Ulysse Nardin releases an evolution of its Diver Chronograph Hammerhead Shark, with the popular dive watch now featuring the self-winding manufacture chronograph caliber UN-150 with silicium escapement and balance spring. But it was actually the rich colors and solid dive watch design that caught my eye. The Diver Chronograph Hammerhead Shark is presented as a limited edition in both stainless steel (300 pieces) and 18-karat rose gold 5N (99 pieces), both versions with a deep blue dial and a subtle hammerhead shark motif. Among other details, which I’ll describe further below.
Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronograph Hammerhead Shark
Limited edition steel (300 pieces) and rose gold (99 pieces)
44mm case, screw-locked crown, pushers, solid lugs, and unidirectional turning bezel, 300m water resistance, automatic mechanical UN-150 Caliber (48 hrs power reserve, silicium escapement and balance spring)
The 30 minutes counter is located at 3 o’clock. At 6 o’clock, the date and 12-hour counter is displayed. And, at 9 o’clock rests the small seconds counter. A regal red color accents the various elements on the timepiece’s dial, including the luminous indexes, watch hands and even the lone shark. The bezel has UN’s characteristic wave pattern on top and the metal itself has a slightly differently shape to the notching — it looks great. An azure rotor with the shark decoration is visible through the open, sapphire crystal case-back.
All in, a very nice looking dive watch with great mechanical DNA inside!
Limited Edition – 300 pieces in steel (ref. 1503-151LE-3/93-HAMMER) and 99 pieces in pink gold (ref. 1502-151LE-3/93-HAMMER).
