To celebrate World Oceans Day, Ulysse Nardin drew on the azure hues of the vast ocean and reinvented two pioneering timepieces—the diving series DIVER X skeleton watch, which has powerful performance and accurate travel time without fear of deep-sea challenges; and the diving series DIVER NET watch, achieve extraordinary durability with innovative materials.
Le Locle, Switzerland, June 8, 2023, at 10 am Central European Time – Ulysse Nardin Athens watches have a deep relationship with the ocean that can be traced back to 1846 when the brand launched the first batch of marine chronometers. At that time, accurate and reliable nautical timepieces were the key to determining the course on the vast sea, and it was life and death for explorers. Today, the ocean is facing severe threats. We can only protect this piece of the blue by realizing sustainable management of marine environmental resources. To this end, the United Nations established “World Oceans Day.” Under this opportunity, Ulysse Nardin joined hands with OCEARCH, a non-profit shark research organization, and Mike Coots, a brand friend dedicated to shark protection, to give full play to their innovative watchmaking expertise and actively help marine conservation. To continue the brand’s consistent commitment to the ocean this year, Athens Watch launched a new DIVER X skeleton watch and a DIVER NET watch, with deep anthracite gray and azure blue tones that symbolize the sea, creating charming contrast. While adhering to the excellent quality of advanced watchmaking, the two new works demonstrate Athens Watch’s pioneering exploration of responsibly developing watchmaking and recyclable materials.

At present, 90% of the world’s large fish stocks have been depleted, 50% of coral reefs have been destroyed, and about 9 million tons of plastic waste are discharged into the ocean yearly. Faced with this situation, Athens Watch explored and developed innovative watchmaking materials with a pioneering spirit and launched the diving series DIVER NET concept watch last year. This extraordinary work is groundbreakingly made of recycled materials recycled from the ocean and is jointly created by Athens Watch and several start-ups. Continuing the design of the first diving series DIVER NET watch, the case composition of the new DIVER NET watch Azure includes: Carbonium material (Carbonium), the environmental impact produced during the production process is lower than other carbon composite materials 40%; Nylo polyamide material, made of recycled fishing nets; and stainless steel material, of which the content of recycled stainless steel reaches 95%, which is a significant improvement from the 80% of the original DIVER NET watch. The new watch is equipped with the brand’s classic UN-118 movement, fitted with a silicon balance spring and a DiamonSil diamond silicon crystal escapement. This timepiece, which condenses the essence of advanced watchmaking, is waterproof to 300 meters. The “X” element on the dial, the time display, and the bezel scale are all presented in azure blue, which ingeniously echoes the color of the rubber strap, symbolizing the azure ocean.
Another newly launched diving series, the DIVER X skeleton watch blue sea model while continuing its predecessor’s superb technical connotation and powerful performance, reinterprets the aesthetic charm of diving best replica watches. This eye-catching masterpiece features a DLC-coated titanium case and is water-resistant to 200 meters. The hollow dial is decorated with an ‘X’ logo in intense black and azure blue, full of dynamic style. Through the dial, the precise mechanical structure of the hollow movement is clear at a glance. The barrel cover and the unidirectional rotating bezel with the diving time scale ring are also made of Carbonium, a high-tech composite material that is both light and strong. The new watch is equipped with the brand’s self-made UN-372 movement, known for its precise performance and solid reliability. It is equipped with a large oscillator, silicon escapement, and balance spring, all independently developed by the brand, which is extremely rare in the advanced watchmaking industry. The silicon material was first introduced into the watchmaking field by Athens Watch in 2001 and was first applied to the FREAK fantasy series watches. This material has many excellent properties, such as anti-magnetic and anti-oxidation, and is not easy to deform, which can effectively improve the accuracy and durability of the timepiece. The new watch’s crown protector and rubber strap are also azure blue. This tribute to the ocean will accompany contemporary Ulysses to explore the vast blue unknown sea.
