An icon in high horology, particularly in its historic relationship with marine navigation, Ulysse Nardin is pleased, once again, to partake in this unsurpassed event that attracts a global community of yachting authorities and enthusiasts. From September 21-24, the 21st Monaco Yacht Show, with the support of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, will play host to yachting experts, leading luxury professionals and astute procurers at Port Hercules, making it the most important industry event of the year. Surrounded by the breathtaking natural scenery of Monaco, visitors will experience 100 exceptional super and mega-yachts presented by the most renowned brokers and shipyards in the world.

Ulysse Nardin will reveal a limited-edition Monaco 2011 Executive Dual Time.
The Monaco 2011 is a limited-edition collection of 100 pieces that echoes the regal lifestyle of the Principality of Monaco. Engineered with the Ulysse Nardin patented Dual Time system and conveying a modern aesthetic with classically refined characteristics, the Monaco 2011 is fitting for the watch connoisseur who seeks unparalleled precision and considers dressing a form of art and strong self-expression.

The timepiece’s bold blue dial, bezel and strap mirror the mystery and magic of the great depths of the ocean. Its streamlined stainless steel case evokes the essence of a yacht cutting through the water. Oversized Roman numerals, three-dimensional hands and a boldly sized date allow for ease in time tracking, always keeping the avid yachtsman on schedule for the most important events. Its sleek bezel and plus and minus pushers at the eight and ten o’clock position, are crafted in ceramic – one of the most innovative and imperishable materials used in watchmaking today. From underneath its protective sapphire-crystal cover, the self-winding movement mechanism can be seen. Nestled below the hands is a traditional, oversized small-seconds register at the six o’clock position, as well as a boldly sized date in a double window at two o’clock, presenting points of interest.

As craftsmanship in yacht building advances through technology, so does watchmaking. Conquering the oceans with its precision instruments for 165 years, Ulysse Nardin continues its journey of innovation, guiding yachtsmen on the water and into the future with its state-of-the-art mechanical timepieces.
