Ulysse Nardin DIVER Deep Dive HAMMER Shark Titanium 46mm Edition

Ulysse Nardin plunges 1,000 metres 
underwater and Freaks Out SIHH 2018

Very robust, very functional, very technical, very sporty: introducing the remarkable new hero piece of the iconic Ulysse Nardin DIVER Collection — a resolutely masculine, highly reliable professional diving instrument and an exceptionally bold sports watch, loaded with unprecedented technical specs, including a helium escape valve and water resistance to 1,000 metres.

Ulysse Nardin’s links to the sea run deep. A recognized pioneer of watchmaking innovation since 1846, the Manufacture’s early renown was built on the peerless precision and reliability of its marine chronometers – essential navigational instruments that helped seafarers determine longitude by means of celestial navigation. The Manufacture is equally renowned for what it has achieved underwater, with its solidly built and unabash-edly masculine DIVER collection.

Like its immediate predecessor, the Diver Deep Dive is powered by the in-house caliber UN-320, which has a patented silicium lever and escape wheel configuration. The balance spring is also in silicium, a material Ulysse Nardin first introduced to Haute Horlogerie.

Along with 1 km water resistance — the world record diving depth is 701 meters — new technical standouts on this limited edition (300 pieces) masterwork include a removable titanium guard on the crown at 2 o’clock and a helium release valve at 9 o’clock, for deep dives of prolonged periods of time or under saturation.

The rubber strap is a first: it has an expandable element that adjusts to changes in wrist size during dives, caused by the compression of your neoprene diving suit. The robust, angular-shaped case is in titanium, with cut-edged horns. The large bezel has 12-notched teeth for easy manipulation, even with diving gloves.

The look is stark yet shark: 15 hammerhead sharks adorn the dial; another is stamped on the caseback; a bright red one swims on the side of the crown guard; and another decorates the dial counter.

Destined for fans of active leisure and all water sports, the Diver Deep Dive will especially appeal to men looking for a timepiece that is striking looking but not fragile, that they can wear even when things get very intense.

The 75-piece limited edition is presented in RJ’s elegant Skylab case which follows the rule of a classic round shaped case with 4 lugs. Enhanced with the 4 paws characteristic of the brand, the all black 48mm case reveals a skeleton movement offering endless transparency. This modern 3-layer movement featuring straight bridges and chamfered angles is designed by RJ.

Spider-Man has widely spread into pop culture from its first appearance in the early sixties in a comic book to today. The Super Hero is thus evoked through a timeless spider logo taking center stage on the dial.

The spider is probably the best evocation of the character, Peter Parker. Once a shy science nerd, his life changed forever when the bite of a radioactive spider granted him amazing arachnid-like abilities.

In collaboration with MARVEL, the RJ x Spider-Man timepiece pays tribute to a true generational symbol, a pop icon with an ever-growing fandom.
