Ulysse Nardin Black Sea (Yellow)

A new one from Le Locle, Switzerland-based Ulysse Nardin’s Black Sea collection — a chronograph with yellow hands and indices.  This watch joins the earlier model with red accents, and also the Black Sea Chronograph which I wrote about this past May.  Again the stainless-steel case is specially treated with a complex vulcanization process which gives it a matte-black rubber coating.   Small seconds and round date are displayed at 6 o’clock.   There is also a power-reserve indicator situated at 12 o’clock — though as it is an automatic watch I don’t really see the need for such an indicator.  Water resistant to 200 meters.  Comes on a black rubber strap with ceramic inserts and ceramic folding clasp.

    Perhaps the indicator is more a means of telling the (sedentary) wearer that it’s time to get of the couch and start moving around?

      @goju1:disqus Ha!  But what about the effect on power reserve of raising hand from potato chip bag to mouth repeatedly :-)  
      I just can’t buy in to power reserve indicators on automatic watches.  I have repeatedly stated so in my analysis of various watches over the years, and each time I ask myself if this complication makes sense on such a watch and each time the answer is no.  What is your opinion on this?
