NOUVEAUTÉS -Edition limitée à 300 pièces
The idea with the Marine Torpilleurwas to offer the undeniable charm of the Marine Chronometer watches in a more contemporary-looking 42mm case (no more integrated lug module), with the typical dial layout of such watches and a more accessible price – in fact, positioning itself as the entry-level watch of the brand, even though it still featured a nice in-house movement. Altogether, this was a tasteful facelift to the Marine collection and finally a decent price tag attached to it.
For 2019, the brand introduces two new limited editions, each offered in 300 pieces, as a tribute to Ulysse Nardin’s military heritage. While the basics of the Torpilleur Military have been respected, these new models being visual updates with new colours and new materials.
The Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Military Bronze. Its 44mm case, still matte with a sandblasted finish and a super-slim bezel, is made of the trendiest material in the watch world today: bronze. Gold-ish on these images, it will gain patina over time and change colour, which perfectly suits the military theme of this watch.
The bronze case of the Marine Torpilleur Military is paired with a matte blue dial, with white Arabic numerals and gold-coloured hands. To avoid any risk of allergies, the caseback is made of steel and is stamped with a torpedo ship. It comes with a blue leather strap for a casual look.
