True to its reputation as the watchmaker of the oceans, Ulysse Nardin has announced a new partnership with French kitesurfer Alex Caizergues, the kitespeed world record holder and the first person ever to exceed 100 km/hour on water using sail power.

Through sheer determination and perseverance, Alex has carved out a career for himself, a life, in the world of board sports. He is first and foremost a lover of adventure, both as an athlete and as a person: adventure is what drives him and gives him the strength to push past any limits. Given this, it was only natural for Alex to join the growing armada of Ulysse Nardin’s adventurers. Ulysse Nardin sets its sights on modern adventurers, on the Ulysses of today, on those who love to break the rules, cast off their moorings and swim against the current. On “Beautiful Freaks”.

Alex is accompanied on the water by Ulysse Nardin’s Diver Deep Dive, a sturdy and functional sports watch that is water-resistant to a depth of 1,000 metres. Powered by the in-house UN-320 calibre, the features of the Diver Deep Dive have been designed for extreme sports enthusiasts both under and on the water: a helium valve, a detachable titanium guard, an expandable and adjustable leather strap and a large bezel fitted with 12 notched teeth for easy manipulation. Its dial is decorated with 15 sharks, plus another stamped onto the caseback, to remind us that man only visits the oceans and that the sea belongs to the animals that inhabit it.
