It’s visually inspiring and reminiscent of classic White Dial Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta Replica Watch design, but it’s also purposeful, which is everything a regatta timer should be. I was pleased to see that the Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta watch is available in two dial colors. The regatta timer functions are split between smaller central sub-dials and are displayed in bright yellow on both the blue and white dial variants. The case of the Ulysse Nardin Marine Regatta watch is sized at 44mm in diameter and provides 100m of water-resistance. The variety of brushed and polished surfaces worked into the stainless steel case results in a look that walks a fine line between sport and elegance.
If Ulysse Nardin Marine Replica Watch would require the sacrifice of the exhibition caseback, though, it isn’t a tradeoff I’d want to see. The bezel has a deeply notched design and offers an aggressive look that matches with the chunky pushers and the black rubberized screw-down crown. The watch features both anti-reflective sapphire crystal and sapphire case-back.
One thing to note here is that the yellow just pops a little more on the blue dial Ref. 1553-155-3/43 that has a deep sunburst effect to it and is lined with large polished Roman numerals, which would be my choice if I had to pick a favorite.
While it’s true that most wearers probably won’t even come close to anything resembling 100m, I couldn’t help but wish that they would’ve just bumped the water resistance up to 200m, which is pretty standard on most watches you usually associate with ocean sports.
