Ulysse Nardin is the company that has registered the largest number of patents over its more than 170 years of history since it was founded in 1846. Among these patents is that of numerous chronographs, one of which is the present lot. The main peculiarity of the wristwatch is the coded lugs which give a perfectly circular shape to the case, for this reason sometimes called affectionately “flying saucer”. The chronograph pushers, which confer symmetry and elegance, are completed by the pretty oversized crown at 3 o’clock. The subtle hands and indexes with Arabic numerals, both in yellow gold, stand out remarkably, marrying perfectly with the dial that presents a fascinating patina due to aging while the black color still alive on the tachymeter scale acts as a boundary like an involuntary frame.
