Ulysse Nardin has announced a partnership with Ben Thouard, whose photographs capture the light, movement and beauty of water.

Like the hero of Homer’s Odyssey, these modern-day Ulysses set out to conquer their dreams and ambitions, ready to face obstacles and the unknown. Ben Thouard grew up in Toulon, in the south of France, near Marseille. Not known for its waves, it was still enough to give him the “surfing bug” at just eight years old.
