Ulysse Nardin Unveils Diver X Skeleton Black in yellow & blue straps

To celebrate the partnership with UAE retailer Seddiqi, Ulysse Nardin has pre-launched 10 pieces of the Diver X Skeleton Black, with 165 more set for release next year.

Ulysse Nardin’s links with the sea are deep. Add to that the fact that the brand is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year. Combining the two thoughts, and the brand's Diver and Blast Skeleton editions, the watchmaker has added a new design to its range of horological UFOs: The Diver X Skeleton, an exclusive edition of skeleton diving watches limited to 175 timepieces.

To celebrate its partnership with Seddiqi, UAE's retailer of watches and jewellery, Ulysse Nardin is exclusively pre-launching the Diver X Skeleton in black Carbonium for the ongoing 2021 Dubai Watch Week - 10 out of the 175 new timepieces, all presented on exclusive blue rubber strap with an emblematic yellow anchor. As an added perk for those able to secure one of these rare models, in 2022 the owners will be able to acquire a novel yellow band at no additional charge at the Ulysse Nardin boutique located in the Dubai Mall.

As the new hero watch of the Diver collection, the Diver X Skeleton combines the sporty design of a Diver and the technical prowess of the Blast Skeleton. As with all of Ulysse Nardin’s Divers, the Diver X Skeleton is designed to withstand the pressures that exist at depths of 200 metres. To achieve this, it is equipped with a concave inverted unidirectional rotating bezel, which protects the domed sapphire glass from untimely impacts. 

The watch has a completely redesigned the UN-371 movement, which is visible through the 44mm case. Originally designed for the Blast Skeleton collection, it has been improved with the addition of an oscillating weight in the shape of the Ulysse Nardin’s iconic “X”. There is also a barrel cover placed at 12 o’clock in black Carbonium which is the same as the bezel, and the hours, minutes and seconds hands are coated with Superluminova.

On the bezel, Ulysse Nardin has used black Carbonium, a material originally used on its FREAK X. The case, sandblasted on the sides with satin polished lugs, has been coated in black DLC. Yellow details, such as the hour markers, the internal lines of Ulysse Nardin’s signature “X” and the protective rubber around the crown, add colour and emphasize the model’s sports origins.

The Diver X Skeleton Black comes complete with a rubber strap in either ocean blue or supercharged yellow.
