She’s smart. She’s beautiful. She’s successful. The new Ulysse Nardin Lady Marine Chronometer brings together the groundbreaking power of the UN-118 caliber and modern refinement for a performance timepiece that allures.
An authentic marine instrument, the watch possesses the self-winding, in-house movement known for its silicium technology and incorporating the date corrector, allowing forwards and backwards adjustments. A revolutionary caliber affirming the independence of the manufacturer, the well-known UN-118 was introduced to the ladies collection in 2015 with the Marine Chronometer Manufacture; its success carries on today in the Lady Marine Chronometer.
Embodying a classic, understated elegance with a sporty essence, the timekeeper reveals a redesigned case at 39 mm in diameter in stainless steel or 18-karat rose gold. Its mother-of-pearl dial brings forth a delicate touch, as does its Roman numerals marking the hours. Gentle circles enclose the 60-hour power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock and the seconds counter at 6 o’clock. Turn it over, and its acclaimed movement is visible through the open case-back. Completing the look is a leather or rubber strap with titanium or gold elements – depending on the case version of choice – and a deployant clasp for fit and enhanced security.
Further demonstrating its durability is its water resistance to 100 meters. Its rubberized screw-crown – a crucial component to ensuring water resistance, helps prevent water from penetrating the piece and protects against added stress and damage to the crown. Moreover, it makes handling the crown, overall, much easier.
Like those that came before it, caliber UN-118 opened a new chapter in the Ulysse Nardin vault of firsts. Its use in the new Lady Marine Chronometer reinforces the manufacture’s reputation for creating world-class marine chronometers and catering to its female collectors. Sensibly stylish, this timepiece is a catalyst for great things to come in watchmaking for women who appreciate both the science and aesthetic behind the master craft.
