For over 166 years Ulysse Nardin has been creating some of the most reliable marine chronometers in existence.
An icon in high horology, particularly in its historic relationship with marine navigation, Ulysse Nardin is proud to participate for the fourth consecutive year at the Monaco Yacht Show as official sponsor.

Resolutely anchored in aquatic sports, the Monaco Limited Edition timepiece is designed to tackle extreme conditions. It perfectly combines its dual function as a diving instrument and beautiful watchmaking piece. The Monaco Limited Edition has a self-winding movement featuring a 42-hour power reserve indicator, over sized small seconds and large date display.

A symbol of the vigour of youth, this powerful timepiece showcases Ulysse Nardin’s constant advances in watchmaking technology.  Its stainless-steel case, 45.8 millimetres in diameter, has been specially treated with a sophisticated vulcanisation process giving it a blue rubber coating with a remarkable appearance and a truly comfortable feel.  Its exhibition case-back reveals the self-winding movement.

To enhance its look, a wave pattern adorns the structured strap and dial.  The hour markers and hour and minute hands are covered with blue luminescent material for improved readability.  Its power-reserve indicator is situated at 12 o’clock while the small seconds and large date are displayed at 6 o’clock.  Small hands are painted blue. The sapphire crystal has been treated with an anti-reflective coating. Fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel and screwed crown, its case is water-resistant to 200 metres.

This edition is limited to 100 pieces, each individually numbered and engraved on an 18 ct gold side plate. The reliability of the Monaco Limited Edition is further strengthened by an exclusive black ceramic folding clasp and a blue rubber strap with ceramic components.

With this latest addition to the Marine Diver collection, the Manufacture in Le Locle firmly establishes its reputation as a cutting-edge watchmaker.
