As dark and brooding as a steely storm tossed sea, the new Ulysse Nardin Black Sea Chronograph guides its wearer with exacting precision and endurance.
With a water resistance of 200 metres, and fitted with a rubberised screw crown for added water-resistance, the Black Sea Chronograph features Superluminova on the dial for sharp, luminescent visibility in the darkest of places. The unidirectional turning bezel is engraved with beautifully sympathetic flowing lines.
Built for endurance, its 45.8 mm diameter case is made from stainless steel coated with rubber and finished with a sapphire glass case back. The buckle, as well as other segments of the watch, is crafted from ceramic, while its rubber strap is designed for comfort and flexibility.
The Black Sea Chronograph seconds hand also features the Ulysse Nardin anchor at its base. The permanent seconds indicator is at the 3 o’clock position while at 9 o’clock is to be found the 30 minutes counter. The date is located at 4 o’clock, and 6 o’clock indicates a 12-hour counter detailed with a red and blue hand.
The rubberised pushers offer are easy to use even in tricky underwater condtions.
A moody, monochromatic black chronograph that looks elegant both on land and under the sea.
