If you want a reliable and good looking Swiss watch, Ulysse Nardin is one of the lesser known Swiss watch manufacturers that have been rising up in reputation in the last decades. They make luxury watches, so you shouldn’t be on a budget if you want to purchase from them, but you can be certain you’re going to get a quality timepiece that won’t fail you. Such is the new Ulysse Nardin El Toro, a powerful and masculine wristwatch that comes in a few versions meant to appeal to different types of men.
One of the versions of the Ulysse Nardin El Toro features a brown leather strap with deployment type clasp, automatic movement and rose gold parts and pieces. Its brown dial contrasts very beautifully with the rose gold and the bracelet, and it features hours, minutes, seconds, the date and a perpetual calendar. A similar model is fitted with a brown rubber bracelet with deployment clasp, 18 carat rose gold pieces and black ceramic bezel and transparent case back. The watches in this collection have strong and defined lines and look very professional, almost military issue-like.
One of the most expensive watches in the Ulysse Nardin El Toro line has pieces and parts made entirely from platinum and a black crocodile leather strap. Just like the other versions in this line, it features a transparent case back which allows the wearer to see the mechanism in function. This automatic watch with a 45-hour power reserve has screw-down crown, a grey-silver dial, and shows hours, minutes, seconds and a perpetual calendar. There are only 500 units from this model, which is called more precisely the Ulysse Nardin El Toro 329-00 and which has a cheaper cousin, the 329-00-3 with a rubber strap instead of a leather one.
The Ulysse Nardin El Toro line are collectible, though not of the value that other more limited editions from Ulysse Nardin are; nevertheless, these watches enjoy the best technologies and the same experienced craftsmanship and know-how that all Ulysse Nardin timepieces have, so an El Toro watch can become a great gift for someone dear, or a precious piece in a collector’s book. Other than that, they are also watches that can be worn daily, with elegant and with more casual outfits, by confident men who know accessorizing is important and that being on time is a valuable quality.
