What Ulysse Nardin Michelangelo watches are known for is impeccable accuracy. This is why they are fondly called marine chronometers. Apart from accuracy, what they also have in common despite their differences in the shape of their dial. Their case and dial have an oval shape with a flat top and base. You will agree that only very few brands of wristwatches have the shape. Find the other features of Michelangelo watches below.
Most of the watches come in either a black or white dial. Although there are dials of other colors, white and black dials dominate. Some of the brands have Arabic numeral hour markers but most of them come in Roman numeral hour markers with great contrast. Their dials have hands for hours, minutes, and seconds and they also display the date either through a date window or through one or more sub-dials.
The cases come in either 18K rose gold or well-polished silver. The material of the crown is usually the same, with the case material. Their case is usually covered with scratch proof sapphire crystal and the width of their case starts from about 38mm.
Most of them come with either a black or brown leather strap while others have bracelet straps. Both bracelet and leather straps look great on the watch. Their leather straps are usually very tough and they come with an ardillon buckle. Some of the leather straps are made of crocodile skin.
They either offer quartz movement or automatic self-winding movement with more than 42 hours of power reserve. In addition, the watches are water-resistant up to about 50 meters (150 feet) or even more. What else could you be looking for in a watch?
