Ulysse Nardin was founded in 1846 in Le Locle, Switzerland, by Ulysse Nardin. They moved to their rue Jardin premises in 1865 where they still manufacture watches today. Designing the world's first-ever marine chronometer. Winning many awards in deck watches, chronometers and wristwatches. In 1983 the company was taken over by Rolf W. Schnyder. After his death, the company in 2014 joined the Kering’s Group.

This Ulysse Nardin has shocked me and many of those who have seen it! Unfortunately, Ulysse Nardin are responsible for some not so great watches in recent years, but they are a brand with a serious heritage and history and the capabilities to make incredible watches on par with the very best out there, this is a testament to that. I personally adore this Ulysse Nardin and would happily add one to my personal collection one day.
