Light weight, high strength, scratch resistance, corrosion resistance, acid resistance-these are just a few of the advantages of high-tech ceramics used in the modern watch industry. For a long time, fake Ulysse Nardin has been using this material to make watch cases and various parts of mechanical devices. Modern production technology makes it possible to obtain ceramics of any color, which provides designers with an excellent opportunity to turn the most daring creative fantasy into reality. In 2016, this material was only used for decorative purposes on the bezels of four new Diver Black Sea diving products. This time, the blue, black, white and yellow ceramic options are combined with the 45.8 mm steel case.
Diver Black Sea technology and materials
To improve wearing comfort, the Diver Black Sea steel case is treated with a layer of vulcanized rubber, and its formula and application can maximize functionality and durability. A similar coating is used in the design of the screw-in crown, combined with other structural elements to provide the watch with a water resistance of 200 meters. The main highlight of the design is the use of 3S technology to fix the bezel of the ceramic insert. The new inlay technology not only provides the most reliable shrinkage rate for ceramic components, but also provides brightness.
Four Diver Black Sea versions inspired by the diving world
Diver Black Sea is available in four colors (white, black, yellow and blue), and the fiber pattern dial matches the ceramic bezel. The wave pattern on the front panel gives the watch the necessary integrity to the design, again emphasizing the connection between accessories and the sea. The structure of the dial is vertical-a circular indicator (with seconds and date indicator) at 6 o’clock, supplemented by a power reserve hand that hangs directly below the number 12. The hour markers and hands are treated with a luminous coating to match the ceramic bezel. Both sides of the Diver Black Sea case are made of double-layer anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass. Through the back cover, you can see in detail the various components of the UN-26 self-winding movement, which provides a 42-hour power reserve for the skeleton watches. On the wrist, the new Diver Black Sea diving equipment is firmly secured by a rubber strap with a folding clasp. The blue, black and yellow bezel version comes with a black strap, while the White Diver Black Sea comes with a white rubber strap.
