  • Catalogue Essay

    While Ulysse Nardin started making marine chronometers in 1846, it is the brand’s amazing variety of chronograph designs from the 1930s-1950s that really stand out in terms of design and flair.

    The present chronograph from the 1940s stands out thanks to its large extremely well preserved 37mm case with facetted mobile lugs and beautiful dial featuring a black tachymeter scale and grey telemeter scale.
    The dial is further signed Türler Bern-Zürich, Türler is a Swiss-based, family-owned, jewelry and watch retailer founded in 1883 selling some of the most prestigious watch brands. The caseback is engraved with the initials AA in a very elegant Art Deco style.
