Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronograph Artemis Racing Limited Edition

Celebrating its partnership with one of the world’s most renowned sailing teams, Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin presents Diver Chronograph Artemis Racing, which pays fresh tribute to the seafaring skill of Artemis Racing Team. Issued in a limited edition of 250 pieces, this timepiece boasts dashing Artemis Racing-inspired styling and the reliable precision of the Diver collection. Its ultramarine coloring reveals its aquatic DNA, as does the distinctive wave pattern on two sides of the bezel. Fine engravings of the celebrated Artemis Racing catamaran in action decorate the dial. The beautifully stylized Artemis Racing logo appears both in the 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock, and on one of the two bracelet elements.
Elegant design aside, the Diver Chronograph Artemis Racing is a diving watch in every detail, down to its rubberized screw crown for added water resistance: this diver will take you down safely to 200 meters. Another feature of the timepiece – a unidirectional bezel – helps divers keep a grip on their time underwater, preventing accidental movements in the wrong direction.
Luminescent Superluminova markers on the dial improve visibility in the darkest places. The chronograph counters appear at 6 o’clock and at 9 o’clock, with the permanent seconds at 3 o’clock and an angled date window between 4 and 5 o’clock. A bold flash of yellow on the counters, markers and minute and hour hands aids with legibility as well as providing a stylish contrast to the Diver Artemis Racing’ deep blue hue. Rubberized pushers make for a better grip when a start or stop function is necessary.
Like every Ulysse Nardin timepiece, the Diver Chronograph Artemis Racing is constructed from the most advanced materials available, enhancing its ability to withstand the most challenging environments. Its 45.8 mm diameter case is made from stainless steel coated with rubber and finished with a medallion on the case-back illustrating the catamaran in racing while its rubber strap brings comfort and flexibility.
