Buying Ulysse Nardin Watches:

  1. History: Ulysse Nardin founded the company in 1846, with the intent of producing high-quality marine chronometers. Marine chronometers were essential for sailors to navigate the open waters. Marine chronometers helped sailors calculate longitude by taking note of the time and their proximity to the Greenwich Meridian. Marine chronometers, therefore, had to be highly accurate and durable enough to perform under extreme weather conditions. Ulysse Nardin succeeded at producing some of the world's best marine chronometers, receiving more than 4,300 first place medals in the business. Throughout the 20th century, Ulysse Nardin continued to impress consumers, world royalty and industry professionals with its pocket watches and wristwatches. Today, Ulysse Nardin continues to offer incredibly accurate luxury timepieces. Your authentic Ulysse Nardin watch is waiting for you.

  2. Style: Genuine Ulysse Nardin timepieces will dazzle any watch collector. Authentic Ulysse Nardin men's watches include the marine collection, which honors the company's history. Timepieces in this collection include the Blue Seal, which features a blue dial with a seal pattern and a textured rubber and gold or rubber and titanium watchband. The San Marco collection is also a standout in the authentic Ulysse Nardin assortment. Genuine Ulysse Nardin San Marco watches feature incredible artwork, some with a nautical theme. Ladies Ulysse Nardin watches are also available a range of stunning styles. The Ulysse Nardin Dual Time Ladies watch features ingenious styling for showcasing a second time zone: A traditional face with hour, minute and second hands displays local time, while a window showcases a number that signifies the time at home or another location.
