Ulysse Nardin Chronograph Calendar.

I would certainly not mind having it on my wrist in any metal actually. And its condition is just amazing, it looks like NOS. Thanks for sharing Nico

Is the month switched by the calendar mechanism oder has it to be changed manually? Marcus

The case is a screwback if i'm not mistaken so it would be post 1956, maybe late 1950's, early 1960's. The movement is a modified Valjoux 72C with the removal of the hour register at 6 o'clock. Rare, as this movement would normally have been adapted for t... 

Congrats on the screw-in case back. Here is a picture.

And another one of the movement, which is the Valjoux 72C, indeed: I've never seen this version with the moonphase and the Valjoux 88. Do you have a photo? Thanks for your very interesting comments and informations, polan. And welcome back here! Best, Nic...  

This is the one with the Valjoux 88
