  • Catalogue Essay

    Ulysse Nardin is a widely acclaimed Swiss watch manufacturer founded in 1846, recognized for their chronometers during the early to mid 20th century.

    The present example is housed in a beautiful yellow gold cushion shaped case, typically seen in watches from the 1920s through the 1940s. The single button feature of the chronograph is found at 2 o’clock, and engages all chronograph functions, including start, stop, and reset. The dial features a blue printed tachometer scale along the outer chapter ring of the dial.

    The watch is fitted with a rice grain yellow gold bracelet, giving it both an elegant and sophisticated look. Well preserved and in overall great condition, the watch retains strong definition throughout the case and lugs.
