Why Choose Watches in Switzerland

Reasons for choosing a Ulysse Nardin watch reach into the depths and heights of the human experience. The love of owning a well-made and beautiful item for the most intimate, personal use. The joy of imbuing a pedestrian gesture – checking the time – with the thrill that comes from viewing an object so exceptionally well made. The excitement of having something in your collection that is perfect – just perfect – for certain occasions or particular company that call for a subtle message. And, of course, it’s a Ulysse Nardin, so it makes a statement. The statement it makes is that you may be eccentric, but you’re extremely successful at it.

You wouldn’t consider anything other than a Swiss watch by a tried and tested watchmaker, and Ulysse Nardin fills the bill; the company was founded in 1846 and has been breaking barriers and creating innovative timepieces ever since. Introduced just after the turn of the century in 2001, the Ulysse Nardin Freak was the first watch to use an escapement with silicon (or “silicium” as the company calls it), to address lubrication issues, and an unconventional time display without benefit of dial or hands. You may also desire the latest innovations in timepieces. That will lead you to the new Ulysse Nardin Freak Lab, introduced in 2015. It will be immediately recognizable because it is the first in the Freak series to have a basic date display. Any eye for detail will discover it, discretely placed at the 4 o’clock position, displaying the current date indicated by a red pointer, flanked by yesterday’s and tomorrow’s.

Ulysse Nardin timepieces are the obvious choice for the collector, the connoisseur, and perhaps the unconventional. They are the choice for the lover of innovation who wishes to pay homage to truly successful creativity that has been sustained for over a century and a half. You may be hard to please. You may be difficult to impress. But as you go about your business – a business that includes original thought and daring discernments – there’s one phrase that will catch your interest and your eye. It may be in an ad that pops up in the corner of some screen, or in the fine grey print of a discreet, esoteric newspaper on the bedside table in a small but elegant hotel. Wherever it finds you, it gives you pause. The phrase in question? “Ulysse Nardin Watches for sale.”
