Ulysse Nardin has released two new models of their Marine Chronometer in two different variations targeting the lady collector. These pieces have a touch of flair with the addition of a diamond bezel.
A stunning timepiece comprising of feminine features and state-of-the-art technology. Delicate in appearance, with its mother-of-pearl dial, pastel Roman numerals and fluted bezel adorned with diamonds, it is also vigorous in function.
The design of these watches is based on chronometers which were highly precise clocks for ships, where the running seconds were located at 6 o’clock and the power reserve indicator at the 12 o’clock position. Hence the name Marine Chronometer.
Powered by the groundbreaking Ulysse Nardin 118 caliber, known for its DIAMonSIL escapement and silicon balance spring, and bearing all the hallmarks of the finest marine instruments, the ladies’ Marine Chronometer Manufacture offers women a wristwatch that is equal part jewelry, equal part extraordinary.
We think these pieces look very sporty but with a dash of elegance added by the diamond bezel.
