Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver for KiKa Foundation (263-10-3/93-Kika, Unique Piece)

Prestigious Swiss watch manufacture Ulysse Nardin supports the Dutch charity Foundation KiKa (Dutch: Kinderen Kankervrij; English: Children Cancerfree) that brings funding for scientific research on childhood cancer by creating a unique timepiece from its iconic Marine Collection.

KiKa annually celebrates its birthday with a Gala evening including an auction to be held under the nautical theme. The marine world holds no secrets from Ulysse Nardin. Having contributed to the conquest of the oceans through the development of its legendary marine chronometers, the watchmaker has now anchored its impressive knowhow in the sub-aquatic depths. Fully redesigned, the popular Marine Diver is both a highly reliable diving instrument and a fine sports watch that can be worn on every occasion.
Everything about the Marine Diver timepiece evokes the marine theme starting with Ulysse Nardin’s anchor emblem, proudly displayed at 2 o’clock. The dial, in blue is decorated with a wave-like motif. The same ornamentation can be seen on the bezel. The titanium element of the exclusive rubber band is engraved with the name of the Kika Foundation.
