This year, the Monaco Yacht Show (September 25–28) once again welcomes lovers of sumptuous yachts, incredible destinations and luxury getaways in Port Hercules. To celebrate its partnership with the most prestigious yacht show in the world, Ulysse Nardin, official sponsor of the show, presents its new arrival in a limited edition of 100 pieces: the Marine Torpilleur Monaco Yacht Show.
Showcasing its expertise, Ulysse Nardin adorns its MARINE TORPILLEUR MONACO YACHT SHOW LIMITED EDITION with a Grand Feu enamel dial. The watchmaker enjoys the mastery of this craft within its own corporate structure thanks to Donzé Cadrans, owned by Ulysse Nardin, which produces enamel dials in keeping with the purest traditions.
The Marine Torpilleur timepieces take their name from torpedo ships, small and very agile old vessels used in the 19th century. Perfectly suited to modern city life, the Marine Torpilleur is at once extremely comfortable on the wrist and pleasing to the eye. A true captain’s chronometer certified by the COSC and Ulysse Nardin, it embodies the best of contemporary watchmaking design and the peak of craftsmanship and expertise going back several generations.
Elegant, elongated blue roman numerals and graceful pear-shaped steel hands indicate the hours. The screwed-down crown is engraved with the Ulysse Nardin logo. At 6 o’clock, on the small seconds subdial, lie the date aperture and the inscriptions “Monaco Yacht Show” and “09.19” in red, a reminder of the annual event held in the principality. The date aperture reveals the numbers 25, 26, 27 and 28in red to highlight the dates of the show. The timepiece rests on a blue alligator strap with white ‘point-de-bride’ stitches—a final nod to the nautical world.
The watch is driven by the UN-118 Manufacture movement. This automatic-winding caliber, featuring a power reserve of 60 hours (indicated by a subdial at 12 o’clock) and equipped with a silicon anchor escapement, is a gem entirely designed by the Maison.
