Some Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Watches...

44 mm case, sandblasted or satin steel, bronze.... With or without ( but for me, without date, please ), and different dials. 

Isn't there a base for a community watch? 

Here are those I could notice on the Net. 

The Marine Torpilleur US Navy Edition: 

The Marine Torpilleur Bronze with its dark blue dial: 

The Marine Torpilleur Sandblasted case: Black or white dial....

And to end, the Farfetch Edition: 

I really like this 44 mm case even if, here I would prefer a tad smaller one ( 42 mm ). But I am convinced there is a base for a project, here. 

What do you think? 



I think there is a strong case for a community watch here Nico. One of my favorite versions is the 42mm Monaco Yacht Club edition - More wearable,Grand Feu, with really nice contrasting

Sub dials with some subtle color additions and a brushed steel case - I have been thinking about this one for some time ...

Have a great Sunday smile Will

Without date, here, it would be highly tempting, for me. [nt]

I like this dial a lot!

Might I ask for hand wound, eight days based on the magnificent UN118? A 42 mm should be possible, I mean, JLC did eight day calibers in 41.5mm. So: Grand Feu, blue markers, red accents, perhaps no date but no deal breaker and eight days. That's not too much to ask, is it?

There are some interesting ideas, here. Thanks for your input. [nt]

I also think your 1st one (US Navy with no date) is very compelling in its purity... [nt]

I wish it was a hand wound movement

The power reserve indicator begs for it!

The Cal 118 is not bad at all... [nt]

Well, why not but will enthusiasts follow if the price jumps high? [nt]

Great subject.

Unfortunately the 44mm case would not work for me (I tried it already at the AD).

If I could wish it would be for me:
- the 42 mm case
- the dial  (or at least the same color combination) of the 1st version you show
- no date
- this beautiful engraved caseback


Well noted, my friend. I am not far rom sharing your preferences. ;) [nt]

I like your idea a lot Nico...

 By: Mike H : October 11th, 2020-04:31
This case in 42 mm could be an excellent base indeed. UN is making some very nice dials.
Hereafter my ideas, I am talking about the dial only, without looking at the sometimes different case in the below photos...
How about an enamel grand feu dial, either plain or guilloché or soleillé, either in a nice deep blue colour or in black, of course NO date whatever the iteration imho, that should be fantastic looking, what do you think ?...

Enamel grand feu guilloché of course without tourbillon (and with your suggested case not this one)

Or this one in enamel soleillé (or just plain lacquered enamel) with no date in blue blue or black

Your two example do represent amazing dial indeed. The only drawback i find in the case of the second example (the non tourbillon) is that legibility is not that good under certain lighting ...

With the grey looking hands and the blue dial for some reasons...

Thanks for your input. Well noted points. [nt]

Without date is perfect, but smaller than 44 for me. [nt]

Ok, my friend. I think we have a consensus for a smaller case. [nt]

44 mm is too big.

 By: M4 : October 11th, 2020-05:17
The narrow bezel makes the watch wear even larger than its actual size. For a community watch, I'd love a piece similar to this Singapore Watch Club edition in black enamel except with Arabic numerals.

About 40mm would be just right. 😄 M4

40 / 42mm that sounds perfect. [nt]

I look at a bunch of Marine Torpilleurs.
42mm will be perfect.

I prefer the grey dial with golden hands.

OK. [nt]
