Paying homage to Ulysse Nardin’s past with new versions of beautiful classics, today, the brand released the new Ulysse Nardin Diver Le Locle watch that celebrates the illustrious UN history with resolutely modern aplomb. Inspired by a model from 1964, this new diving watch might look like the vintage original, but the technology behind its mechanical movement is pure modernity.
Fitted with a perfectly sized 42.2 mm case in stainless steel and powered by an in-house automatic N-320 movement with silicium technology and a 48-hour power reserve, the new Diver Le Locle looks like a watch being worn by a diver in a picture from an old issue of a National Geographic magazine. Featuring a black matte dial with a magnified date aperture at 3 o’clock with a date mechanism that can be quickly set both forwards and backwards the new Ulysse Nardin Diver Le Locle is a diving watch to its core with vintage colored superluminova indexes, a black fluted unidirectional rotating bezel and 100-meter water resistance.
With a screw-down crown and a solid case back that reveals a unique engraving of a diver in the depths of the sea, the watch is equipped with a durable sailcloth strap like that on a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. A great looking watch that we can't wait to review on the metal.
