Ulysse Nardin Dual Time UN-334 Manufacture (Ref. 3346-126) Swiss

This new dressy Ulysse Nardin Dual Time Manufacture radically differs from previous iterations. The difference, of course, is not limited to just styling of its case and dial: while its numerous predecessors were equipped with Caliber UN-24, which is basically an inexpensive ETA 2892-A2 movement with an add-on module, this particular timekeeper that was presented at Baselworld 2014 trade show is equipped with their own UN-334 Manufacture mechanism. As the name implies, the movement is crafted solely in-house.

Ulysse Nardin Black Toro Perpetual Calendar + GMT Swiss

With its new Ulysse Nardin Black Toro Perpetual Calendar + GMT, the Swiss watchmaking house expands its "Toro" line of ultra-luxury sporty watches with a model that features a very appealing combination of matte and glossy black of its dial and strap with polished rose gold body.

Ulysse Nardin Sonata Streamline in Titanium (ref. 675-00) Swiss

Preserving its functionality and general layout, the new Ulysse Nardin Sonata Streamline (ref. 675-00) features a slightly upgraded automatic movement with a mechanical alarm module. There is also an absolutely stunning -though some may call it kitschy- exterior appearance with the satin-finished titanium accented with a glossy ceramic bezel and polished rose gold crowns and push-pieces. Yet, to many of us the most interesting part of this watch is not the color scheme or the combination of materials, but the gorgeous -both in its complexity and finish- Caliber UN-67 self-movement that the Swiss-based brand designed and manufactured at their own production facilities.

Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Monaco Limited Edition Swiss

Okay, here goes yet another limited edition version of the sporty UN Marine Diver.

The watch doesn't differ too much from other Marine Divers, so I'll be brief.
