At the recent Monaco Yacht Show, Ulysse Nardin presented four new additions to the Diver Chronometer collection, with black and blue redesigns joined by a Diver Great White and a special Monaco version, both limited editions.

The new Diver Chronometer, a diving watch crafted to withstand up to three hundred meters of water pressure, has an unidirectional rotating inverted, concave bezel with domed sapphire glass. The face heralds the UN-118 movement with its silicium technology within its 44mm case, visible through the open back. Superluminova 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. 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”. Sturdy, blue rubber guards protect the crown.

The Diver Great White, with a great white shark stamped on the case back, is emblematic of the Ulysse Nardin philosophy. King of the oceans, the shark represents stealth, strength and strategy and the Diver Great White embodies these qualities in contemporary adventurers of the land and sea. The Diver Great is a limited edition of 300 pieces.

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 case back also discreetly bears the Monaco coat-of-arms. The Diver Monaco is a limited edition of 100 pieces.
