The leader in timepiece invention and innovation, Swiss Watch Manufacturer Ulysse Nardin, announced the Black Sea Watch as the newest addition to their Maxi Marine Diver collection. Created for those passionate about aquatic sports, Black Sea honors Ulysse Nardin’s nautical legacy in haute horology.
This powerful and rugged timepiece is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement based on the UN-26 Caliber. The watch provides approximately 42 hours of power reserve, which is indicated at 12 o’clock. Power reserve indicator is an extremely handy option for an automatic mechanical watch, since it reminds the wearer that the wrists need to be in a motion most of the day to ensure perfect accuracy. Provided with an unidirectional rotating bezel and a screwed crown, its case, individually numbered, is water-resistant to 200 meters.
The Ulysse Nardin’s Maxi Marine Diver Black Sea Watch is nested in specially treated stainless steel case, measuring 45.8 mm in diameter. The steel is covered with a matte-black rubber coating, in a process of vulcanization. Strengthening its already exceptional reliability is the Black Sea’s rubber band including ceramic components and an exclusive black ceramic folding clasp. The dial, bracelet and bezel are graced with an immediately recognizable wave pattern, which marks the whole collection.
Black Sea’s dark appearance is enhanced with unusual red luminescent material used on the hands and time markers. In addition to power reserve indicator, the neat black dial also features a small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. The round date indicator is placed inside of the small seconds counter and magnified by the Cyclops’s eye.
The Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver Black Sea Watch will retain for $12,900. [Ulysse Nardin]
