Official description

 

Enameling is a delicate art, one that Ulysse Nardin continues to employ today. One of the new Marine Torpilleur has a magnificent Ulysse Nardin blue in-house enameled dial (Grand Feu technique). Thanks to the company’s collaboration with Donzé Cadrans, an independent enameling workshop acquired by the manufacture in 2011, Ulysse Nardin has been able to constantly innovate and improve on this artisanal technique, which requires that over 90% of the process to be done by hand. Ulysse Nardin masters this métier d’art like no other watchmaker anywhere, including the technique of grand feu enamel and cloisonné, in which a design is created by filling in a wire outline with colored enamels.

They replicate all of the “codes” of a traditional Ulysse Nardin marine chronometer, when, in the early days, a marine chronometer cost the equivalent of one-third of the price of the entire sea-worthy vessel. Their cathedral hands, Roman numerals and indication of how much longer they will keep ticking before needing to be worn or wound, are all direct descendants of the first designs produced by Ulysse Nardin. With massive 60-hours  power reserve, these novel models represent the successful technological advances made upon the original chronometers, which needed to be wound but were streamlined to keep working precisely in order to count the seconds that tick by day after day, during the voyage.
