Extending their famed marine chronometers for the feminine half, Ulysse Nardin introduces the Lady Marine Chronometer

The maritime life is no longer an exclusive men's club as the women now say ahoy with the best of them. In a bid to even the gender scales in nautical haute horlogerie, Ulysse Nardin unveils the new Lady Marine Chronometer — a stylish seafaring beauty that stands out among the gents.

Just like the woman whose wrist it graces, the Lady Marine is a liberated soul; smart, successful and gorgeous. Combining the best of polished class and performance with a groundbreaking UN-118 Calibre that possesses a self-winding, in-house movement, this innovative calibre utilises silicium technology with its date calendar for easy forwards and backwards adjustment. Belying its powerhouse of a complication, the Lady Marine Chronometer flashes an understated elegance in six variations — including two stunning diamond-studded pieces — sized at 39mm in either stainless steel or 18K rose gold. Redesigned from earlier marine chronometer models, it now carries a sporty aesthetic twined with its classic silhouette. A gleaming mother-of-pearl dial anchors the timepiece with a delicate touch, highlighting the 60-hour power reserve indicator and the seconds counter curved within sleek circles.

Beyond its distinct feminine charms, it is a marine timepiece tailored for the high seas, waterproofed with a rubberised screw-crown for the capability to shield against added stress and damage, in addition to a water resistance of up to 100 metres. Luxurious and worldly, the Ulysse Nardin Lady Marine Chronometer skims the oceans in true cutting-edge feminine fashion.

The Lady Marine Chronometer is available at the Ulysse Nardin boutique.
