Ulysse Nardin Watches
This prestigious watchmaker has been in business for more than 170 years. Ulysse Nardin was born in 1823, and like his father before him, he trained as a "remonteur" and started his successful career in watchmaking from the ground up by working in watch assembly rather than watchmaking in the truest sense of the word. He started his business at a young age, and at the age of 23, he established it at Le Locle, the heart of the Swiss watchmaking industry in Jura, Switzerland. In the last 170 years, Ulysse Nardin has established its distinctive position in the field of high horology, also known as "Haute Horlogerie," which is renowned for creating the intricate mechanical timepieces that watch collectors and aficionados adore. Additionally, they come with an exceptional 5-year warranty, which attests to their durability and high quality.
They are a part of the Kering S.A. luxury conglomerate, which has its headquarters in Paris, France. This luxury conglomerate also owns other businesses, including Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Alexander McQueen, and many other well-known premium labels. Their stores around the world, including the most recent one in Geneva, sell their watches.
For their extremely precise Marine Chronometers, this watchmaker garnered a lot of praise. Ship captains employed these mechanical timekeepers because they depended on their accuracy to time and execute their moves exactly and flawlessly. Only the most precise timepieces now carry the label "chronometer," which has become a standard. The watch must maintain a minimum accuracy of -4/+6 seconds per day in deviation, which is extremely accurate for a mechanical wristwatch, in order to keep the status of a Chronometer and the designation from COSC known as a COSC certificate attesting to its accuracy.
By battling electromagnetic frequencies, the most infamous enemy of a mechanical timepiece's accuracy, they produced important inventive improvements in watchmaking. This was accomplished by using cutting-edge antimagnetic materials like silicon and alloys called DIAMonSIL, produced by Sigatec using nanotechnology, which combines silicon's antimagnetic qualities with diamonds' strength. Therefore, they are actually quite accurate, especially their certified chronometers that go through a 15-day testing period at COSC.
