With the Blue Dial Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar Replica Watch, Ulysse Nardin has successfully applied this new paradigm to premium watchmaking. It is the ultimate test of experience, the final push of genius.Simplicity is the hardest thing to achieve.
Apart from the central hands indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds, the 30-minute counter is displayed at 3 o’clock, the hour counter at 6 o’clock and the small second counter at 9 o’clock.The model also includes a chronograph feature. The latter also features a month display, which includes sub-dials offering useful guide-marks when setting.
Halfway between a Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar Replica Watch, which doesn’t need correcting before the year 2100, and a simple calendar that requires five manual adjustments a year, the annual calendar is mechanically programmed for one year: it recognizes months composed of 30 and 31 days, but not February. It therefore only needs to be corrected once a year.
But where classic devices involve up to thirty components, watchmakers at Ulysse Nardin Marine Replica Watch have managed to develop a system containing around only a dozen elements. In a development of the simple calendar developed for the UN-118 caliber, the annual calendar needed only three additional wheels.
Finally, the date is displayed in a window at 6 o’clock. The Marine Chronograph Annual Calendar bears the same classic forms as sailing instruments, including a ribbed bezel, a screw-crown guaranteeing perfect water-resistance, a full lug width ensuring stability on the wrist and a 43 mm diameter case for easy readability.
Its annual calendar offers a mechanical solution which is simple to use, adjustable both on the front and back, and, at the same time, imbued with the values of reliability and high-precision, so cherished by the watchmaker. Its UN-153 caliber is entirely manufactured in-house including the silicium balance-spring. This Ulysse Nardin Replica Watch particularly well designed movement allows the time and calendar pointers to be moved in either direction.
