Back in the 19th century, pocket chronographs were not only a captain’s tool, but a status display worn ashore and offshore. Ulysse Nardin’s pocket chronographs are the most sought after. Popular with naval officers and merchant captains, the Marine Chronometer was born and is one of their most iconic collections to date.
As the role of the captain has changed, so has the role of the watchmaker. Still, Ulysse Nardin never strayed too far from their starting point. Their latest generation of chronometers: the Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur, is simply a modern timepiece for those who wish to take control of their own destiny. Sound like someone you might know? I am looking at you!
what is inside
Named after earlier smaller, more agile vessels, the Marine Torpilleur is a lighter, thinner version of Ulysse Nardin’s iconic marine chronometer. Like its inspiration, the Marine Torpilleur is powered by an in-house self-winding UN-118 movement, as well as the same 60-hour power reserve and proprietary silicon anchor escapement. In addition, it is COSC certified (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), which gives it the official Chronometer certification seal, and a Ulysses Nardin certificate of performance. This makes it ideal for modern adventurers and long-time loyal Ulysse Nardin customers who want the same craftsmanship and performance from the Swiss watchmaker with every purchase.
Marine Torpileur Appearance
The working parts of the Marine Torpilleur are impressive, as are all of Ulysses Nardin’s fake watches. But for me, the real beauty is out there. Starting with the dial: large Roman numeral hour markers, hands redesigned in the shape of a marine timepiece, and a bright red “1846” inside the seconds hand. so perfect!
As for the overall design of the Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur, it will be available in three different models, two different dials, and in 18-karat rose gold and stainless steel. Here is the breakdown:
