WHO THEY ARE Founded in 1846, Ulysse Nardin was run by five gen­er­a­tions of the Nardin fam­ily un­til its ac­qui­si­tion by watch­maker Rolf W Sch­ny­der in 1983. CLAIM TO FAME In 1985, its Astro­labium Galileo Galilei watch from the Tril­ogy of Time se­ries be­came the first watch with a fea­ture to re­flect the po­si­tion of the

sun, moon and stars – it en­tered the Guin­ness Book of World Records in 1989. The Freak (Watch of the Year 2003), with­out hands and crown, is one of the most iconic mod­els in horo­log­i­cal his­tory, as well as for the brand. WHAT’S HOT The Jade col­lec­tion, which runs on the au­to­matic Cal­i­bre UN-310, the brand’s first move­ment cre­ated for women. It fea­tures a pusher that changes the func­tion of the crown, so that the user can set the time or wind the watch with­out hav­ing to pull out the crown.
