Hailing from Le Locle, Ulysse Nardin are particularly well known for their bold designs such as the ground-breaking ’Freak’.

HANDS-ON: The Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton X in Carbonium Gold

With a name that sounds like it comes straight from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it should come as no surprise that the watch looks more than a little out of this world.  First of all there's the dial — or rather the lack of it. Because as you might guess with a name like "Skeleton X", the dial of this watch is pretty extensively open-worked, offering the wearer a beautifully worked gear train, as well as a whole lot of negative…

6 milestones / gifting occasions that you should buy a watch for (that also make good excuses to buy for yourself)

Personally, I don't need an excuse to buy a watch for myself. But I have, many times, used certain milestones as justification for a purchase whenever they have come under scrutiny. So whether or not you genuinely want to buy a timepiece to commemorate a special time in your life, or whether you just want a decent excuse to present to your family/partner/colleagues when you admit that the huge withdrawal from your savings account wasn't fraud, read on.  Graduation/Coming of age…

VIDEO: Ulysse Nardin's 2019 releases prove they're ready for anything

On the off chance that you're not, Ulysse Nardin is a brand you should be paying attention to. There's a real energy around the Le Locle-based manufacture – all the burners are firing.

Like the new Freak X, a technically toned down take…

INTRODUCING: The Ulysse Nardin Freak X, more accessible, but still freaky

Over the last few years, Ulysse Nardin has been greatly expanding its Freak family (a smart move say I), and the latest member is the Freak X, which joins the Freak Out and Freak Vision. Now, before we break down this watch, a quick word about X, which is serving as something of a thematic moniker for the brand this year. It's a good theme, evoking everything from mystery to gravity to (depending on how many Xs you use) eroticism.…

HANDS-ON: Even sportier, the Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer Torpilleur in blue 

It's fair to say that there's a fresh new breeze blowing in Ulysse Nardin's sails these days. There's a new energy, which has resulted in some great new designs, and refreshed takes on old classics. Case in point is the Torpilleur, a marine chronometer styled watch, which takes its name — appropriately enough — from agile torpedo boats. It's a watch we've looked at before, but the latest configuration is, if you'll pardon my colloquialism, freaking hot. The blue dial…
