Swiss company Ulysee Nardin was founded in 1846 where it coincided with the epoch of the navigation might. In the era of the navigation might, tremendous courage and perseverance still couldn’t fully resist fear of the sea. Apart from depending on the sun and horizon to identify the course, what navigators needed most was an absolutely accurate chronometer in order to calculate orientation. And the nautical chronometer of Ulysee Nardin, famous for its accurate performance could calculate to the half second, and could calculate the exact longitude and latitude of ship in the sea. In the middle of the 18th century, only chronometers honored with the observatory authentication could measure with the precision necessary. The chronometer of Ulysee Nardin was one that had stood the rigorous checks and gained the observatory authentication after being sent to the observatory of Neuchatel Switzerland and the observatory of Geneva for test. During one and a half centuries of development in navigation, Ulysee Nardin was famous all over the world and highly respected because of its achievement of observatory watch-makings. The navies from more than 50 countries used the Athenian navigation watches as the appointed nautical appropriative instruments.
Ulysee Nardin was born in Leloche Switzerland on January 22, 1823. When he was young, his father Leonard Frederic taught him the technology of watch-craft, then, he followed the contemporary watch master William Dubois for learning. The company of Athens was founded in 1846.
Ulysee Nardin was awarded the most respectable award [precious chronometer, bagged observatory chronometer] in the London international exposition in 1862, which made Ulysee Nardin assume the leadership on the field of international bagged observatory chronometer. And its subordinate bagged observatory watch and navigation chronometer awarded the gold medal in Paris global exposition in 1878. Displayed in Chicago global exposition in 1893, a observatory watch with exquisite relief sculpture design which mixed gold with silver awarded the gold medal on the group of [navigation and bagged observatory chronometer], and this watch was an unique crystal of art and science; the Athenian position navigation observatory chronometer won the first seven tests in the naval observatory tests in Washington, the capital of America. Athens won the championship among the 60 pieces of observatory wristwatches which were participated in the naval observatory in Washington, the capital of America.
A series of extremely complicated classical watches were invented by Dr. Ludwig Oechslin, who was astronomer, mathematician and watch-making master rolled into one. Such as the Freak of Carrousel flywheel with no hour hand, minute hand and velum of eight days energy storage, the first piece of Westminster carillon tourbillon jaquemarts minute repeater, Genghis Khan Ulysee One, perpetual calendar of Ludwig and the Trilogy of time with the operation of entire measureless universe presented by wristwatch, named by three great astronomers: the Astrolabium Galileo Galilei named by Galileo who was a famous physicist and anthropologist was launched in 1985( it was included in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1988). The Planetarium Copernicus was launched in 1988 to commemorate this Polish astronomer; the first piece of San Macro with action figure was launched in 1989 and the Tellurium Johannes Kepler was launched in 1992 to praise this German astronomer, and to complete the MosieurArpelsAlarm of Trilogy of time. It was not only an excellent achievement among the mechanical watches, but also showed the perseverant enquirying mind of Athens on the field of physics and philosophy.
