    From those pictures I can not tell you very much.
    Did Ulysse Nardin, make a watch of that style with a blue dial?
    Even from that picture it looks 'suspect' to me (re-dialed).
    Crown also looks suspect.

    But without better pictures and research It is speculation!

    those size restrictions really piss me off. How about this picture of the dial.

    Crown is not original, this part I forgot to mention

    Well I got the crown correct.
    My gut feeling is dial is a rework.
    Not sure why, it just does not look right to.

    And for 2000, I would have to see movement and inside case.

    That is definitely a re-dial (repainted and new stickers ), and a poor one too. The blue tide-marks up the sides, and even over the top of some of the hour markers is unforgivably sloppy.
    Not for any one with taste, style and good eyesight.

    That sort of blue was a favourite of the Mumbai Maulers but they do show up from European sources, too.

    Norwegian Blue - beautiful plumage.

    The 'European sources' are those who bought from Mumbai Maulers Inc. in the first place
