Inspired by the innovative game changers who have gone above and beyond to revolutionise the norms, the Ulysse Nardin brand looks to the sea and the skies when it comes to manufacturing their gorgeous timepieces. Ulysse Nardin, the founder, launched the company in 1846 having worked many years as an apprentice horologist under the keen eye of his father. In Le Locle, the town in Switzerland where the founder was born, residents faced snow filled winters and would be forced to rely on their watches to survive. Farming alone could not bring in an income, and so to supplement their incomes during the dark winter months, they turned to making watches. During his time working with his father, Nardin perfected his skills and went on to further improve his craftsmanship by working under two other master watchmakers. At the age of just 23, he would found his own company, named after himself, in Le Locle. The town remains the headquarters for this company that has now gained a legendary status among watch makers the world over.
In 1876, the company was taken over by Nardin’s son, and continued to expand its operations. Winning awards from the Paris Universal Exhibition and the Chicago Universal Exhibition, as well as being awarded two patents, the company gained international attention. By 1902, the company was manufacturing marine chronometers for the US Navy and then it also became the official supplier for the US Navy’s torpedo boats. Ulysse Nardin has also created timepieces for the Japanese, Russian, UK and USA navies, cementing their reputation for being the marine watch experts.
While the watch has been featured on the wrists of countless athletes, explorers, artists, and of course, army and navy officials, the designs look just as good in the boardroom as they do out into the wide blue yonder. Ulysse Nardin seeks to encourage those who sport their brand to look beyond themselves, to dare to dream.
