The Ulysse Nardin Scuba Diver X Antarctica

Catching the charm of the of the South Pole and its icy.
atmosphere, the Ulysse Nardin Scuba Diver X Antarctica is a timepiece that takes inspiration.
from the frigid landscape. Consulting with Sebastian Copeland, who has been.
lucky sufficient to invest a substantial amount of time on the Antarctic.

Sporting a 44 mm titanium case, and with a special bezel, we.
have a watch that hosts an accent of ice blue at the 12 o’clock no mark,.
together with signature ribbed Ulysse Nardin bezel insert from white rubber.

caseback is a tribute to Antarctic expedition.

The Diver X Antarctica is water resistant to 300 meters, and.
hosts a bead-blasted gray.
dial treatment. It likewise has white hands and ice blue highlights on the12

these two watches take their inspiration from the Atlantic and Southern Oceans or.
the ‘Everest of the Seas.’ The locations are the Cape Horn off the southern idea.
of South America and Nemo Point in the South Pacific– also seen as the ‘middle.
of nowhere.’

All three watches are limited edition– 300 pieces– and like the Scuba Diver X Antarctica, these 2.
timepieces have a 44 mm titanium case and offer 300 meters water resistance.
The Scuba Diver X Cape Horn sports a black DLC coat, with the bezel crafted from a.
carbon composite insert. Giving the black ambiance some relief is the yellow spotted.
at the 12 o’clock absolutely no marker.

The Diver X Nemo Point is more fundamental with brushed and.
refined surfaces, however to shake things up a little, the entire bezel is.
rubberized in a deep navy blue coating. The.
blue with titanium color design gets some respite via the red zero marker at12
o’clock.

Like the Scuba Diver X Antarctica, both these watches host similar.
limited-edition casebacks– the etching of the race route with particular.
latitude and longitude collaborates of their places.
