Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur Military Semper Fortis | Pre-Owned
The Limited Edition Ulysses Nardin's Marine Torpilleur Military watch seems to have come straight out of the barracks: casual, comfortable and as minimalist as the torpedo ships that lent them their name. 44mm dial and UN-118 Manufacture movement. Limited to 173 Pieces.
"Semper Fortis" (Always Courageous), an unofficial motto of the United States Navy, inspired the Marine Torpilleur Military 'Semper Fortis' timepiece. A magnificent representative of the brand's origins and continued prowess - the watch is a guardian of marine history and a modern archetype inspired by its ancestors.
Using design cues from the original 1905 chronometer, the watch includes many of the same features including a polished shiny steel case, an oversized crown, roman numerals, and a large second hand for readability.
The pioneering partnership between Ulysse NArdin and U.S. Navy began in the early 1900s, when the Washington Naval Observatory organized a competition for 'Precision Torpedo Boat Timepieces.' The goal of the competition was to supply the Navy with the best available onboard chronometers. The timepieces, given to superior naval offices, were meant to provide the torpedo boats & first submarines with a timekeeping precision as accurate and reliable as those on the largest naval vessels. Ulysse Nardin won the competition many times over and became the official supplier of the American Navy.
By invitation from the U.S. Secretary of the Navy, Ulysse Nardin attended the 2018 Congressional Medal of Honor Convention organized for the first time at the prestigious Naval Academy in Annapolis. Ulysse Nardin is proud to have partnered with the Medal of Honor Society, to honor the heroes of past and present who have demonstrated bravery, gallantry and sacrifice above and beyond the call of duty. A perfect setting for unveiling a limited edition timepiece made for America.
