When Rolf Schneider in 1983, bought the company Ulysse Nardin, it shall not remain little more than well-known name. Sam Schneider did not know much about the watch. However, this man, his outstanding ability and flair with raised knees and perishing led the company to new heights. In particular, he invited the firm diversified talented Oyshlina Dr. Ludwig, a specialist in the field of watchmaking, the astronomer, a scientist who became his perfect mate in the revival of a great brand.
Specialty Oyshlina were astronomical timepieces, while he had the knowledge not only in the complex mechanics of celestial models, but also in the field of real astronomy. His collaboration with Ulysse Nardin began with the creation of the memorial of Time Trilogy: Tellurium Johannes Kepler, Astrolabium Galileo Galilei and Planetarium Copernicus. This amazing three models of watches that indicate the positions of celestial bodies, in accordance with the concepts of world order of each of the three scientists who gave the name timepieces.
Before becoming a museum curator hours in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Ludwig Oyshlin created several models of timepieces for Ulysse Nardin, one of them was a clock Freak, presented at the fair hours in Basel in 2002, is an unusual name (Freak, English . - freak, weirdo, caprice, whim.) is best suited to these extraordinary watches, equipped with the most unusual tourbillon ever created, for which Oyshlin invented a new trigger. In 2003, fans of hours was a further example of the inventive features and capabilities Oyshlina professionals Ulysse Nardin translate his ideas into reality - a model Sonata. "Nothing is better than the Sonata, does not indicate the current status Ulysse Nardin", - said with undisguised pride president of Schneider. He had in mind not only the high technical level of the brand, but also economic success and as a result, the expansion of the company.
Because the lack of free space in the center of Le Locle is not allowed to expand the factory, Schneider bought a modern factory building in the industrial area nearby La Chaux-de-Fonds. The company's management, circulation department, assembly department and promising developments have remained in the same place in Le Locle, and production facilities were transferred to a nearby town.
The two-storey building area of 2,250 square meters located not only all kinds of machines - punching, turning, milling, - but also the departments of technical development, engineering and design of mechanisms. Under the leadership of Pierre and Luc Gigue Yumera Dr. Oyshlina ideas embodied in the watch.
Terms such as "a process of selective photolithography", "electrospray" and "silicon and diamond engraving" show exactly what happens in the four walls of the factory: it boils hard work in research and development of new materials for clockworks, all is in order to increase reliability, it is best to use energy and make it unnecessary maintenance. By the beginning of the new millennium, the company has already experienced its patented trigger Dual Direct, and two years later, experts experimented with diamond balancing spring and escapement wheel.
The final result of the research and development of steel watch Freak Diamond Heart, equipped with Dual Ulysse Escapement - trigger system made of synthetic diamonds.
Thus, Ulysse Nardin can rightly say that these watches are an important milestone in the history of the art of watchmaking.
