As you can see in the image above, the new Marine Torpilleur Monaco Yacht Show holds true to the dial layout of previous iterations and marine timekeepers. This limited edition isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel, after all. If you are familiar with previous Marine Torpilleur models, you will no doubt recognize the similarities with watches of the past. This newest model features a grand feu enamel dial, contrasting grey sub-dials (power reserve and sub-seconds) and the red text within “09.19” and “Monaco Yacht Show.” While I would prefer not to have any written text on a dial, some will undoubtedly enjoy the street cred that comes with such an event.
The watch is powered by the UN-118 manufacture movement, which is an automatic-winding caliber featuring a power reserve of 60 hours and a silicon escapement. The screw-down crown is engraved with the UN logo, and the date aperture pops with a red 25, 26, 27, and 28 (the dates of the show). The elongated blue Roman numerals and graceful, pear-shaped steel hands are suave and clearly Ulysse Nardin at a glance.
