Ulysse Nardin affirms its place on the oceans once again as an official sponsor of the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show and celebrates the superyacht exhibition’s 20th anniversary with the new, limited-edition Monaco 2010 Marine Diver, to be unveiled at the show’s opening today.
Created exclusively for the Monaco show which runs September 22-25 at Port Hercules, the timepiece honors Ulysse Nardin’s nautical legacy in high horology. Ulysse Nardin marine chronometers have been guiding captains and their crews with precision since 1846.
The Monaco 2010 Marine Diver – limited to 100 pieces and individually numbered – features a specially treated 45.8mm stainless-steel case. A complex vulcanization process leaves the case wearing a matte-black rubber coating, imparting a sporty look and comfortable feel. The exhibition caseback reveals a self-winding movement, and the rotor decoration proclaims the Monaco affiliation.
The black strap and dial are awash with Ulysse Nardin’s signature wave pattern. The displays include a power-reserve indicator at 12 o’clock and an oversize small-seconds register at 6. The case is water-resistant to 200 meters. The rubber strap is strengthened with ceramic inserts and an exclusive black ceramic folding clasp.
The Monaco 2010 Marine Diver Limited Edition retails for $9,000.
