Ulysse Nardin brought the luxury Marine Mega Yacht timepiece to the Miami Yacht Show where it was billed as an offering perfect for owners of prestigious yachts.
A passion for adventure on the seas, and everything that is associated with it has been a central element of Ulysse Nardin since it was founded in 1846. With a strong history of developing Haute Horlogerie watches the brand employs cutting edge materials such as silicon and creates components and movements in house. This exceptional level of watchmaking excellence has resulted in Ulysse Nardin gaining membership in the exclusive Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, comprised of a circle of Swiss watchmakers.
Describing the Marine Mega Yacht timepiece, the company stated that it “combines technical versatility and the raw emotion of the ocean waves.” Built to mimic the luxury styling of mega yacht, the watch is made from platinum and has onboard a flying tourbillon that is equipped with a cage that is similar to the latest-generation ship’s propeller. The watch also boasts a 3D “grand feu” enamel dial that is modeled after the shape of a ship’s bow as it moves through the waves. Other outstanding elements of the watch include a precise moon recreated with ultra-detailed surface, tide indicator, and an anchor positioned at 12 o’clock which raises and lowers according to the power reserve.
The Marine Mega Yacht model is a follow up on the Marine Grand Deck Tourbillon watch which was released in 2016, and it comes with a platinum case with 44 mm diameter. Featuring a UN-631 caliber movement it has a power reserve of 80 hours and is water resistant up to 50 m. A bracelet in navy-blue alligator leather is fully integrated with the watch.
