Although Ulysse Nardin is mostly known for its extremely accurate marine chronometers, the new Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin is a classic homage to their past.
The brand did a similar thing with a dive watch from the 1960s, the Ulysse Nardin Diver Le Locle. With the Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin the watch brand takes their inspiration from a 1945 watch. And the name of the Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin comes from Ulysse Nardin’s son, Paul David, who took control of the company after Ulysse’s death in 1876.
The Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin is a subtle dress watch
The watch is quite a surprise, as Ulysse Nardin doesn’t issue vintage inspired time pieces a lot. Even though the watch is very reminiscent of the normal Classico it’s a bit smaller. This gives it a 1940s feel and the highly domed sapphire crystal in combination with the silverized dial and Arabic indexes reinforce this.
The only aspect that is out of sorts is the date window at six o’clock, integrated in the small second sub-dial. Not exactly historically accurate, but Ulysse Nardin does it in a discrete way.
Inside the Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin you find the UN manufacture movement UN-320. It is developed by the brand itself and works with a silicium escapement and hairspring. To be in line with the whole vintage theme, it has no see-through case back. Something we would have liked.
