Raindrops in the ocean…
…by which I mean that this new Ulysse Nardin (“yoo-liss nar-din”) does not make a big splash in my book. While the brand seeks to honor its nautical roots (marine chronometers have been a specialty since Ulysse Nardin opened his doors in Le Locle in 1846), this new addition to its Marine Collection – the Hammerhead Shark — seems gimmicky to a landlubber like myself. Also not evident to me are the “engravings of the mysterious hammerhead shark [which] decorate the case”. That’s all I’ve got to say about this one.
