Watches and Wonders 2022: Hands on review on the Ulysse Nardin Blast Moonstruck.

Avatar
amanico
For 2022, Ulysse Nardin decided to unveil the third opus of the Moonstruck which was born in 2009. First in rose gold, the, a bit later, in platinum: The 2009 Moonstruck was a simpler approach ( simpler in the fact it is less complicated to understand ) of an astronomical watch, compared to the Tellurium, the Astrolabium and the Planetarium which were born from Mr Oeschlin's genius mind in... 1992. Here is an extract of the press file from 2009: The first opus depicts " the rotation of the moon around the .....Story

Watches and Wonders 2022: A review on the new Ulysse Nardin Freak S.

Avatar
amanico
Aaah, the Freak... Here we are facing an Horological UFO which was born in 2001, a real stroke of genius from Ulysse Nardin, a watch which was and still is unique in its kind. The original Freak on its way to meet the " S " Sister: Frankly speaking, I consider all the versions from 2001 to the latest one, the Freak S, as real Freaks, with the exception of one, issued in 2019, the Freak X. Let's first remember what a Freak is: It is a watch without hands, without a dial nor a crown and with a Carousel movement, .....Story

After our Girard Perregaux Roll Call, let's now have one about Ulysse Nardin, the watches we have, the watches we had and those we are dreaming about... I had a strong relation with Ulysse Nardin for a bit more than 20 years, now. I was able to get some, such as: The Sonata: The Freak, The GMT Perpetual: Gone but not forgotten: The Monopusher, sadly gone, The 160: The San Marco GMT, gifted to my wife, And this beautiful Vintage Chronograph from 1942: All these Ulysse Nardin represent something very strong ... ...Story

Ulysse Nardin Sonata: 17th birthday!

Avatar

I still cannot realize that one day,in a few years, now, it will become a vintage. This watch is so timelessly modern! 17 years ago, it was an UHO ( Unidentified Horological Object ). What? An alarm watch which sounds like a minute Repeater? On 24 hours? With a 24 hours alarm countdown? Which you can set to the minute? With a grande date and a second time zone you can set forward and backward??? There was nothing like the Sonata at that time, in 2003 when it was unveiled, and still nowadays, the only existing ... ...Story

There are few watches in my collection I remember the exact day, month and year of their purchase. The Sonata is part of them. I even remember, one year before, its announcement on the watch fora, and especially, our website. This day, on the 23rd of July 2020, it will be 16 years-yes, you read well- 16 years that I own it...Story

Ulysse Nardin Sonata 15th Birthday.

Avatar

Now, that is an Anniversary which counts as much as it surprises me to see how well this watch ages, all along or despite all these years. Well, the only thing which shows its age is the case, in my opinion, but for the rest, it is a kind of horological Dorian Gray, an eternal youth. I am still puzzled and in awe when I admire it, when I put it on my wrist. Its dial is very much my taste, as well as its controversial hands which are loved or hated, but which don't let anybody indifferent...Story

SIHH 2019: Ulysse Nardin

Avatar
foversta
Ulysse Nardin was in my opinion one of the most convincing brands of the last SIHH. It has indeed managed to offer attractive new products while maintaining a certain pricing moderation, thus pursuing a strategic orientation initiated in recent years. This successful cocktail of audacity and reason can be summed up in one letter: X. X as Freak X...Story

I already wrote that... You remember the first moments of ownership of some watches in a very accurate way. This is the case for my Breguet Type XX Platinum, Salmon dial, for my Patek 5110P, for my Jaeger Lecoultre Master Minute Repeater, Reverso Septantième and Duometre à Chronographe, for the Polaris 1965, and, among others, my Ulysse Nardin Sonata. In 14 years, I had the time to live many, good or bad, moments with that Sonata...Story
