For 2010, Ulysse Nardin introduces the Hammerhead Shark to its Marine collection. The timepiece is offered as a limited edition of 350 pieces in 18k gold and titanium, and 999 pieces in titanium and steel. The 45mm polished titanium case is individually numbered and water resistant to 200 meters.
Engravings of the hammerhead shark decorate the case, and the motif carries over to the blue dial that supports applied luminous indexes. Shielding the dial is a sapphire crystal encircled by a unidirectional, rotating bezel in either 18k rose gold or stainless steel. Complementing both the dial and the blue-structured bezel is a specially created blue rubber strap with rose-gold or titanium elements.
The self-winding movement, visible through the exhibition case back, features a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock and an oversized small-seconds register and round date window at 6 o’clock.
The reference 263-91LE-3 in titanium with steel bezel lists for $8900, and the reference 265-91LE-3 with gold bezel is priced at $19,900. Complete specifications appear below the images, which may be enlarged with a click.
