Ulysse Nardin is one of the most renowned watch manufacturers among collectors for its elegance and ability to create unique mechanisms. In all horology’s history 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 this wristwatch are the fluted hooded decorative lugs which in addition to embellishing the entire 18k yellow gold case nicely preserved, they seem to raise it like a pedestal. The square chronograph pushers, which confer symmetry and elegance, are completed by the pretty discreet crown at 3 o’clock. The caliber equipped is a 14″ nickel-finished. The argentè dial has the two classical subsidiary dials for constant seconds and 30 minutes registration, the applied arabic numerals and the two subtile hands while the main peculiarity is that is surrounded by a 200 pulse graduated scale, a rarity to find on these watches.
