To celebrate the launch of the DIVER Lemon Shark on World Ocean Day, Ulysse Nardin has teamed up with world-renown shark experts dedicated to the study of marine life and ocean conservation by bringing together two outstanding organizations: OCEARCH and the FIU Medina Aquarius Program in the Florida International University Institute of Environment.

Photographer Fred Buyle – a friend of Ulysse Nardin and fearless deep-sea diver based in the Azores–contributes his craft to the bio-tagging of lemon sharks in a quest to better understand these gentle members of the Carcharhinid family.

Based mainly in Florida, lemon sharks are carnivores that feed on fish and crustaceans. They tend to be able sneak upon their prey as they are easily camouflaged thanks to their yellow color, which matches that of the sandy ocean floors they inhabit.

The DIVER Lemon Shark features a black dial with a yellow lemon shark ‘signature’, a stamp of three lemon sharks on the back and a black R-STRAP made from recycled fishing nets.

The touches of yellow on the bezel, dial, crown and band pay homage to the lemon shark, recalling the color of its skin and its connection to the ocean floor. The concave bezel with a domed sapphire glass creates a sleek look.

Superluminova indexes in ‘shark gray’ adorn the dial and a yellow 0 marks the 12 o’clock position on the bezel. The lemon yellow second hand, second markers and discreet stitching on the R-STRAP distinguish this model. The DIVER Lemon Shark is available in a limited series of just 300 pieces.
