Continuing the famous chronometer predecessors of the Ulysse Nardin brand with the Ulysse Nardin Executive watch model, the luxury watch label focuses on very diverse and always valuable and noble materials. Crocodile leather, stainless steel as well as rubber and gold are components of the distinctive watch straps. The watch manufacturer predominantly uses titanium, gold and stainless steel for the cases of the luxury watches from Ulysse Nardin. The dials of the Ulysse Nardin Executive collection are available in silver, white as well as black and blue, for example. Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, water resistance to a maximum depth of 200 meters, and screw-down crowns are technical details or functions that distinguish the Ulysse Nardin luxury watches from the Executive series.

Versatile and elegantly designed - the luxury watches from Ulysse Nardin
Featuring a skeletonized dial, the Ulysse Nardin Skeleton Tourbillon model Executive is a real eye-catcher on the wrist among the luxury watches from Ulysse Nardin. Wearers of this Ulysse Nardin Executive can fully observe the manufacture caliber UN-171 including tourbillon (at 6 o'clock) on both sides of the case through the sapphire crystal. The movement, which is also essentially skeletonized, is exclusively hand-wound, features silicon technology, and has a 170-hour power reserve. The Executive is also equipped with an eye-catching bridge centered on the caliber. Also crafted in modern materials such as ceramic and titanium, the cases are a generous 45 millimeters in diameter. As a result, Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon luxury watches weigh only 83.50 grams. The timepiece is also water resistant to 30 meters (3 bar). However, this model of the Ulysse Nardin Executive series also features typical details of the Executive collection, such as sword-shaped hands and large Roman numerals. The strap here is made of leather in carbon structure with a folding clasp made of ceramic.
Changing between different time zones in a matter of seconds - Ulysse Nardin Executive
Another model from the Ulysse Nardin Executive collection is the Dual Time model. In 1994, the Ulysse Nardin manufacture developed the GMT+ (world time watch), which can change forward and backward within two time zones in seconds due to its sophisticated technology. By means of plus/minus correction, the hour hand can be precisely guided to the desired local time without taking off the Executive. The minute hand is not affected. This model Executive from Ulysse Nardin is water-resistant to 100 depth meters. The Ulysse Nardin label has created a masculine timepiece of 43 millimeters with its Executive Dual Time series. A rectangular design element centered on the dial also makes the Executive appear much larger. The eye-catching detail is only interrupted by a totalizer and the date field. The practical quick time change is made possible by a caliber UN-24. The caliber is equipped with a self-winding mechanism.
Modern history - luxury watches from Ulysse Nardin
The watch manufacture was founded in the small town of Le Locle (Canton of Neuchâtel/Switzerland) in 1846, and now, after a fateful history, it is one of the most important brands of luxury watches. Unfortunately, the founder Ulysse Nardin did not live to see his dream of worldwide fame come true. The fate of the label was taken over by Paul David, his son. He changed the assortment from pocket watches to precision marine chronometers. The timepieces were so accurate that they were even adopted by the US Navy in their naval equipment. Eventually, Switzerland was isolated in 1942, causing tariffs to rise enormously. Other companies had already begun to make copies of the excellent marine clocks by this time. But no one reached the precision of the Ulysse Nardin brand.
