Ulysse Nardin is most well known for it’s manufacture of their highly accurate marine chronometers, hundreds of which were supplied to over fifty of the world's navies. Even now their watches are favoured by the admiralty for their precision and complexity.
Amongst their many awards, part of Ulysse Nardin’s “Trilogy of Time” was named by the Guinness Book of Records in 1989 for being the world's most functional watch with 21 distinct functions including local and solar time, the orbits and eclipses of the sun and moon and even the position of several major stars. It comes as no surprise that such a watch would be favoured by those who spend their nights on the open ocean.
For over 165 years Ulysse Nardin have been manufacturing their exquisite watches, priding itself in being one of the most innovative and forward-looking watch companies in the world today. Ulysse Nardin is also known for reviving cloisonné watches, which were slowly gravitating towards extinction.
Each of Ulysse Nardin’s watches are a merge of classic watchmaking technique and complex visions, something that made a profound impact on the Swiss watch industry. They demonstrate the reliability and accuracy that their founder cherished, anchoring them as one of the most sought after marine watches in the world.
