  • Catalogue Essay

    Established in 1846, Ulysse Nardin is a widely acclaimed Swiss watch manufacturer that received its recognition for its precision chronometers in the mid-twentieth century. In particular, aficionados around the globe look for its large vintage chronograph wristwatches, especially the reference 7536-2 such as the present example.

    The case design, dial configuration with its subsidiary dials, and hour markers of this watch are reminiscent of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. The allure of this execution is shown in its finer details, such as its heavy sculptured lugs, white chronograph hand, applied Ulysse Nardin logo and hour markers.

    Absolutely flawless in all its graphics, the black background acquired an awe-inspiring milk chocolate tone, giving the wristwatch an almost climactic appearance. Already a very rare reference, hardly ever does such outstanding example grace the market, and there is no telling when another timepiece will appear in the public sphere.
