The 2014 redesigned Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver
The fully redesigned Marine Diver showcases all the qualities of a genuine diving watch, with its screw-locked crown, rotating bezel and case that is water-resistant to 300 meters.
The wave motives on the dial and the bezel make this sport watch particularly attractive and fancy, it becomes dressier almost making me forget that this is a watch intended for diving.
In terms of performance, this watch has all the attributes required of a diving watch. Water resistant to 300 meters, which is made possible thanks to the screw-locked crown and case-back, it also features a unidirectional rotating bezel, which prevents any accidental adjustment to the dive time.
For the same safety reasons, every aspect of the new Marine Diver has been designed to facilitate the reading of its precious indications: The impressive 44 mm face displays large hour-markers and hands with a white luminescent coating and a red stripe, for perfect visibility. The small seconds at 6 o’clock are also oversized, offering a reassuring sign that the watch is functioning as it should, even in the water’s murky depths. Lastly, the claw-shaped rubber molding over the crown ensures it is easy to grip.
Powered by the self-winding caliber UN-26 and with a power reserve of 42 hours, the new Marine Diver displays, in addition to its time functions, the date in an aperture at 6 o’clock and the power reserve in a counter at 12 o’clock. It is available in steel, mounted on a rubber strap or steel bracelet.
The new Marine Diver will retail for $8,500 USD (more than $9,000 CAD).
