Although Ulysse Nardin copy may not be a household name, it is a highly recognized and respected brand in the luxury watch industry. The true Swiss watch manufacturer, Ulysse Nardin was actually founded in 1846 170 years ago. That man was Ulysse Nardin, a watch manufacturer that specializes in high-precision nautical astronomical watches, many of which have been used in world navigation. era. In 1996, the brand launched the “Ocean Chronograph 1846”, whose dial is a miniature version of the old Ulysse Nardin astronomical clock device used for navigation. It wasn’t until 2003 that Ulysse Nardin launched the Maxi Marine Diver series specially designed for underwater exploration.
Since then, Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver has become the brand’s iconic timepiece. Today, we take a look at three different versions of this ultra-luxury sports watch.
First, we obtained the platinum Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver Ref. 260-32-3A. On the side of the 43mm white gold case, you will see a unique digital nameplate on the left.
The case is equipped with a blue lacquer dial with a checkered pattern. Like the diving watch, this white gold Maxi Marine Diver includes a large amount of light from the oversized scale to the skeleton center hand. Also pay attention to the power reserve dial and small seconds dial, imitating the brand’s original navigation astronomical clock navigation clock. Inside the sub-dial is a circular date window with an inverted magnifying lens.
Matching the blue dial is the blue unidirectional bezel, but this time with a wavy pattern. The blue tone is a blue rubber strap with a white gold link to make it more comfortable to wear; the white gold deployment buckle can ensure the best safety of the wrist.
Turn the watch and you will see the automatic movement of the astronomical clock certified by COSC works through the sapphire bottom cover. With a water resistance of 200 meters, you do n’t have to dive into this luxurious platinum watch, but you can certainly complete the task if you want.
Rose Gold Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver
Starting from the platinum version, now we look at the rose gold Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver ref. 266-58-3. The 43mm rose gold case is decorated with a rose gold unidirectional diver’s bezel. The wavy background is in sharp contrast with the highly polished raised figures.
The cream plaid dial complements the external gold and black design elements and is home to the familiar Maxi Marine Diver layout with a large hollowed sword-shaped pointer, trapezoidal scale, power reserve indicator, small seconds and discreet date window.
The black rubber strap incorporates the iconic metal link of rose gold, while the expandable buckle has a rose gold appearance and titanium interior. Maxi Marine Diver reference. 266-58-3 has a sapphire bottom cover, which can provide higher waterproof performance at 300 meters.
Stainless steel Ulysse Nardin Maxi marine diver
Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver reference number is “Blue Surf” special edition. 263-36 is more approachable due to its stainless steel structure. Maxi Marine Diver Blue Surf has a limited edition of only 1846 pieces to commemorate the company’s founding year. The name is taken from the blue wavy dial in the 43 mm stainless steel case. On that striking dial, we saw the layout of the Maxi Marine dial similar to the previous precious metal version we introduced, except for the large silver wave at 12 o’clock.
The blue bezel includes a wavy pattern similar to the series, setting the background for raised steel numbers and marks. This time, Ulysse Nardin Blue Surf no longer uses rubber straps, but is equipped with all-steel chain bracelets, emphasizing the daily sports charm of luxury diving watches.
Interestingly, the automatic movement observed through the sapphire bottom cover has also been color-processed and appears blue, fully in line with the theme of this Ulysse Nardin timepiece.
With the excellent design and technical capabilities of Maxi Marine Diver from Ulysse Nardin, another attractive aspect of having one of them is that you wo n’t find it in the wild like ordinary Rolex Submariner or Omega Seamasters. A high-end diving watch is different from the rest.
