Introduced in June of this year, the new Marine Torpilleur Military will be putting in an appearance at SIHH 2018. It’s a modern Marine chronometer; a direct descendant of the pocket chronometers prized by the sea captains of 19th or beginning of the 20th century. The watch features the Ulysse Nardin UN-118 in-house movement, with the proprietary Silicium anchor escapement crafted in-house at the Swiss manufacture, it boasts both COSC certification and the Ulysse Nardin certificate, a double guarantee of the highest performance standards.
There are two interpretations, one with an eggshell white dial, whose outlined Arabic numerals enable quick reading of the time, matched by an elegant tan leather strap. The other in chic black, with orange Arabic numerals and superluminova-coated hands. Both editions have an oversized crown, and 44 mm case with a steel sand-blasted finish, water-resistant to 50 meters, and stamped on the back with the distinctive Torpilleur.
A small seconds function at 6 o’clock is complemented by a red serial number, showing the timepiece’s status as one of only 300 in a limited edition. The initials C.W. hail it is as a Chronometer Watch, referencing the military models of the past, whose design followed the strict codes of the armed forces.
