Aventurine: According to legend, in the 13th century, on the island of Murano, known as the “Hometown of Glass” in Venice, Italy, a craftsman accidentally sprinkled copper shavings into a furnace of molten glass and inadvertently invented aventurine. , its Italian name, “aventurina” means “accident.” Because aventurine is highly fragile, artisans must use skilled skills to cut thin discs from the entire material carefully, select discs that are the same size, do not contain any tiny air bubbles, and have evenly distributed copper shavings for making dials.

Gathering profound heritage to achieve precise performance
From the 19th to the 20th century, Ulysse Nardin enjoyed a high reputation as the designated supplier of marine chronometer clocks to the navies of many countries. At that time, these precision instruments were used to measure longitude and determine the position of ships at sea, and their accuracy was crucial. Ulysse Nardin has won numerous awards in watch competitions with its marine observatory timepieces and has provided precision timepieces to the navies of more than 50 countries and multiple geographical surveying agencies and observatories. Inspired by this distinguished maritime history, Ulysse Nardin launched the classic marine series chronometer swiss replica watch, demonstrating extraordinary watchmaking skills. In 2017, Ulysse Nardin launched a new generation of deep-sea observatory timepieces-the Navigator series of watches, which continues the technical essence and aesthetic characteristics of the previous model, including coin pattern bezel, Roman numeral time scales, double subdials design, and rhodium plating pointer.
The new Navigation Series Navigator Aventurine Moon Phase Watch is limited to only 300 pieces. Inside the 42 mm diameter stainless steel case, the blue aventurine dial shines like a starry night sky. The watch is equipped with the UN-119 movement, wholly designed and assembled by Ulysse Nardin. It has a silicon balance spring and a DIAMONSIL diamond silicon crystal escapement. Ulysse Nardin’s patented DIAMonSIL diamond silicon technology refers to covering the surface of silicon parts with a layer of artificial diamond coating, making the movement more wear-resistant and shock-resistant. It was first used in the FREAK series in 2007. The dial adopts a double small dial design, with a power reserve indicator dial at noon, a small seconds dial, and a moon phase display window at 6 o’clock. The moon’s rise into the deep starry sky casts an elegant reflection. Swiss replica website.
