Zadok Jewelers turns 40 in 2016. What better way to celebrate than with a limited-edition timepiece from one of the world’s most esteemed watchmakers? Ulysse Nardin is producing 40 Marine Chronometer watches — yes, you can be one of only 40 individuals in the world to own one — to mark Zadok’s four decades in business, and it’s a 43mm beauty.
Start with the midnight-blue dial, then go to the 18K gold details, and you have understated elegance on your wrist. It has an open caseback, the better to admire its mechanical splendor. A self-winder, it sports a titanium-and-steel case. The rubber strap adds the perfect marine feel. And yes, it is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters.
“We were so pleased to be able to collaborate with Ulysse Nardin on our 40th-anniversary watch,” says Jonathan Zadok. “Our desire was to create a piece that was sporty enough to wear with jeans but could just as easily be worn with a suit. We think we’ve achieved that goal.”
The Zadok/Ulysse Nardin special-edition watch retails for $10,950 and is available exclusively at Zadok.
Ulysse Nardin founded his namesake company in 1846, and exported his first watches to the United States in 1860. The company creates timepieces in its workshops in Le Locle, Switzerland.
