AS SHARP AS A WASP
Always a lover of freedom, the avant-garde watchmaker unveils a new, very exclusive edition with an architectural face enhanced with bright yellow, and made of titanium and Carbonium®, a technical material that is as light as it is resistant.
With its personality based on freedom, wide open spaces, usually oceanic, and avant-garde design, Ulysse Nardin continues to surprise with each new creation. This is once again the case with the Diver x Skeleton Black, a watch available in only 175 pieces. Based on the success of the blue-tinted version presented in 2021, we can predict that this dark piece, with touches of bright yellow, will sell out quickly.
At first glance, the eye is immediately drawn to the large X that reigns, hemmed in with bright color, in the center of in-relief dial. Swept by the two large blackened hour and minute hands and the second hand, the rectangular hour markers seem to float on the open structure over part of the movement, the self-winding skeletonized UN-372 caliber, clocked at 3hz and providing three days of power reserve (72 hours). All displays are coated with white Super-LumiNova® which allows easy reading even in the dark.
This Ulysse Nardin engine is housed in a massive 44mm diameter titanium case coated with black DLC. This light metal is complemented by the Carbonium® of the graduated bezel, a resistant material derived from aeronautics and composed of compressed carbon fibers. The Diver x Skeleton Black comes with two straps, one in yellow rubber with a folding clasp for a sporty and biting identity, the other made of recycled fishing nets with a kind of Velcro® (R-Strap) closure for an (almost) total black look.
