  • Catalogue Essay

    A watch manufacture with strong maritime roots, Ulysse Nardin began making chronometers at the end of the 19th century. Today, the company’s most technically advanced chronometers are found on collectors’ wrists.

    The chronometer-rated movement inside the present watch is the UN-118, an in-house design featuring the company’s DIAMonSIL escapement. An automatic movement with power reserve indicator on the dial side, the UN-118 powers several limited editions of the flagship Marine Chronometer.

    The present example is part of the limited edition of 50 pieces made in 2015 and delivered to the UAE. Special features include a military green dial with gold applied Eastern Arabic numerals, and Eastern Arabic date wheel.

    The present watch is offered as a full set, with box and papers, including the original Chronometer & Performance certificate. A special watch, it is sure to set its owner apart.
