Technology is driving the world at unfathomable speed. For watchmaking manufacture Ulysse Nardin, it has captained its course for almost two centuries. Calculating the waning and waxing of the moon to harness time and tides with exactitude, Ulysse Nardin changed how the world told time. Innovation upon innovation, it steers the craft into the future, marrying the age-old art of Haute Horlogerie with transformative technology, astounding with breakthrough performance and original design.
Founded in 1846 by 23-year-old Ulysse Nardin, the brand that bears his name carries on his entrepreneurial spirit, always thinking about the next great development. Trained as a complicated watch specialist, Ulysse Nardin had his sights set on a sparkling horizon. He started his business in his birthplace of Le Locle, Switzerland, situated in the Swiss Jura, home to the specialized watchmaking industry. Over the decades, Ulysse Nardin secured 4,300-plus watchmaking awards, 18 of which are gold medals.
Ulysse Nardin pursues its innovative course with its three fundamentals as a guiding constellation. Firstly, ever more independence of spirit, continue to develop and manufacture an increasing number of components, movements and timepieces in-house. Secondly, while it already holds a great number of patents in mechanical watch-making, the company continues too in its quest for technical avant-garde, pushing back the limits of design, engineering and technology. And finally, the watchmaker upholds its heritage of craft, celebrating the savoir-faire of the centuries through its métiers d’art – enameling, miniature painting – and through the enduring skill of its talented watchmakers.
