Ulysse Nardin’s 100-piece limited edition Marine Torpilleur Monaco Yacht Show was unveiled at Monaco Yacht Show. The brand is the official sponsor of the show which welcomed lovers of sumptuous yachts, incredible destinations and luxury getaways in Port Hercules.
This year, 125 superyachts were on display in Port Hercules under the Côte d’Azur sun, as well as nearly forty luxury tenders. Ulysse Nardin’s official sponsorship of the MYS offers the Swiss luxury watch manufacture the perfect showcase to unveil its expertise, innovation, and DNA—all deeply rooted in its nautical heritage.
“Ulysse Nardin’s long nautical heritage makes the full meaning of this partnership clear. The MYS and Ulysse Nardin shares a passion for the sea, for luxury, for precision and the quest for innovation. We are extremely proud to join forces with Monaco Yacht Show for the 11th consecutive year,” said Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Ulysse Nardin.
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 28 in red to highlight the dates of the show.
