As mentioned before, nautical elements abound, but in a discreet way: the “home time” aperture at 9 o’clock is surrounded by a thick beveled bezel, giving the impression of a porthole. The date aperture mimics this detailing, however to less charm. While the date numerals are large and legible, the aperture sits too close to the Ulysse Nardin logo, making for a cluttered meeting point.
