Ulysse Nardin – DIVER Le Locle

Ulysse NardinDIVER Le Locle Stainless steel

Paying homage to Ulysse Nardin’s past with 
new versions of beautiful classics

Since 1846, when naval commanders and merchant captains the world over came looking for Ulysse Nardin’s marine and pocket chronometers, the company has been building on his winning approach of timekeeping inno-vation and precision. Every decade since then has seen its share of prize-winning innovative timepieces come out of the manufacture in Le Locle, Switzerland.

These mechanical timepieces provide a perpetual source of inspiration, both for collectors who appreciate their eternal beauty and continued performance, and for the watchmakers at the Swiss manufacture. Today, the release of the DIVER Le Locle timepiece celebrates this illustrious history with resolutely modern aplomb.

Inspired by a 1964 model from the house collection, this diving watch might look like the vintage original, but the technology is pure 2017.

A watch that enabled forward and backward date adjustments using a single crown was unprecedented in Haute Horlogerie, and especially one that relied on so few components. Now, the DIVER Le Locle pays hom-age to the legend with a vintage-styled edition

A self-winding UN-320 manufacture movement integrates silicium technology. The timepiece has as well undergone the stringent Ulysse Nardin certification process. A magnified date at 3 o’clock can be quickly set both forwards and backwards – Ulysse Nardin mechanical innovation at its best. And the DIVER Le Locle is a diving watch to its core, as the legible Super Luminova indexes, unidirectional bezel and 100 m water-resistance can attest.

It’s a diver in the details as well: the case-back reveals a unique engraving of a diver in the depths of the sea, and the strap is durable sailcloth.
