Marine Chronometer Manufacture

For more than a century, Ulysse Nardin has devoted its talent to the manufacture of marine chronometers, and carries on this tradition in 2012. The Marine Chronometer Manufacture combines the art of grand feu enamel with the precision of the UN-118 calibre, introduced in 2011. Its imposing 45-mm case in pink gold is enhanced with a new crown whose rubber casing facilitates winding and setting. The hand-crafted dial in snow white enamel contrasts with the black Roman numerals and cherry-red accents. Ulysse Nardin further demonstrates its creativity in the proprietary movement whose lever escapement is manufactured in DiamonSIL, a revolutionary alloy of diamond and silicon. The gold model is proposed as a 350-piece limited series.
