An underwater first mate should be as reliable as the oxygen that keeps the diver sane. Coming from a legacy of excellent marine chronometers, nothing comes closer to the Ulysse Nardin Black Sea Chronograph as the exact retort.
From materials to functionality, the credible brand record lives through this timepiece. A 45.8 mm stainless steel, rubber-coated case ends with a sapphire glass case back. Its rubber strap provides unbridled comfort for different lifestyles. The buckle and other watch segments derive from ceramic.
Produced with a master diver’s touch, this mechanical watch is granted full capacity to guide its wearer with what UN calls “exacting precision and endurance.” It has enhanced adaptability measures such as a rubberized screw crown for better water-resistance, a Superluminova feature on the dial that maintains a much-needed glow in dark situations and a unidirectional turning bezel. As the diver dips to 200 meters, Ulysse Nardin assures that his welfare weighs higher and his safety is a priority with this advanced technology.
Down to the details: the chronograph seconds hand features the iconic Ulysse Nardin anchor. The date sits at 4 o’clock while the 6 o’clock mark denotes a 12-hour counter. Utility is key–rubberized pushers make for quick start and stop capabilities.
The name presents a most accurate description that is “masculine as it is elegant,” as UN puts it, coming in sleek black with streaks of blue and red on its dial. On surface or submerged, this watch is an apt choice for the illustrious wearer that values both his diving suit as well as his business suit.
