The new Diver 42mm “three-hand” fleet reinforce the relaunch of the Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronometer Collection. The concave bezel and domed sapphire glass are the same as on the 44mm models launched in September, but the watch now has a more vintage-inspired look, with an uncluttered dial design, touches of retro beige, and a central second instead of a small second counter. The inspiration comes from the brand’s 1964 dive watch, the “Diver Le Locle”. The GPS coordinates of Le Locle, the Manufacture’s hometown since 1846, can be found on the dial.
All the essential diver codes are here: Superluminova on the 0, hands, and rotating bezel for at-a-glance readability from the murkiest depths; and water resistance to 300 meters. The classic mid-20th century diver’s watch aesthetics are fully backed by 21st-century silicium, technology first introduced to watchmaking by Ulysse Nardin.
The watch comes with several different strap options: blue fabric, black veal, three-row stainless-steel or, in a first for Ulysse Nardin, a stainless-steel Milanese mesh bracelet.
