For centuries man has used the stars to guide himself at night while sailing the open seas. And in proper marine fashion, it wasn’t until the last century or so that we started dedicating timepieces to the art of marine navigation. In this instance, the Ulysses Nardin Marine Tourpilleur Chronometer pays homage to the 19th-century pocket chronometer that was carried in the pockets of nautical explorers.
Now, here’s a new generation chronometer that’s built for the modern era. Named after those small yet fast ships from an earlier era this is a timepiece built for contemporary travelers. It comes complete with their Caliber UN-118 watch movement housed within a 42mm stainless steel case, a handsome white dial protected by a luxurious sapphire crystal, leather strap with folding buckle, a 60 hours power reserve indicator, and water resistance up to 50 meters. Alluding to the cold waters of the deep blue sea, the Marine Torpilleur is the ideal addition to any fine watch collection.
