The marine world is no stranger to the folks over at Ulysse Nardin. Their latest redesign of the Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver showcases all the traditional qualities of a diving watch but with modern watchmaking techniques. Their latest reimagining makes the already popular Marine Diver an even bigger success through the use of not just a highly reliable diving mechanism, but also in its ability to be a sports watch capable of being worn on any occasion.

Everything about the new Marine Diver gives you a sense of Ulysse Nardin’s history with diving watches from their anchor emblem displayed at 2 o’clock, to the black and blue dial decorated in a wave like motif that evokes the depths of the ocean. The same can be seen on the bezel and the solid caseback that shows off an engraving of a boat surrounded by an inscription reading “Conquer the ocean”.

They have also incorporated various key elements for any divers watch including a unidirectional rotating bezel, large hour-markers and hands with white luminescent coating and a red stripe meaning you will never have a problem reading the time regardless of whether you are in the depths of the ocean or in a board meeting. The small seconds function at 6 o’clock is also oversized making sure that you are awake of everything going on with the watch without any trouble.

However, what sits in the depths of the 44mm case is the Ulysse Nardin Caliber UN-26 self-winding movement with 42 hour power reserve and a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock. With the use of various rubber components including the strap and screw down security crown, Ulysse Nardin has ensured that the wearer will have a nice grip on things (pardon the pun) in slippery situations.

An overall impressive new reimagining of the Marine Diver by Ulysse Nardin. For more info, please visit ulysse-nardin.com
