WatchAdvisor.com is glad to introduce you a new series of articles aiming at improving your understanding and knowledge of the watch industry. Each week, we will have the pleasure to present in detail a brand and its collections, and in order for you to pick the watch of your dream, we will also provide a selection of our 10 favorite watches. This week, we cover a brand that as a long tradition with the sea – Ulysse Nardin!

What does the Brand stand for?

In 1846, Ulysse Nardin founded his watch company in Le Locle, Switzerland. Focusing on two main pillars, namely complicated pocket watches and marine chronometers, the manufacture has always been a synonym of precision and reliability. Its acquisition by Rolf W. Schnyder in 1983 is a decisive moment for the company, as he enabled the brand’s revitalization, restoring a status that was slowly declining. Nowadays, Ulysse Nardin still remains one of the few watch companies willing to have control over the whole production process, considering in-house production as a token of quality.

 

About the Models

Marine

The Marine collection is an homage to Ulysse Nardin’s long connection with the sea. These elegant chronometers and chronographs combine classic design and technical performances.

 

Diver

With the Diver collection, Ulysse Nardin uses its know-how to offer professionals all the functions they need for a safe dive underwater. The chronographs and chronometers of the Diver collection have a sporty look but can surely be worn on more casual occasions.

 

Classico

As a pioneer in the world of Haute Horlogerie, Ulysse Nardin possesses the knowledge to offer watches with stunning complications. From the skeleton tourbillon and the minute repeater to the perpetual calendar, the Classico collection encompasses a wide range of incredible and highly technical timepieces.

 

Executive

Combining audacious design with highly technical complications, the Executive collection offers ultra-modern timepieces. The Executive Tourbillon Free Wheel is of particular interest as it gives the impression that the watch’s components are flying under the sapphire glass.

 

Freak

With a truly unique design, the Freak collection challenges the codes of traditional watchmaking. Having the particularity of using a silicon escapement, the Freak does not have a crown and hands. This collection truly corresponds to the ingenious and inventive spirit of the brand.
