Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Chronograph

Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Chronograph of the Year introduces pocket watches from the early 20th century, used by scientists, racers and Olympic timekeepers

It has existed in one form or another for at least 85 years.

The annual chronograph is a series of fascinating complications. The Marine Torpilleur annual chronograph can display the time from month and date to 1/10 second. A large amount of information can be collected through a design that does not deviate much from the standard chronograph. No wonder the annual calendar is one of the earliest popular products of replica Ulysse Nardin. Because it can reduce the time to 1/10 second, it served as a timekeeper at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. This new model is an improvement on the 1996 design by Ludwig Oechslin of Ochs & Junior, which led to the UN-150 movement. The crown can be used to easily adjust all aspects of the annual calendar data, allowing the wearer to relax.

Like other watches in the Torpileur series, this watch is available in blue and white dial versions. Roman numerals add elegance to the overall aesthetic; in the 1930s, it was largely considered a tool watch. Pocket watch patterns throughout the Torpilleur series, especially the annual chronograph-after all, almost this precise design combination appeared on the dashboard of racing cars in the 1930s and 1940s.
