Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronograph Monaco Limited Edition

1503-151-7m_93-mon_prUlysse Nardin presents the new Diver Chronograph Monaco, a commemorative watch that encapsulates the spirit of innovation and independence that has guided Ulysse Nardin for over 170 years. With a nautical history rooted in time, the Swiss watchmaker's measuring instruments have guided sailors with extreme precision for many decades. It therefore seemed a natural evolution in the brand's history to become the official sponsor of the Monaco Yacht Show, a sponsorship that has now lasted eight years. Distinguished by the presence of the colours red and blue, the Diver Chronograph commemorates the event with a minute counter displaying the heraldic design of the Principality of Monaco, also featured on the sapphire crystal caseback. The blue dial bears the inscription Monaco Yacht Show 2016, while the hour markers and hands sport the colours of the Monaco flag. Ulysse Nardin's deep connection with the sea is present in every aspect of this timepiece, of which only 100 pieces were made in steel. The Diver Chronograph Monaco uses an automatic mechanical movement, calibre UN-150, made in-house and with a silicon escapement. The diver's DNA is revealed by the oversized 44 mm case and the unidirectional rotating bezel - a safety measure to prevent accidental changes to diving times. The outside of the rotating bezel is fluted, a trick designed to recall the wave motif engraved on the rubber ring. The rubber coating on the screw-down safety crown ensures grip and helps guarantee water resistance to 300 metres.
