Ulysse Nardin Torpedo Tourbillon 175, from 2021.

Apr 09, 2022,09:04 AM

Shame on me, I didn't see this one coming. I saw it in a window display and had to make some search to find what it was...  

The Torpedo Tourbillon was issued in a limited edition of 175 pieces to celebrate the 175 anniversary of the brand. 

It is a 42 mm case ( good ), in rose gold ( well, it wold have been good to have the choice between rose gold and a white metal ) water resistant to 50 meters ( bad, as the Marine Tourbillon issued in 2017 is water resistant to 100 meters ), with conventional lugs ( good, as the tubular lugs of the Marine Tourbillon bugged me a bit ) and a great black enamel dial ( excellent ). 

Here it is: 

In white metal, with a black enamel dial and arabic numbers, it would have been irresistible...

It would be nice to have more options for the case… here’s a humble comparison with my Seiko which shares a similar colour scheme. The rose gold is no slouch though, also appealing. ...

This is a very appealing UN

…but the finishing on the tourbillon case really kills it for me. This is where you’re looking at on this watch, after all.
