Ulysse Nardin is the independent and integrated Swiss manufacture powered by unbounded imagination, crafting cutting-edge timepieces for free-spirited watch collectors since 1846.

A maverick, a visionary, a pioneer. Ulysse Nardin, the founder of the Manufacture, was all three.

From the mountains of Le Locle, where the Manufacture stays anchored today, Ulysse Nardin combined his passion for ocean exploration and horological excellence to create the world’s most awarded and precise marine chronometers. But this was just the beginning.

« If it’s possible, it’s done. If it’s impossible, it will be done ». These words from Paul-David Nardin, also a pioneer in his own right, are no rhetoric and echo his father’s enduring legacy.

Twisting the boundaries of watchmaking with innovative technologies and disruptive materials, challenging horology conventions, combining creative and mechanical experimentation…: exploring the impossible has always been at the core of Ulysse Nardin.

This singular expression in Haute Horlogerie was epitomized in 2001 with the launch of the first and only watch with no dial, no crown and no hands, aptly named the Freak. A revolutionary icon which also ushered silicon into watchmaking, paving the way for incredible precision and reliability, across the industry.

This creative freedom is fueled by the artisans of Ulysse Nardin. Combining almost 180 years of in-house mechanical and artistic savoir-faire, they stand for the singularity of their craft and defend sustainable values. This strong heritage lives across four collections: Freak, Blast, Marine and Diver.

As part of the first collective of independent watchmaking manufactures, with its sister company Girard-Perregaux, Ulysse Nardin opens new horizons for the entire industry through its very own vision of Haute Horlogerie. With a twist.
