Hands-On – Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin

This year, Ulysse Nardin is on a tear… After the noteworthy assortment dispatched at the SIHH 2017, which showed more present day and refined plans, at this point still “very Ulysse” in the style, we currently have a progression of a few rather amazing watches, all with a vintage-roused topic. After the Diver Le Locle , a plunge watch enlivened by a 1960s watch, here is the Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin, this time taking motivation from a 1945 watch. Also, indeed, the look is simply superb.

As with the Diver Le Locle , we have by and by been amazed by the Classico Paul David Nardin… for a straightforward explanation: vintage-arranged pieces are not typically something the brand does. Obviously, we as a whole think about the establishments of Ulysse Nardin and the massive commitment it made to marine chronometers, a rich legacy that can still be seen today in current assortments and that is profoundly integrated in the DNA of the brand.

As clearly demonstrated in its name, this new piece from Ulysse Nardin is important for the Classico line, something that can undoubtedly be seen from the limited and clean 39mm steel case. In any case, compared to the ordinary Classico watches, like this one for example , the instance of the Paul David Nardin is marginally unique (and furthermore somewhat more modest), reflecting the 1940s style it has been intended to copy – which isn’t horrendous, frankly. The center case is dainty while the watch includes a profoundly domed sapphire gem (suggestive of vintage Plexiglas). The instance of the Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin is complemented pleasantly by a flexible and casual light earthy colored calfskin tie, with pin buckle.

The dial of this  Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin is likewise a very sensational flight from the rest of the assortment, with its shiny white tone and basic however rich applied Arabic numerals. The presentation keeps to the essentials: hours and minutes in the middle, little seconds on the sub-dial (which is well-positioned and proportional) lastly, a date window at 6. Whilst it’s not truly exact, as it’s not present on the 1945 watch that motivated this Classico Paul David Nardin, the date work is by all accounts an interest of many last customers (regardless of whether in-your-face gatherers will presumably despise it). However, its coordination in the little second sub-dial remains discreet.

Inside the instance of the Ulysse Nardin Classico Paul David Nardin is a notable development, the in-house type UN-320, a programmed development with 48h force hold, 4Hz recurrence and the typical highlights of the brand, which means the silicon hairspring, get away from haggle fork.
