Uplift your spirit with three stunning timepieces from Ulysse Nardin, all decked in winter white, this festive season. Inspired by ice, snow and steel gray sharks the Blast, the Lady Diver Great White and the Diver X are simply extraordinary.
These astonishing watches conjure up stunning glaciers, floating snowflakes and the apex predators of the sea. Classy, cultured and elegantly sporty, these three watches are an exemplary example of masterful watchmaking, each one an individual masterpiece.
An ode to the stunning glaciers of Antarctica, the White Blast comes in white ceramic, metallic grey, dark blue with beautiful transparency. Just like a frozen lake. Reminiscent of glaciers, this model features a smooth titanium bezel, dark blue inscriptions on the barrel mentioning Silicium Technology which beats inside of it. The dark blue Ulysse Nardin logo is featured prominently on the rectangular frame and the dark blue color on the sculpted indexes and hands is completed by Super luminova. Its jewels are transparent, reminiscent of snowflakes
Powered by the recently fashioned UN-172 movement (an evolution of the UN-171 movement), the Blast has a three-day power reserve as well as an automatic tourbillon and a new tiny yet powerful platinum micro-rotor visible only from the front of the watch at 12 o’clock.
Lady Diver Great White
Diamonds, drive and determination: this is what characterizes the Lady Diver Great White. This sensual, young and sportive diving watch designed especially for women, adds to its Lady Diver collection twelve years after the launch of its first feminine diving watch.
This sophisticated diving watch represents the new sensuous and bold feminine identity of Ulysse Nardin. Launched in a limited edition of only 300pieces, the Lady Diver Great White is fitting as the female counterpart to the men’s Diver Great White.
In a 39mm size, slim and elegant, the Lady Diver is powered by the UN-816silicium technology movement. Its face is gray and sparkles with 11 diamonds as hour-markers, With a case back bearing the stamp of a female apnea diver, the watch has a fully integrated rubber bracelet textured to represent ocean waves or mermaid’s scales.
Diver X Antarctica
Representing the essence of exploration and all it entails, Ulysse Nardin has designed the Diver X Antarctica. An incarnation in the world of watchmaking, the Antarctica model of the Diver X is a watch that brings the elusive “X-factor” to tackle the world’s roughest seas – in honor of the modern-day Ulysses who choose to explore edgy and dangerous terrain. A matte white rubber strap recalls the clean and austere lines of the Earth’s Southernmost Continent, Antarctica, with ice blue touches on the dial reflecting their famous icebergs.
The Ulysse Nardin brand element is prominent under the sand-blasted dial. The bezel – in a white rubber – matches the watch strap. Its UN-118 movement guarantees accuracy in any hemisphere at any time of the day or night. The gray face is marked with a bold and elegant “X”. The crown, horns and case back are in titanium.
The stamp on the back of the watch details not only the coordinates of the Antarctic Continent: 90°latitude (with no longitude necessary for the landmass located at the southernmost tip of the Earth) but also the route of the Vendée Globe sailing race, of which Ulysse Nardin has become the official sponsor.
