Official description

To early astronomers - from Galilei to Copernicus to Johannes Kepler- the importance of astral navigation could not be underestimated. As one of the oldest preoccupations of mankind, astronomy deals with all celestial bodies, from planets and their satellites to comets, meteors, quasars and galaxies and has continually aroused the curiosity of mankind. Our planet’s moon has been of particular interest, as I has a direct impact on the oceans effects our life on earth.

Ulysse Nardin has been producing watches with moonphases since the end of the 19th century. The moonphase is a complication that is at the heart of every astronomical instrument, as the phases of the moon control the tides, hence navigation.

The Marine Torpilleur Moonphase comes with either a blue or white dial and its use enhances the pleasure of being able to admire the moon from Earth and its vast seas. The Torpilleur is the French name for a torpedo boat, an attack ship that needed above all to be quick and with a precise aim. Used in combination with a sextant, the chronometers of yesterday allowed for detailed, astral navigation which included following the phases of the moon to comprehend the ocean’s movements to the best of human ability. This Torpilleur Moonphase, the most recent descendant of an illustrious family, permits modern man to do the same, whether on the deck of his own sailing vessel or simply admiring the seas from afar.
