Ulysse Nardin announces a new partnership on Shark Awareness Day
Ulysse Nardin Diver Chronograph Hammerhead Shark Limited Edition
The 44mm Diver Chronograph Hammerhead Shark timepiece is limited to just 300 pieces. Turn the titanium case over, and you will see an engraving of a hammerhead shark on the case back. Touches of red are everywhere, from the bezel joint to the chronograph seconds hand, and the start/stop/reset pushers. The blue rubber strap features a red hammerhead shark sculpted into the rubber at the 12 o’clock position. The limited-edition number is visible on the side plate on the case and is engraved in red numbers. The watch is powered by the UN-150 automatic movement and has a power reserve of 48 hours.
Ulysse Nardin is a partner and supporter of the non-profit research organization OCEARCH. This organization works with researchers and educational institutions to better understand the movements and habits of sharks. OCREACH is leading the fight for shark conservation and research. Its goal is to provide the resources necessary to better understand the sharks’ role as an apex predator in the ocean’s ecosystem. They have mastered the art of observing a shark’s migratory route and the science behind their effect on marine life. OCREACH studies are vital to our understanding of the sea and prove that sharks are not bad guys when it comes to the oceans.
