Back in 2017, Ulysse Nardin dispatched another sub-assortment, actually roused by the exemplary Marine Chronometer plan, yet with a more easygoing look and a more available cost. This watch, the Marine Torpilleur , first arrived in a customary style, with a white dial, Roman numerals and a force save marker (dedicated to 19th-century chronometers). In 2018, the brand transformed this watch into something bolder, sportier and more field-situated, with the cool-looking Marine Torpilleur Military . Today, two new restricted versions join the positions, one in Black DLC, one in bronze.
The thought with the Marine Torpilleur was to offer the obvious appeal of the Marine Chronometer watches in a more contemporary-looking 42mm case (not any more incorporated carry module), with the average dial format of such watches and a more available cost – truth be told, situating itself as the passage level watch of the brand, despite the fact that it actually included a pleasant in-house development. Altogether, this was a classy facelift to the Marine assortment and at long last a respectable sticker price joined to it.
We’d need to stand by a year to see the principal advancement of this model, with the presentation of the Marine Torpilleur Military . Bigger, with a 44mm case, a lot bolder in style, with its matte, sandblasted finish, sportier too with Arabic numerals and a vintage-looking dial, the watch actually highlighted a similar base chronometer development, yet in a worked on form without a date and a force hold marker. To put it plainly, Ulysse Nardin’s vision of a field watch.
For 2019, the brand presents two new restricted versions, each offered in 300 pieces, as an accolade for Ulysse Nardin’s military legacy. While the essentials of the Torpilleur Military have been regarded, these new models being visual updates with new tones and new materials.
The first of the two is the Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Military Bronze. Its 44mm case, actually matte with a sandblasted finish and a super-thin bezel, is made of the trendiest material in the watch world today: bronze. Gold-ish on these pictures, it will acquire patina over the long run and change tone, which impeccably suits the military theme of this watch.
The bronze instance of the Marine Torpilleur Military is combined with a matte blue dial, with white Arabic numerals and gold-hued hands. To stay away from any danger of sensitivities, the caseback is made of steel and is stepped with a torpedo transport. It comes with a blue leather lash for an easygoing look.
The second model is a dark and-khaki variant of the Torpilleur Military. Here, the sandblasted case has been treated in covertness mode with a DLC covering on all the parts, including the enriched caseback. Coordinating the dull theme is a matte dark dial with khaki Arabic numerals and hands. This military tone is likewise found on the tie, which is made of “trellis fabric”.
Inside the instance of the two releases is the in-house type UN-118, an advanced programmed development with a silicon hairspring and a silicon anchor escapement running at 4Hz with a force save of 60 hours. Despite the fact that not obvious, the development is pleasantly designed and will perform well gratitude to its chronometer affirmation conveyed by the COSC.
