Today's offering showcases this classic and very elegant mens Ulysse Nardin chronometer watch. Its features a wonderful Calatrava case that has lugs that are subtly double faceted - Calatrava cases are one of our favorite designs from the era.
We love its handsome case and pure white dial with Arabic numerals for the even hours. This style could pass as a Patek - that was our first thought when we saw the watch.
At just over 35mm in diameter it is full size for the era, and its large dial gives it the presence of a 36mm or 37mm watch on the wrist.
It is fully Ulysse Nardin down to all the original hands and crown and had just finished a true expertly done restoration. It presents in gorgeous condition. Note we just quickly sold an identical watch to this with a very slightly different dial variation.
Its steel case presents as mint. Its clean white dial has been meticulously restored - its printing could pass as UN factory done to the naked eye.
As part of the restoration its fine chronometer movement has been freshly overhauled by a Master Watchmaker.
For the finishing touch it has been equipped it with a new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
Ulysse Nardin is best known for creating chronometers, extremely accurate time keeping instruments often 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.
