Dubai, UAE, October 7, 2017: Ulysse Nardin releases the limited edition Marine Chronometer Annual Calendar Monaco, in celebration of 9 years of loyal support for the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show.

Ulysse Nardin is proud to be the official sponsor of Monaco Yacht Show for the 9th consecutive year. The Monaco Yacht show is the world's largest mega yacht exhibition, where luxury yacht builders from around the world reveal their stunning creations. The highly-anticipated event takes place at Port Hercule in late September under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. Ulysse Nardin commemorates this incredible event with a special edition Marine Chronometer Annual Calendar Monaco, in a limited edition of 100 pieces.

The Monaco Yacht Show is an ideal opportunity for Ulysse Nardin customers to explore the glamourous, exciting world of super yachts, with the MYS a perfect partner for the Swiss watchmaker, whose seafaring heritage stretches back to 1846. The MYS is the reference exhibition in the super yacht industry. Once a year the best and most exclusive super yacht builders and nautical service providers reach out to their clientele in the picturesque setting of Port Hercule. The MYS offers Ulysse Nardin the perfect environment to highlight its expertise, innovation and seafaring DNA.

This seafaring DNA is encapsulated in the Ulysse Nardin Marine chronometer created for the prestigious event. A timepiece inspired by the historic marine chronometers upon which the reputation of Ulysse Nardin was founded, the Marine Chronometer Annual Calendar Monaco is an exquisite timepiece of impeccable pedigree, created in a limited edition of 100 pieces.

At Ulysse Nardin, the pursuit of excellence in technical avant-garde has advanced in line with the search for timekeeping simplicity. In 2016, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Marine Collection, a Marine Chronograph incorporated an annual calendar for the first time.

A mechanical annual calendar typically requires up to thirty components. But in pursuit of the principle of simplicity, Ulysse Nardin watchmakers managed to streamline the system to a mere 7 elements. Simple to use, beautiful to behold, this timepiece is the epitome of innovation in the service of practicality, as it requires a date adjustment only once a year. This achievement in purity and functionality celebrates the achievements of Ludwig Oechslin, the originator whose legacy is the quest for simplicity in even the most difficult complication.

This quest is upheld too in the UN-113 caliber, a movement – including the silicium escapement and balance spring – made entirely in-house at the Ulysse Nardin workshop. It enables the calendar date-setting both forwards and backwards – yet another simplification.

Only 100 pieces of this extraordinary timepiece exist, a fact to which the “Limited Edition” engraving on the bracelet's titanium insert can attest. With its COSC-certification, the precision self-winding movement combines the coveted annual calendar feature with a 60-hour power reserve.

A celebration of the Monaco Yacht Show is revealed in several details on the white lacquered dial with its distinctive blue Roman numeral indexes – a feature of each timepiece in Ulysse Nardin's Marine collection. A stunning tribute to the event of the year comes in the form of “Monaco 2017” inscribed on the dial. The dates of the event (27, 28, 29, 30) and the month of September are highlighted in blue, instead of black, on the date disc.

As you might expect for a timepiece with such an illustrious maritime heritage, the Marine Chronometer Annual Calendar Monaco is water resistant to 100 m, its 43 mm stainless-steel case equipped with a fluted bezel and a rubberized screw-down security crown. An anti-reflective sapphire crystal reveals the UN movement in the open case back, and a rubber strap with a folding clasp and titanium element keeps it firmly in place.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer Annual Calendar Monaco and the Monaco Yacht Show. For all those who embrace the power of the sea, this is a match made in yachting heaven.
