The History of Ulysse Nardin
This company was started by a young Swiss watchmaker known as Ulysse Nardin back in 1846. Despite growing up miles away from the sea, Mr Ulysse Nardin knew that the demand for pocket and marine chronometers would increase, so he set out to meet the growing demand. Subsequently, he started by making Ulysse Nardin navigational timepieces, which were of exceptional quality such that they were used as the benchmark for civilians and the military alike. The reliability of this company's watches would continue to soar in the coming generations. This continued growth persisted such that the company had more than 50 navies as well as global shipping companies by the 1870s equipped with the Ulysse Nardin marine deck chronometers. These devices were essential as they provided sailors with accurate and efficient data across continents and trades.
After Ulysse Nardin passed away in 1876, his son took over the company's operations. The company, however, experienced a minor setback in the 1980s after the unexpected rise of quartz watches. This crisis would later be averted after Rolf W. Schnyder bought Ulysse Nardin in 1983 and consequently restoring it to its previous success, which is as a result of continuous innovation at its Haute Horlogerie base.
