Ulysse Nardin’s Diver Chronograph Hammerhead Shark features the self-winding manufacture chronograph caliber UN-150 with silicium escapement and balance spring. A first for the entire Diver collection, the introduction of this movement represents another major step in Ulysse Nardin’s independence.
The Diver Chronograph Hammerhead Shark is presented as a limited edition in both stainless steel (300 pieces) and 18-karat rose gold 5N (99 pieces).
With its nautical style, both versions sport a deep blue dial with a signature hammerhead shark motif. Lifelike, the hammerheads appear to be waiting on their seamount before setting off to feed at night, only to return together to the same spot.
Hammerheads are the only sharks known to do this. Due to the shape of their expanded head, hammerhead sharks possess the sharpest sensory accuracy of all the sharks. Thus, they are the natural rulers in ocean navigation, renowned for their supreme navigational precision, hence the time-keeper bears the name “Hammerhead Shark.”
With water resistance to 300 meters, the watch’s oversized case – 44 mm, 48-hour power reserve, screw-locked crown, pushers, solid lugs, and unidirectional turning bezel make it an ideal watch for ocean travel and excursions. Rugged and reliable, it offers excellent readability. The 30 minutes counter is located at 3 o’clock. At 6 o’clock, the date and 12-hour counter is displayed. And, at 9 o’clock rests the small seconds counter.
A regal red accents the most notable elements on the timepiece’s face, including the luminous indexes, watch hands and even the shark. Its bezel stands out by its characteristic wave pattern, further emphasized by its ornamentation impressed into the rubber band. An azure rotor with the shark decoration is visible through the open, sapphire crystal case-back.
