Earlier this year, Ulysse Nardin dispatched another watch that we here at MONOCHROME idea best represented the embodiment of the brand, the Marine Torpilleur . Outwardly roused by antique Marine Chronometers, fueled by an in-house development with silicon parts (UN were the first to furnish a watch with that), this piece showed a by and large pretty cool look promptly unmistakable as UN and an alluring sticker price. All things considered, as the SIHH 2018 is gradually showing up, Ulysse Nardin has revealed another form of this watch, the Marine Torpilleur Military. And keeping in mind that it is actually and in fact (almost) a similar watch, the look is something completely different.
In June this year, Ulysse Nardin disclosed the Marine Torpilleur , a thoroughly examined facelift to revitalize the brand’s significant Marine assortment. Marginally more straightforward in plan, with old style carries, a more slender case and a sensible measurement of 42mm, it didn’t fail to remember all the excellence of the Marine assortment, with a dial that was unmistakably roused by late-19th and mid 20th century chronometers created by the brand (don’t fail to remember that these marine chronometers were the strength of the brand since its origin, back in 1846). While dressed to be worn on the wrist, the Marine Torpilleu kept all the credits of a good marine instrument: clarity, precision (on account of the COSC-ensured development), and an exemplary presentation with enormous Roman numerals, little seconds and force reserve.
For the SIHH 2018, Ulysse Nardin comes back with another adaptation of this fruitful watch, presently with the Marine Torpilleur Military. It isn’t viewed as a legacy piece any longer, however more a goal of configuration, to make something more current, more unique, and for the most part new for the brand. Obviously, as a military-enlivened piece, Ulysse Nardin plays with some vintage codes, yet without getting lost seeing its own past. This Marine Torpilleur Military is a genuine curiosity for UN… And it shows very some solid plan choices.
The first thing to grab the eye unquestionably is the situation. Still in tempered steel, actually formed similarly, with an extra-flimsy fluted bezel and conventional hauls, it nonetheless, changes in style with a completely matte, sand-impacted completion, which gives the Marine Torpilleur Military an unpleasant, practically modern device look. Regarding measurements, the case is additionally bigger than the standard version, as it presently gauges 44mm in distance across. At long last, it features an larger than usual crown with jewel shape, an exemplary style for military pieces. it is joined to cowhide ties with a marginally matured/vintage feel and the back is stepped with a particular Torpilleur boat.
As for the dial, Ulysse Nardin makes some solid developments as well. No white plate with customary Roman numerals this time. All things being equal, the Marine Torpilleur Military uses radiant Arabic numerals, combined with UN mark hands. Uplifting news: no more date window. Likewise, UN has decided to make this watch somewhat cleaner, by eliminating the force save. The little second at the 6 remaining parts the solitary extra sign. Inside this sub-dial are two bits of text: a red number comparing to the quantity of the piece (from 0 to 300) and C.W. for “Chronometer Watch“.
