Contest: Which is the Ulysse Nardin watch which made you pay some consideration to the brand?

 By: amanico : May 4th, 2021-09:15
For me, there are three watches: The Perpetual Calendar: The Tellrurim: And the Freak: We were in the late 90's, early 2000's. Ulysse Nardin was an horological UFO at that time. Indeed, they made watches like no one else. Since then, I felt a big love for...  

Tellurium for me

This pretty much started my horological trip in the 90s

Freak, 160, Sonata

 By: MichaelC : May 4th, 2021-12:20
I own a Freak, had the 160 many years. Never owned a Sonata, but lusted for a Silicium. What a piece.

Is that the Mo LE 1/1?

Been a while since we have seen it!

Don't get me wrong, Sonata is very nice, but my grail would be able to:

Set two separate alarms, so I could leave one always on (e.g., 9:00 every day) and also sometimes set a second alarm as needed (just today, I also need a 12:00 alarm). With only one alarm, you have to change your intermittent alarm back to the daily alarm... 

Lucky you! :)

For me, the San Marcos with the blue enamel dials and the Trilogy, both from the 90s.

 By: vitalsigns : May 4th, 2021-13:09
Beyond reach for a student... But after that, the Maxi Marine Divers, the Freaks, the Perpetuals (as you've pictured), and the Sonata. UN has such a rich diversity of watches. Interesting question that generated a lot of good remembrances. Cheers, John

Freak was the genesis of the brand for me.

This led to discovering the perpetual Ludwig, Marine Chronometer and Tellurium.

Good choice!

Since i found WPS, start collecting automatic watches Ulysse Nardin pops up. Before i do not heard about the brand. You know Ulysse Nardin, when i was just entering the watch world when the internet came and i found chrono24. In that time prices for luxur... 

Fun Topic which I would like to read from many other brands

I know which was the watch for me... the San Marco GMT. It was this watch (though I remember it having baguettes) primarily because it was the first Ulysse I ever saw in the metal. It had a great complication, and for me back in the early 2000s when I had...  

In the late 90s and early 2000s UN was my favorite brand. First one for me was a white dialed annual calemdar chronograph, then I got a blue San Marco Dual Time, then a Blue Max followed

by a Marine Perpetual Ltd. Then like a dummy I started letting go of them. Sold the annual-chromo, then the San Marco Dual Time, then the Blue Max. Later at a watch party put on by an AD I bought a Hammerhead to replace the Blue Max and my wife bought a b...
