The new Diver Deep Dive from Ulysse Nardin focuses on function and technical advancement. It’s water resistant to an incredible 1,000 meters — nearly three times the depths a highly trained technical diver can reach. The manufacture-made caliber, UN-320, has a patented silicium escapewheel and lever system, and a silicium balance wheel. The titanium watch has a removable crown guard at 2 o’clock, so wearing the 46mm watch outside of the water is comfortable, not cumbersome. At 9 o’clock, there’s a helium-escape valve. The all-new rubber strap is expandable, so it adjusts to changes in wrist size during dive compressions. In addition to its marine complications, it has ocean-themed decorations. A shark motif appears throughout: the dial has 15 hammerhead sharks and there are three additional sharks on the crown guard, sub-seconds dial and caseback. In total, there are 18 sharks, which nods to its introduction in 2018. As it’s a dive watch, it has a unidirectional rotating titanium bezel.
