Ulysse Nardin – Classico Paul David Nardin Replica Watches Best Price
Since 1846, when naval commanders and merchant captains from all around the world came looking for Ulysse Nardin’s marine and pocket chronometers, the company has been building on his winning approach of timekeeping innovation and precision. Every decade since then has seen its share of prize-winning innovative timepieces come out of the manufacture.
Today, the release of the Classico Paul David Nardin timepiece celebrates this illustrious history in a contemporary way.
Named after Ulysse Nardin’s son, Paul David, who took control of the company after his death in 1876, this timepiece is modeled after a 1945 timepiece.
Its elegant styling marks it instantly as belonging to the Classic Collection, with a few differences, like the vintage-inspired silverized dial with Arabic indexes. The classic Le Locle manufacture logo is engraved on the case-back.
Housed in a 39 mm steel case, complemented by a beautiful calf brown leather strap, the self-winding UN-320 manufacture movement drives the circular small seconds indicator and round date window at 6 o’clock.
The heart of the Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon is your manually wound UN 171 movement having an astonishing 170 hours (7 days) of electricity reserve beating at 2.5Hz (18,000bph). The plates and bridges of the movement are only minimally existent. This leaves the movement and tourbillon with all the silicon escapement and balance spring that the brand is known for, completely visible from the front and back of this watch.The view in the case back mirrors the flow with the rectangular frame-like bridge behind the motion. From the front, parts of the movement seem almost as if suspended in air, and also the little gears are exposed and delicate-looking. Bridges and bridges do add significant structural stability to movements, so tourbillons and skeletonized movements such as this are indeed delicate and, of course, probably best saved for performing “executive objects,” and not rock climbing or off BMXing. That said, water-resistance is 30m. All things considered – this is, in the context of the high-end watch sector – the price of this Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon Blue isn’t outrageous. The Rotonde de Cartier Flying Tourbillon, for example, is similar in a couple of ways, but is greater than twice the price tag. To get a similarly daring, contemporary kind of skeletonization and wearing experience from Roger Dubuis’ “entry” Excalibur Automatic Skeleton, again, the cost is much higher, and that is sans tourbillon. We’ve found that rolling out a ’60s-inspired dive watch in 2017 is a fairly surefire way to turn a few heads. However, if Ulysse Nardin, a brand known for complex regatta timers and Freakish innovations requires the plunge, you truly have to stop, think twice, and have a good look. For 2017, they’ve introduced the Ulysse Nardin Diver Le Locle watch, a straightforward diver having an in-house movement, silicone parts, and real vintage vibes. There’s only one question: Can it sink or swim in a sea of dive watches positioned within an exceptionally competitive price bracket? Let’s see.
