An Ulysse Nardin I didn't know: Minute Repeater from 1950.

36 mm Yellow Gold case, with a movement which looks familiar to those who know the Vacheron Minute Repeater.

According to Phillips, it is most probably an unique piece. I tend to agree with them when they say that we often see time only and chronograph, when it comes to vintage Ulysse Nardin. 

What a beauty!

I photographed it at the Phillips preview in London in October 2018. The case is similar to a Patek Philippe repeater () sold by the same auction house in 2016 (third image is courtesy of Phillips). Regards, Baruch ...

I would not be surprised if it's the same ebauche. Let me see if I can find some more info.

Uhhh! That movement is gorgeous!
