Ulysse Nardin launches the Black Sea
July 2011: Created for those passionate about aquatic sports, Black Sea honours Ulysse Nardin’s nautical legacy in haute horology. Powerful and avant-gardist, it is a rugged all weather sports diving timekeeper with a self-winding movement with a 42 hours power reserve indicator, oversized small seconds register and a large date display.
This latest addition to the coveted Marine Diver collection has a specially treated stainless-steel case. It has undergone a complex vulcanization process which is revealed with a matte-black rubber coating, presenting a sporty aesthetic and comfortable feel. The case-back reveals the self-winding movement. Softening its styling is a calming wave pattern decorating the black, structured strap and dial. The hour markers as well as the hour and minute hands are covered with red luminescent material for better visibility. The power-reserve indicator is situated at 12 o’clock while the small seconds and round date are displayed at 6 o’clock. Small hands are painted in red.
Provided with an unidirectional rotating bezel and a screwed crown, the individually numbered case is water-resistant to 200 meters. Strengthening its already exceptional reliability is the Black Sea’s rubber band including ceramic components and an exclusive black ceramic folding clasp.
