or white gold and fall on an anthracite grey dial, depicting an engraved Louis XIV salon detailed down to the canapé and carpet. It's really quite beautiful, and carries an elegance peppered with comedy. It's not freaky, but it's sure to startle the prudish.

Ulysse Nardin intends to limit Classic Voyeur production to three-dozen, with pink gold and platinum models retailing for $295,000 and a platinum "Princess" edition with 60 baguette diamonds reaching $373,000.

M arine chronometers have always been a strong part of Ulysse Nardin 's brand identity. Throughout their 152-year history in Le Locale, Switzerland, the brand has supplied accurate marine chronometers to over fifty of the world's navies. For the upcoming SIHH 2018, Ulysse Nardin have announced three new watches in the marine chronometer style: the Classico Manufacture Grand Feu, the Marine Tourbillon Blue Grand Feu, and perhaps the most interesting model of the lineup, the Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Military limited edition.

The Classico Manufacture Grand Feu is available in two variants, a black enamel dial with white Roman numerals and the more traditional white enamel dial with black Roman numerals. Both offer strong legibility thanks to the high degree of contrast, and are designed in a classic marine chronometer style with railroad minute track, small seconds sub-dial at 6 o'clock, and broad leaf-shaped hands. A date indicator is tucked away at 6 o'clock within the small seconds sub-dial.

The standout feature of the Classico Manufacture Grand Feu is that enamel dial. These dials are crafted at Donzé Cadrans, a specialist luxury watch dial enameller. Donzé Cadrans was founded in 1972 by Master Enameller Francis Donzé in Le Locle, Switzerland, and was acquired by Ulysse Nardin in late 2011. The process for producing a Grand Feu enamel dial requires a high degree of specialized skill, and is only possible from a dedicated facility such as Donzé Cadrans. aBlogToWatch contributor Zach Piña describes this process very well when discussing the Ulysse Nardin Classico Manufacture 170th Anniversary Limited Edition here .

Continuing to push back the limits in Haute Horlogerie, from January 2017 Ulysse Nardin will offer a 5-year warranty on its mechanical timepieces.
