Today's offering showcases this striking full size mens high-beat Ulysse Nardin mens compressor diver's watch.
It has a pleasing and strong compressor case and black dial with inner bezel. Its original compressor style cross-hatched crown complements the robust case well, and its original UN bracelet completes it.
Measuring 36mm in diameter without the crown, it is slightly larger than a Rolex Datejust. And like a Rolex, it is powered by an automatic movement that has been officially certified as chronometer, the highest distinction given to a watch movement.
Besides being a certified chronometer, it also features a high frequency 36,000 beats per hour balance system, twice the speed of many traditional watches and the fastest beat rate of the era, insuring exceptional accuracy.
Only a few specialist models of watches from a handful of brands beat at 36,000 per hour. As both a high frequency watch and an officially certified chronometer, the highest certification a watch can receive, this watch would have been among the very best when it came to accuracy in a widely-produced watch at the time.
It has just finished a true expertly done restoration. It presents in gorgeous restored condition.
The brushed finish of the case carries on to the bracelet. The case shows signs of previous polishing to the back. On the wrist it presents as perfect mint. The dial has been refinished - the printing could pass as UN factory done to the naked eye.
A Master Watchmaker has freshly overhauled the movement 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 custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
An nearly half-century old classic Ulysse Nardin chronometer that presents like new on the wrist!
Ulysse Nardin is best known by many collectors for creating chronometers, extremely accurate time keeping instruments. Their marine chronometer were 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.
