The 44-mm case is designed to sail above the seas, and to dive beneath them. Divers will appreciate the 300 meter water resistance, the crenelated, unidirectional rotating bezel, and the screw-down crown with rubber accents for improved grip. The bold hands and hour markers, and the uninterrupted minute track, enhance legibility, even in low light conditions. The oversize subsidiary seconds allow instant confirmation that the timepiece is functioning as it should. All displays are protected by a nonreflective sapphire crystal.
The blue rubber diving strap of the Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Monaco incorporates twin engraved titanium elements and a deployant buckle. The red accents pick up those on the hour markers and hands, creating a pleasing symmetry.
The self-winding Caliber UN-26, with a power reserve of 42 hours, displays central hours and minutes, small seconds at 6 o’clock, the date inside the seconds, and the power reserve just below 12 o’clock.
Limited to 100 pieces, each individually engraved and numbered, the Marine Diver Monaco Limited Edition is priced at $8,600.
The Monaco Yacht Show takes place September 24-27.
