Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Chronograph, Chronometer Watch Review

Updated on January 6, 2015

Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine

Both Maxi Marine chronometer and chronograph exhibit a classically designed dial – an allusion to Ulysse Nardin pocket watch traditions. Additionally, both lines feature the same distinctive pair of hands, spades for the hours and diamonds for the minutes – but this is where the similarities end. Maxi chronometers complement their regular counterparts by introducing Arabic numerals, large and easily legible, whereas the chronographs – the more complicated timepieces – continue to rely on Roman markers, leaving the other kind for the chrono function and the tachymeter scale.

Materials include rose gold, stainless steel, rubber, and anthracite. All watches are water resistant up to 200 meters, and feature a screwed type crown (and pushers in the case of the chronograph), rendering them safe in sea environment.

Maxi Marine chronometer watches contain several enhancements in comparison to their regular Marine brethren. The crown has been provided with protective lugs, more strap variations have been added, and, a new, less orthodox color scheme has been introduced into the design. Deep, glowing blues and browns make the faces underlying yet powerful sources of energy.

Power reserve subdial at twelve o'clock indicate for how many hours of the maximum forty two the watch can continue functioning; the display is divided into quarters. All timers carry the number 1846 above the date aperture – when the brand issued its first marine chronometer.


Chronographs entertain the eye with a similar color scheme, with the addition of light peach and dark gray. The colors interact well with the usually deep blue hands. Though two subdials at three and nine o'clock appear linked to the chrono function, only one of them is: it's the additional central thin hand that measures time for the complication mechanism.

Some of these chronographs reveal vague similarities to pieces made by F.P. Journe, a relatively small high-end watchmaker with strong preference for green shades. The resemblance, though interesting, is rather abstract.
