Ulysse Nardin Marine Tourbillon and Marine Torpilleur. Some of the very good Ulysse Nardin from these last years.

Jun 03, 2021,15:55 PM

Many of us complained about the design of Ulysse Nardin Watches for these last years. And I have to include myself as I am not a big fan of these " Big X " watches. 

There are some nice exceptions to this observation, though. Such as the Marine Tourbillon. Here, Ulysse Nardin released an attractive watch, and a bit aggressive in price. 

For 26 K euros you have an enamel grand feu dial with a tourbillon! How many other serious brands could offer that? 

And, if my memory serves me well, a silicon escapement. 

It was not so long ago, in 2017. 

The Marine Torpilleur is another one I like a lot, too. 

This one came in 2018. 

This is the Ulysse Nardin I like. And yes, I am keeping the faith in this brand!

The only thing I would change on the tourbillon Is I always thought it looked a bit boring with all the components being mostly silver looking which does not bring much dimension when looking at it from the front! An open tourbillon should feel like “wow”... 

Thanks, Fx.

Personally i build a bond with the two. I start collecting watches when the two launched. I had an eye on the chronometer diver (blue) and almost bought it. The bad guy who canceled the chronometer diver was my Omega Seamaster which was easier to get whil... 

just saw it had a very large price increase

was just looking at these a few months ago, i'm partial to the blue dial. i remember is being 28k usd and now it's 33.8k. i wonder why the torpilleur is only 50m WR vs the 100m for the tourbillon.

The watches are made for...
