1970's Ulysse Nardin Vintage Mens Retro Automatic Watch - Stainless Steel

Ulysse Nardin

Item No. 9457

Today's offering showcases this very cool and classic mens automatic Ulysse Nardin chronometer in gorgeous restored condition.

It has a retro styled tonneau case with stunning royal blue dial. Its case is a monococque (one-body) design which originally had strong watch-resistance.

It is full size, measuring 35mm in diameter without the crown, in between the sizes of a Rolex Date model and a Rolex Datejust, and its chunky case makes it wear a little larger.

Powering it is its original well-made Ulysse Nardin automatic movement.

It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. It has all of its original parts and presents in gorgeous condition - about a 9.7 out of 10.

Its case presents in mint condition with only light signs of previous polishing. Its dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as UN factory done to the naked eye.

As part of the restoration a Master Watchmaker has overhauled the movement. It is running very strong and true, keeping time on par with a new UN in our testing recording position.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

A classic half century old Ulysse Nardin that looks like new!

Ulysse Nardin:
Ulysse Nardin is best known by many collectors for creating chronometers, extremely accurate time keeping instruments. Their marine chronometer used by ship's captains to plot and follow the correct course while at sea. By employing sextants and chronometers, a captain could track the changes in his course over time and determine the exact location of his ship, and Nardin's marine chronometers were among the most reliable and sought after.
