Already a favorite among free spirits, the Diver has a new, contemporary and eye-catching appearance both outside and in. A supernova among mere stars, the new Diver Chronometer redefines functional elegance with its audacious design. A diving watch crafted to withstand up to three hundred meters of potentially deadly water pressure, its inverted, concave bezel with domed sapphire glass is a breakthrough in exquisite watchmaking.
The face heralds the mechanical marvel of the UN-118 movement with its silicium technology – a specialty of the manufacture – within its 44mm case, visible through the open back. Super-LumiNova on the indexes and hands makes the hours and minutes visible not only in the dark of night but also at great depths. The face is adorned with a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock and a date and small seconds at 6 o’clock, all nestled within the unidirectional rotating bezel.
The numbers on the face have been redrawn to read 0-15-30-45. Even the rubber and titanium strap of the Diver has been cleverly reworked with the clasp replaced by a pin buckle and streamlined with just one easily identifiable Ulysse Nardin signature “element.”
Ulysse Nardin’s links to the sea run deep. A recognized pioneer of watchmaking innovation since 1846, the manufacture’s early renown was built on the peerless precision and reliability of its marine chronometers – essential navigational instruments that helped seafarers determine longitude by means of celestial navigation. In continuing the development of its line of dive watches, Ulysse Nardin reaffirms its position of watchmaker of the oceans.
The instantly recognizable Monaco Limited Edition in this newly created design has an image of the Monegasque flag at 12 o’clock. The unique calendar disk has a specificity that corresponds directly to the Monaco Yacht Show; the numbers 26, 27, 28 and 29 in red mirror the dates of the 2018 event, held in the Principality’s Port Hercules on the French Riviera. The caseback also discreetly bears the Monaco coat-of-arms. The Diver Monaco is a limited edition of 100 pieces.
