The next wave of Ulysse Nardin diver’s watches has arrived. Emanating with style and fortitude, the range modifies previous instalments by way of a slim 42mm case and eye-catching vintage aesthetic. Featured in the fleet are concave bezels, domes of sapphire glass, and immaculate dials with three hands and beige accents. On the unfettered dials of most models, one will also notice the GPS coordinates of Le Locle. It’s a detail that pays tribute to both the brand’s Swiss hometown as well as its 1964 classic entry, the “Diver Le Locle.”
Combining mid-20th-century visuals with 21st-century materials and innovations, the new diver collection from Ulysse Nardin hosts Superluminova on the 0, hands and rotating bezel. In turn, the watches remain legible in even the darkest of undersea terrains. Speaking of which, each model is water resistant to a full 300 metres, and supremely durable by design.
At the forefront of the collection is the Diver Blue Shark Limited Edition, little brother to the Ulysses Nardin Diver Great White 44mm. Weaving stainless steel with a PVD blue bezel and clean blue dial, it features subtle orange flourishes on the front and then a blue-shark stamp on the case back. Only 300 pieces of this bad boy are available, so don’t hesitate to snatch it up.
Available with each watch is a variety of strap options, including the brand’s first stainless steel Milanese mesh bracelet. Stamped from sheet metal, stitched together by hand, and finished with a retro-styled butterfly buckle, the strap is reportedly “shark-proof” (though we don’t recommend putting that particular claim to the test). If thick mesh is a little too intense for your taste, blue fabric, black veal, and three-row stainless steel straps are also available.
