Ulysse Nardin , apparently a name inseparable from cruising, makes a limited edition Marine Diver to commemorate its organization with Artemis racing. The past America’s Cup race had the developing agonies of progressing from the minute by-comparison AC45 yachts to the stunning AC72 yachts ( we highlighted the progressions with Corum ). The America’s Cup 72 foot speed machine, which appears to be a misnomer to call a yacht, so we incline toward a “fly airplane on-water,” presently comes standard with a strong carbon fiber sail, double sailboat body, and the best in mechanical development. Prophet stays the group to beat, however as throughout everyday life, competition calls for remarkable exertion, and Artemis, consistent with its name, gets back to the chase. Ulysse Nardin offers The Marine Diver Artemis Racing as a nautical instrument appropriate for the massive test of arriving at cruising’s most pined for trophy.
The plunge usefulness of the watch is conspicuous in its unidirectional bezel, which is scored with a wave edge for extra hold. The profundity dominance of the 44mm case is imprinted on the dial, 300 meters. The crown screws down, more effectively in view of its elastic covering, and fits cozily inside the case watch on one or the other side. An enemy of intelligent sapphire precious stone guarantees solidness and visibility.
Additional capacities are the little seconds dial, which contains a date window at 30 seconds (or 6 o’clock). Under 12 o’clock is a force save pointer for checking the watch’s 42 hours of force hold in the programmed type UN-26 development (an ETA 2892 A2 subsidiary and not the Manufacture development that can be found in the Marine Chronometer ).
Watch sponsorship in THE most esteemed cruising race gives a brand perceivability in the game ( see likewise Omega and the devoted Seamaster ) and opportunity for extreme boasting rights. At the point when Ulysse Nardin advanced its significant Marine Chronometer into a Diver, they held the exemplary plan, however gave it a jump watch’s usefulness and wellness. The Marine Diver Artemis Racing moves from a boat’s easygoing deck, the territory of a Marine Chronometer, to a racing deck where colleagues scramble, climb over the edge, and hold tight while the sea battles back.
This commemorative watch is essential for the Artemis Team. The dial and elastic tie wear the blue and gold from the Swedish banner, an accolade for the group’s nation of inception. Sweden has always lost the America’s Cup, just 4 nations: the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland, have dominated the race. The steel identification on the lower lash is scratched with the Artemis logo, the goddess pulling her bow – mariners need rabbit’s feet. The brushed caseback is completely committed to the sponsorship with the group logo before the yacht, and the words “CHALLENGER 35th AMERICA’S CUP” above and “LIMITED EDITION” below.
