The 44mm case is crafted from red gold in the style of the Marine Torpilleur, the highly successful collection that Ulysse Nardin launched in 2017. Its thin yet charismatic bezel gives center stage to a dial unlike any other. It shows the bow of a superyacht plowing through waves created through grand feu enamel. This highly complex dial is just one aspect that commands attention. To stay in the theme, the flying tourbillon is the shape of a ship’s propellor, with the power reserve indicator displayed as an anchor. The details are extraordinary and life-like, bringing the Ulysse Nardin Mega Yacht on a level of its own.
Ulysse Nardin is a pioneer in the field of tide watches, and also this timepiece displays this natural phenomenon, showing both the tidal volumes as coefficients. In addition is also the moon, the earth’s satellite responsible for the tidal movements, prominently present on the dial. Thanks to ultra-precise engraving, the two half spheres represent the planet in great detail. It is one of the 504 parts that make up the manufacture caliber in this Ulysse Nardin. Keen on getting the experience as realistic as possible, part of the gear train responsible for winding the watch is visible at twelve o’clock. It has been created to look like a miniature windlass, further strengthening the connection with its nautical counterpart. When fully wound, the Ulysse Nardin Mega Yacht offers a power reserve of a generous 80-hours, plenty of time to wind down for a nice cruise through the Caribbean or Mediterranean.
