From UN Ulysse Nardin honors its nautical history and the ocean’s majestic creatures with the new Hammerhead Shark Limited-Edition. As the hammerhead shark has navigated the oceans with unrivaled precision for centuries, Ulysse Nardin’s marine chronometers have steered sailors faultlessly to port. Once again, the famed watchmaker pays homage to its seafaring past and the ocean’s magnificent beings with the latest addition to its coveted Marine Collection – the Hammerhead Shark.
Sporty, rugged and water-resistant to 200 meters, this exceptional timepiece features a 45-millimeter, skin-friendly, high-grade polished titanium case (individually numbered). Engravings of the mysterious hammerhead shark decorate the case, with the pattern of its one-of-a-kind form continuing delicately onto an eye-catching blue dial that supports applied luminous indexes. Shielding the dial is a sapphire crystal cover encircled by a unidirectional, rotating bezel in either 18-karat rose-gold or stainless steel.
Complementing both the dial and the blue-structured bezel is a specially created blue rubber strap with rose-gold or titanium elements. Its self-winding movement, visible through the exhibition case back, features a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock and an oversized small-seconds register and round date window at 6 o’clock, keeping its wearer on steady course.
Since the master watchmaker Ulysse Nardin opened his doors for business in Le Locle in 1846, marine chronometers have been one of the brand’s specialties. Today, despite satellites overtaking navigation, watch collectors and those passionate for sailing the seven seas look to the Ulysse Nardin brand for its award-winning marine chronometers.
For 2010, Ulysse Nardin is pleased to introduce the Hammerhead Shark to its Marine collection. The timepiece is offered as a limited edition of 350 pieces in 18-karat gold and titanium and 999 pieces in titanium and steel.
