Ulysse Nardin himself founded this watch company in 1846 after being trained by both his father and several of Neuchatel’s most talented watchmakers. In its long history, Ulysse Nardin has manufactured significant complications of all sorts, however it is best known for their marine chronometers which have been used in the world’s most renowned naval forces. In Ulysse Nardin’s recent years, the firm has opened its own Marine Chronometer manufacture in 2012 and has since developed a handful of new calibers entirely in-house. Ulysse Nardin is also particularly well known for their chiming/striking and Automata timepieces. Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense. Long-term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. Size and weight may deviate from the manufacturer’s indication. All watches are hand-measured and weighed.
Conditions may not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, dial, pendulum, separate base(s) or dome.

We do not warranty nor guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, including wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets, leather bands, and strap hardware, as repairs, restoration, and other subsequent work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.
