The elegant beauty of this watch is accentuated by the sleek dial with its two-counter chronograph. This pared-down design was used in several historic chronographs from Ulysse Nardin, and it delivers all the force of the original Marine DNA. The month counter at 9 o’clock is combined with the small seconds. The chronograph 30-minute counter is at 3 o’clock, while a round date at 6 o’clock boast the quick set function, and is easily adjustable both forwards and backwards. Created by Ulysse Nardin enamel specialists Donzé Cadrans, the pale milky color of the enamel results from the process of this challenging art.
Marine characteristics are also evident in the historic cathedral hands, logo and thin Roman numeral indexes which are crafted in blue steel, as well as the heritage logo and the words quantième annuel, or annual calendar, above the date.
Reinforcing the precision theme of this Ulysse nardin watches limited edition Replica Marine Torpilleur Military, this opinion has achieved both a Chronometer Certificate from Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC), as well as the brand’s own Ulysse Nardin Certificate. First released in 2012, the Ulysse Nardin Certificate is a seven-day process and assesses the watch according to these criteria:Cosmetic Inspection.Water Resistance, Vacuum, and Stress tests.Accuracy test in 6 places and 3 temperatures, during which it has to attain a deviation of no more than -2/+6 minutes per day.The Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Military also differentiates itself from the prior non-limited edition using a stamped caseback, featuring a Torpilleur boat, which is the French term for a destroyer. These were agile, fast warships used in the World Wars, although the link between a small long-distance warship and a 44mm watch with 50m water-resistance is ambiguous at best. The previous version could at least claim to be a little smaller than most of Ulysse Nardin’s other marine chronometers at 42mm. The brand is touting the Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Military as a bolder interpretation of the previous Torpilleur model, made in a way evocative of pocket chronometers favored by sea captains in the 19th and early 20th centuries. An oversize screwed-down crown with the Ulysse Nardin emblem should make for simple operation, and the fluted bezel provides a point of attention on the differently no-nonsense case. Two variations of this Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Military are available, an eggshell dial with brown leather strap and white contrast stitching, and a black dial with orange numerals, black leather straporange and orange contrast stitching.
Driving this self-winding chronograph and annual calendar is the UN-153 movement with a power reserve of 52 hours. The stringent precision and quality requirements of the Ulysse nardin watch band replacement Replica certificate are met through precision silicium components like the silicium balance-spring and escapement, both manufactured in-house.
A worthy inheritor of the lineage established by earlier Marine Chronometer Manufacture (2012) and Marine Chronograph Manufacture (2013) timekeepers, the Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar bears the same classic detailing. This includes a ribbed bezel, a screw-crown guaranteeing water resistance to 100 m, and a generous stainless steel 43 mm diameter case. The blue alligator strap is an elegant match to the rubber on the crown.
