Athens, Switzerland Original Navigation Observatory Watch

Ulysse Nardin stands alone and is proud of its heroes-with the enamel technology and UN-118 movement, it perfectly displays the art of watchmaking and excellent precision. Since the rise of international trade in the 19th century, Athens Watch has always been committed to the creation and development of nautical observatory timepieces, so that captains and their valuable cargo can always maintain precise voyages. The UN-118 movement has been continuously improved since it was first introduced in 2011, and has become the core of the design of 2012 marine astronomical watches. The case diameter of the new original marine astronomical watch has been expanded to 45 mm. The newly designed crown is easy to operate and the rubber dents make the winding more comfortable. In addition, the new original nautical astronomical watch has even more enviable innovations-for example, the dial uses a beautifully enamel dial hand-made by the globally recognized enamel dial expert and the latest member of the Athens Watch Group. Mastering this exquisite and complex enamel decoration process depends entirely on the personal acuity and daily practice of the craft master. The superb craftsmanship that has been handed down for centuries is evident on Athens watches. The dial of the original nautical astronomical watch is beautiful and dazzling. The black Roman numerals and rough cherry red intersect with the white background color, showing an intuitive and interesting style. The bezel in 18K rose gold reinforces the precision of the watch. The UN-118 movement further reflects the whimsy of Athenian in the field of watchmaking. This self-winding movement is entirely conceived and manufactured by Athenian, and is now used in original marine astronomical watches. The movement continues to advance the use of new materials and technologies in Athenian watches
    The standard anchor escapement in the UN-118 movement is made using the unique and innovative DiamonSil (the perfect synthesis of diamond silicon crystal, synthetic diamond and silicon) of the Athenian watch, and promotes innovative cooperation with Sigatec. The UN-118 movement proves the perfect fusion of etching technology between silicon and diamond-coated silicon (DCS), becoming the first innovative series machine to accommodate the DiamonSil anchor escapement, and the Athens watch’s own balance wheel and patented hairspring. Core one. This movement has an excellent 60-hour kinetic energy reserve display and an oversized small seconds indicator, and the date is displayed at 6 o’clock. It also has the ‘Quick Set’ feature that Athenaeum prides itself on, allowing you to quickly adjust the date forward / backward. The marine astronomical watch 18K rose gold model is limited to 350 pieces worldwide. In addition, you can also choose a non-limited edition: including a two-tone titanium case with a gold bezel and crown, and a stainless steel / titanium case. From enamel art to precision manufacturing and design, Athenaeum showcases the perfect combination of art and innovation through nautical astronomical watches, leading the company to sail in a maverick way, and to stand out from the crowd.
