Ulysse Nardin Yellow Gold Mono Pusher Chronograph

A steamy and heroic history…

This is beautifully over-sized Ulysse Nardin yellow gold chronograph in a 40mm mono pusher case, which is in really fantastic condition. The original dial is in stunning original condition, with a blue telemeter scale and black tachymeter scale. The hands are delicate in yellow gold with an interesting big arrow on the minutes sub register.
The watch features a very interesting case back engraving that translates to: “Panos Pladelis - in memory of your services to the Swiss War Office for Transport, Bern 1942” Our research indicates that the Panos Pladelis was a Greek steam ship that took part in a rescue of the crew of a US Tanker, which got torpedoed in the second worldwar by a German U-boot. Our best guess is that this was awarded to the Captain of the Steam Ship or other officer who took part in the rescue effort.
The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker and comes on a Bulang and Sons strap.

Key to our unparalleled service is Fedex Priority shipping, fully insured. Once you have received your watch, we encourage you to inspect it thoroughly. If you are not 100% satisfied, please let us know. We offer a 14 days return policy. Simply return the watch to get a full refund of the original purchase price.
