For sale I have my Ulysse Nardin monopusher chronograph Ref 386-88. This is a 37mm rose gold monopusher with a manual wind movement designed by F.P. Journe for La Joux Perret. The movement is hand finished and very beautiful.
This reference is very interesting in that there is not a lot of information available, but I believe there was an anniversary version of this watch from ~1997 with a solid caseback in yellow gold, and versions in rose and white gold with see through casebacks followed.
Some more info on this particular configuration here: https://www.watchprosite.com/ulysse-...84868.6898948/
The watch is just back from full service Jan 2019 and under a 1 year warranty. I believe I am the third owner. The watch is in mint condition. The watch comes on the original strap in surprisingly great condition with plenty of wear left, and all original boxes and papers along with a service receipt.
The dial is a deep and thick lacquer with hand painted numerals, and the sub dials are beautifully snailed. UN is known to have made dials for Patek at times, and I believe that this example is of that caliber as it is very special to look at.
Depending on the light it looks like wet paint at times; other times it looks like a satin sheet with a subtle iridescent sheen.
The details of the hand painted numerals and markings are exquisite.
The 4 has this little unnecessary plus at the end of it that I just love, and is a little reminder that this piece is truly hand made by an artisan. All hands are blued with the hour hand being a pomme style and the minute hand having a sort of twisted or pinched motif.
Again, the little details that make this piece unique are abundant.
Size wise, the watch wears similar to a Daytona, definitely bigger than it's 37mm size would suggest.
