Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Indian Ocean Limited Edition (Ref. 265-10LE-3/93-IND)

World renowned for its legendary marine chronometers, Swiss luxury watch watchmaker Ulysse Nardin unveils a new limited edition Marine Diver to pay tributes to the Indian Ocean which is the third largest ocean in the world.

The Indian Ocean covers approximately 20% of the water on the Earth's surface. It is bounded by Asia on the north, on the west by Africa, on the east by Australia, and on the south by Antarctica. It is named after India. The Indian Ocean is known as “Ratnakara” -the mine of gems, in ancient Sanskrit literature. The history of the Indian Ocean is marked by maritime trade; cultural and commercial exchange probably dates back at least seven thousand years.
The especially created timepiece is powered by the self-winding caliber UN-26 and with a power reserve of 42 hours, the Marine Diver displays, in addition to its time functions, the date in an aperture at 6 o’clock and the power reserve in a counter at 12 o’clock. Available in a bi-color case in steel and in 18 ct rose gold mounted on a rubber strap with mention “Indian Ocean” engraved, the Marine Diver timepiece is both a highly reliable diving instrument and a fine sports watch that can be worn on every occasion.

Everything about the Marine Diver evokes the marine world in which the Le Locle watchmaker is steeped, 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 solid case-back reveals an engraving of a boat surrounded by the inscription: “Conquer the ocean.” This embellishes a new case designed for extreme conditions, extended by the lugs with their taut, sleek lines.
In terms of performance, this watch has all the attributes required of a diving watch. Boasting exceptional water resistance to 300 meters, made possible thanks to the screw-locked crown and case-back, it also features a unidirectional rotating bezel, which prevents any accidental adjustment to the dive time. For the same safety reasons, every aspect of the new Marine Diver has been designed to facilitate the reading of its precious indications: The impressive 44 mm face displays large hour-markers and hands with a white luminescent coating and a red stripe, for perfect visibility. The small seconds at 6 o'clock are also oversized, offering a reassuring sign that the watch is functioning as it should, even in the water’s murky depths. Lastly, the claw-shaped rubber molding over the crown ensures it is easy to grip.

Limited to 250 pieces, each timepiece is individually numerated.
