Ulysse Nardin cannot get enough of their new Marine collection. They are probably planning to release it with every possible combination of complications. This time around they present the Ulysse Nardin Marine Tourbillon.

Ulysse Nardin is not really to be blamed. They have a sincere naval background since 1846 as a young Ulysse Nardin created the first marine deck chronometers. These precision navigational instruments were prized and valued greatly for their accuracy at a time when even a few seconds difference could end up in disaster.

Ulysse Nardin still uses this work as an inspiration for their Marine collection. The new Marine Tourbillon combines three important factors for the brand: In-house production, technical know-how and rare artistry.

The Marine Tourbillon uses the completely new automatic UN-128 caliber with a flying tourbillon and a 60-hour power-reserve. A tourbillon that can be seen through the dial at six o’clock, one which is entirely produced in-house by Ulysse Nardin. From the cage and wheels right up to the screws.

The UN-128 is housed in a 43-millimeter stainless steel case with a grand feu enamel dial. A historic technique that Ulysse Nardin also has in-house with their specialists from Donzé Cadrans. The model is available with a white or blue dial.

This artisanal craft dates back to the 17th century, the Grand Feu enamel gets its name from the incredible heat required to fuse the enamel powder in a kiln. The skill of the Donzé Cadrans craftsmen at creating these delicate dials is renowned, and their work highly sought after.

The dial is completed with elegant hands and roman numerals that instantly link the timepiece as belonging to the Marine Collection. The Ulysse Nardin Marine Tourbillon comes on a black or blue alligator leather strap, depending on the version you have chosen.
