Tracing its roots back to the Kering Group brand's famous pocket chronometer as the second biggest breakthrough for the brand, the Marine Torpilleur range by Ulysse Nardin was an instant success since its launch in 2017. This year, the house doubles the variations under the collection,
with two new editions: a rose gold with a black and gold dial, and a Boutique-only version in stainless steel and grey dial.
Both the classic black and gunmetal grey are contemporary renditions of the original white and blue dial editions. Both the watches feature elongated Roman numerals on the dial to mark the hours with matching poire-style hands and the ‘Haut’ (high) and ‘Bas’ (low) indications of the power reserve. The small-seconds counter at the 6 o'clock position encircles the date window and the “1846” logo – a nod to the year the house was founded.
“A less formal, more contemporary version of the iconic Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer, the Marine Torpilleur is aimed at a younger clientele.” said Patrick Pruniaux, Chief Executive Officer of Ulysse Nardin. Powered by the Marine Chronometer's self-winding in-house UN-118 movement with a 60-hour power reserve, the 42mm watch come in perfectly matched alligator leather straps.
