What makes an Ulysse Nardin special? In a world before quartz watches, ships relied on so-called marine chronometers - extremely complicated maritime clocks, built for the sea and accurate enough to determine longitude by means of celestial navigation. Ulysse Nardin carry their awe-inspiring past into the present and the future, designing complicated wristwatches with a delightful naval theme.
Who wears a Ulysse Nardin? Wearers of UN don't wimp around with their watches. A UN almost demands a rather big wrist with a confidence to match, and an active lifestyle doesn't hurt. While we here at JamesEdition certainly do not look down on the so-called "desk divers", a Ulysse Nardin timepiece does best fit into the milieu for which it was created - out in the sea, or even submerged in the ocean.
Exclusivity & Rarity: An already strong brand always gaining new fans amongst watch aficionado, UN is one of those brands where you would be wise to act now rather than later. The once-holder of the most complicated watch in the world, the Astrolabium, and several limited edition pieces such as the Planetarium Copernicus and the Tellurium Johannes Kepler secure Ulysse Nardin's place on the exclusive watchmaking map.
