Since the spark of international trade in the late 19th century, Ulysse Nardin has been crafting marine chronometers, keeping captains and their valued cargo precisely on course. To date, Ulysse Nardin has been honored with more than 4,300 first prizes and 18 gold medals for innovation. And, although satellites have replaced the marine chronometer and the sextant as navigation instruments, Ulysse Nardin marine chronometers continue to be prized and sought after by enthusiasts and collectors alike.
Further illustrating Ulysse Nardin’s imagination in watch making, the UN-118 caliber, conceived and executed entirely in-house, is now offered in the Marine Chronometer Manufacture Collection. The UN-118 continues the advancement of Ulysse Nardin’s use of new materials and techniques. The anchor escapement in Caliber UN-118 is produced using DiamonSil, Ulysse Nardin’s revolutionary alliance of diamond and silicon.
The movement features a stellar 60-hour power reserve indicator, oversized small seconds register and a date display at 6 o’clock. It boasts Ulysse Nardin’s «quick setting» allowing forward and backward date adjustments.
