History of Ulysse Nardin Marine Watches
Around the mid-19th century, the demand of the pocket and marine chronometers was really high but, unfortunately, only a few watchmakers offered them. At his home in Le Locle, watchmaker Ulysse Nardin truly desired having his own chronometers, a dream which finally came to pass. In 1846, the young watchmaker established a watchmaking company of which came to bear his name.
By the 1870s, the Ulysse Nardin Marine deck chronometers were sailing with over 50 navies and shipping companies. Due to the exquisite efficiency and accuracy of the instruments, the sailors came to love them very much. On its end, on the other hand, the Ulysse Nardin Company continued its quest on innovation and by the mid-1970s, it had around 4300 awards.
In 1996, the Swiss watchmaker was to celebrate its 150th anniversary since its debut in the watchmaking industry. At the time, the brand was under the new management of Rolf W. Schnyder Group but that didn’t prevent the “birthday” celebration. The moment was commemorated with two different wristwatches, with one being the Marine Chronometer 1846. The vintage-inspired Ulysse Nardin watch had a stunning classic display with bold Roman numerals and the casing was either in gold or stainless steel. Of current, the Ulysse Nardin Marine collection has around eight different series, with all paying tribute to the brand’s rich history with the seas.

Designed for the diving family, all the encompassed models in the series had a unidirectional rotatable bezel, screw-down crown, and robust casing with 300-meter waterproofness.
The oversized indexes and hands of the 40mm Diver’s watch were fitted with luminescent material to ensure optimum readability while under the deep dark waters.
In the year 2009, Ulysse Nardin launched a limited edition of the Monaco YS Maxi Marine Diver watch at the Monaca Yacht Show. As the brand’s first time at the event, the Diver’s watch was one of the two timepieces released to mark the moment.

As an update of the original Marine Diver watch, the dial has oversized indexes and hands, with both covered with covered in grey luminescent material.

The luxury watches manufacturer launched the Maxi Marine Chronometer which came with a 43mm case which has fine fluting for a distinctive appearance. For its inner casing, the glorious watch has either a black or blue dial, with both having fine sunburst lines and bold Roman hour indicators.

In celebrating the 20th anniversary since the introduction of the Marine collection, the Switzerland-based watchmaker introduced a new Marine Chronograph with an Annual Calendar function.

With the movement, the automatic watch allows you even to adjust your watch’s date forward or backward.
