We covered in detail the first UN Marine Tourbillon Grand Feu in 2017. For SIHH 2017, UN released a followup to the remarkable value feat with the Marine Tourbillon Grand Feu Guilloche, with a magnificent blue dial. Here is our photo essay of the new watch.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Tourbillon Blue Grand Feu Enamel
The watch remains much the same as with the 2017 edition, but in place of the smooth un-textured white dial, the blue enamel in this new edition is coated over a guilloche dial. This provides the dial with added depth and texture, not to mention the ever popular blue hue.
The case is the same as the earlier version, and still 43mm in stainless steel with the signature Marine shape. The blue grand feu enamel are adorned with classical leaf styled hands and Roman numerals with the power reserve indicator at 12.
The dial is made by Donzé Cadran,a company owned by U. The blue enamel is applied over a dial which has first been guilloched. And the texture of the guilloche is revealed by the transluscent blue enamel which is applied.
The tourbillon remains the same flying version. And is quite beautifully displayed through a cutout on the dial.
The movement remains the Calibre UN-128, with 60h power reserve and chronometer certification. The decoration of this movement, on the back, is relatively simple.
