Ulysse Nardin isn’t popular in Australia, yet discovered popularity with buffs as the principal produce to join silicon parts in a watch development, which is no mean accomplishment.
That was two decades in a model called The Freak and beside that and a scope of marine-themed and brilliant GMT watches – well known particularly in fan center points like Singapore – there’s been little motivation to take uncommon note of the creator.
Two things however have happened: Avstev (think Girard Perregaux, Raymond Weil and as of not long ago Frederique Constant) now speaks to the brand in Australia, applying new vitality as a powerful influence for things, and Ulysse Nardin itself has lifted its amusement.
Three new watches from UN outline the point. Our most loved is the Diver Le Locle (over), a pleasantly estimated 42.2mm piece that pays tribute to Ulysse Nardin’s past.
While enlivened by a 1964 model, the innovation is unadulterated 2017 down to a self-twisting in-house development with, fittingly, silicium innovation. With 100 meter water-opposition, it goes ahead a sailcloth band and will be evaluated at $14,700.
A second retro piece is the Classico Paul David Nardin (over), a watch displayed after a 1945 timepiece.
What’s so great about this model? Its exquisite and ageless great looks. There’s a vintage-motivated silver-conditioned dial with little seconds marker, round date window and Arabic records, and the case is a controlled 39mm displayed on a calf darker calfskin strap.
A self-twisting in-house development powers things, and again you’re taking a gander at around $13,000.
The third watch that grabbed our attention – in a heap of UN newcomers – is an exquisite Perpetual Ludwig (above and underneath), a $29,000 recommendation that looks nearly Lange and Söhne-like.
There’s the silver dial and blued hands, a major date in a twofold window with month, day and year shows – too little seconds. The case is 41 mm, water impervious to 30 meters.
