Dubai, UAE, December, 2019-In line with its innovative values and seafaring heritage, Ulysse Nardin, the pioneering Swiss watchmaker, has revealed its latest Diver Collection timepiece. In its early days, the manufacturer produced award-winning marine chronometers. With the Diver Collection, the Swiss brand combines attractive designs with functionality and durability. The exquisitely designed Diver Chronograph 44mm Hammerhead with its precision timekeeping and attention to detail makes it a watch lover’s dream.
This limited edition – only 300 pieces – features a hammerhead shark engraved on its case back, a clever nod to its big brothers, the Diver Great White 44mm and the Diver Blue Shark 42mm. A special grid pattern engraved behind the shark’s wide open mouth reinforces the aggressivity of the animal for a more stylish and masculine effect. In addition, the shark is now shown frontally and not in profiles, for a bold and more assertive look.Named for the unusual and distinctive structure of their heads, Hammerhead sharks are consummate predators that use their oddly “hammer” shaped heads to improve their ability to find prey. The brand has been developing iconic “blue and red hammerhead editions” for a few years now.
Designed with passion, the Diver Chronograph 44mm Hammerhead features a UN-150 Manufacture self-winding movement that guarantees accuracy. Touches of red are everywhere: from the bezel joint, the chronograph seconds hand, the start/stop/reset pushers and finally the rubber strap with a red hammerhead shark sculpted in the rubber at 12 o’clock. The unique side plate is also engraved with red numbers.
Its silicium technology allows the intricate movements of tiny parts of the watch without the need for any lubrication. Italso means the timepiece is not affected by magnetism and, because silicium can be produced to ultra-precise specifications, it is perfect for the escapement components. This pioneering technology was first introduced by Ulysse Nardin.
