The famous Swiss watchmaker unveiled fully redesigned Marine Diver for 2014 (ref. 263-10-3/92) which boasts all the significant features of the top-quality diving timepieces, such as a screw-locked crown, a rotating bezel and the case that is water-resistant up to an amazing 300 meters (1,000 feet).
This mind-blowing diver evokes the marine world in many details. There is a recognizable Ulysse Nardin’s anchor emblem situated at the 2 o’clock position which is set on either black or blue backdrop of a dial which is decorated with a wave-like pattern. The same motif expands over the edge of the dial, thus covering the unidirectional rotating bezel. When you turn the watch upside down, a monoblock sapphire glass case back reveals an engraving of a boat surrounded by the inscription: “Conquer the ocean.”
As I have already mentioned, the new Marine Diver is able to dive to depths of impressive 1,000 feet. Its 44mm case is crafted from stainless steel and shielded with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
Depending on a model, underneath the front sapphire glass lies either blue or black dial with large hour markers and hands coated with white lume and a red stripe for better readability in extreme lightening conditions. The sporty looking dial comprises two counters. An oversized small seconds sub-dial is located at the 6 o’clock position and incorporates a date window. On the opposite side, at the 12 o’clock position, there is a power reserve counter.
The beating heart of the Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Edition 2014 is the in-house manufactured caliber UN-26 self-winding movement which is capable to store enough energy to keep the watch working for at least 42 hours when fully charged.
One of the very useful diving features is the claw-shaped rubber molding over the screw-locked crown which ensures an easy grip, even while wearing diving gloves.
This newcomer is attached either to an exclusive rubber strap with titanium elements and deployant clasp or to an elegant stainless steel bracelet.
