Ulysse Nardin, the official sponsor of the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show – the World’s Luxury Yacht Showplace – has created the limited edition Monaco 2010 Marine Diver watch on the occasion of 20th anniversary of the event. Paying tribute to the historic city on the Mediterranean Sea, also honoring Ulysse Nardin’s nautical legacy in high horology, this exclusive timepiece was launched during the show conducted during September 22-25 at Port Hercules, Principality of Monaco.
This new model from the popular Marine Diver collection, the Monaco 2010 – limited to 100 pieces and individually numbered – showcases Ulysse Nardin’s evolution in watchmaking technology, beginning with the Monaco’s specially treated stainless-steel case. Having undergone a complex vulcanization process, the case (45.8 millimeters in diameter) is revealed with a matte-black rubber coating, presenting a sporty aesthetic and comfortable feel. Its exhibition case-back reveals a self-winding movement.
Another highlight of this nautical themed watch is a signature wave pattern decorating the black, structured strap and dial with its power-reserve indicator and the oversized small-seconds register. This timepiece is water-resistant to 200 meters. Strengthening its already exceptional reliability is the Monaco’s rubber band including ceramic components and an exclusive black ceramic folding clasp.
