Spectacular watches. I have two 43mm UN marine chronometer manufacture watches. Brown face, two tone rose gold and stainless with gold rubber strap and silver face, stainless with black rubber strap. They are absolutely beautiful and work well even for a small wrist which I have.
Any comparative review or test/scoring report on this Ulysse Nardin’s new Marine Chronometer Manufacture?
What a stunning timepiece! Surely this has got to hold value?
I love it too :)
I purchased the 1183-122-42, the stainless steel version, with the leather strap. It is so beautiful :D The case, leather folder of the COSC and Ulysse Nardin’s performance certificate, and passport size wallet are nice too. I am so happy to get this nice timepiece :D
