In 2009, Ulysse Nardin introduced Moonstruck, a watch that was much more than a timepiece to tell the time. It featured a tidal display that worked worldwide. Now it displays world time as well in a sleek new version.
My thoughts have turned to one major system that is always there, but generally hidden from sight: the movement. Here are a few of my favorites and why. And in the philosophy of putting my money where my mouth is, these movements have appeared in one or more watches that I’ve owned personally.

During the final weekend of the America’s Cup finals in Bermuda, where Emirates Team New Zealand won the Auld Mug by defeating two-time winner Oracle Team USA, I had the chance to sit down with Ulysse Nardin’s CEO Patrik Hoffmann for a chat about 2017. Even though Ulysse Nardin’s team, Artemis Racing, had already bowed out in the semifinals of the world’s most prestigious sailing competition life seems to be smooth sailing for the brand.
