The second 50% of 2015 was an exciting time for Ulysse Nardin, continuing the brand’s establishes in conquering sea time with marine chronometers.
Following the declaration of the Le Locle-based brand’s absolute first organization at Baselworld 2015, Ulysse Nardin has taken to the oceans with Swedish challenger to the America’s Cup, Artemis Racing.
In 2015 the group took an interest in the three America’s Cup Louis Vuitton challenger races in Portsmouth, Göteborg, and Bermuda respectively.
I had the joy of accompanying Ulysse Nardin to Bermuda for the final race of 2015, however lamentably right from the start (the solitary day I was there) the wind chose to abandon the boats. Which implied that I had the option to invest more energy admiring the new Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Artemis Racing and chatting with a portion of the Artemis group and visiting the group base to find out about its bid for the world’s most established sporting prize (it originates before the advanced Olympics by 45 years).
The organization bodes well as Ulysse Nardin is a brand name with a ton of hefty marine history thanks to enterprising youthful watchmaker Ulysse Nardin, who got popular for what was to become his forte: marine chronometers. At the hour of his demise in 1876, the company he had made appreciated an incomparable standing for high-exactness marine chronometers.
Today – to a great extent because of Ulysse Nardin – marine-styled watches are making a tremendous sprinkle on the wrist. The brand has spearheaded this style in the advanced time, which has become a mark visual for the company.
Ulysse Nardin’s Marine line (what else could it be called?) is an evergreen, making it intelligent for the company to bring forward new coloring and styling for this rough, all-climate timepiece year for year.
Its signature blue coloring on both the boat designed dial and the elastic lash has additionally now loaned itself consummately to the styling of the Artemis group’s corporate tones, which recreate the blue and yellow of the Swedish flag.
Artemis Racing sails under the banner of the Royal Swedish Yacht Club, the world’s fifth most established yacht club.
Above and past that, however, blue is a significant tone at Ulysse Nardin, for it represents perhaps the main components of this present company’s authentic cosmetics: water. This unique shade of blue matches the rushes of the vast oceans (besides in Bermuda, where they can be a tropical turquoise depending on the climate conditions).
Sporty, vigorous elements
This contemporary diver’s watch’s rich case includes a fluted case band surrounding a dial portrayed by exceptionally neat markers inlaid with luminous substance – just like the hands – for amazing readability significantly under unfriendly lighting conditions: they shine in obscurity subsequent to being stacked with regular or counterfeit light.
The dial is offset with the force hold subdial on top, telling the wearer how much energy the programmed development actually has, while an auxiliary seconds dial outlines the date window at 6 o’clock.
The strikingly vigorous unidirectionally rotating bezel is reinforced with blue stepped wave-formed markings breaking up the plunge scale just as a run of the mill luminous reference marker at 12 o’clock.
The super-energetic look is completed by the elastic tie got by a stainless steel folding catch and stainless steel components on the elastic tie engraved with the Artemis logo. The strong case back is engraved with an Artemis sailing boat.
Artemis team individuals Christian Kamp, Swedish Olympic gold medalist Fredrik Lööf, and the incredible Loïck Peyron invested a lot of energy with Ulysse Nardin and the brand’s visitors during the Bermuda race weekend.
The Artemis colleagues were wearing the appealing and powerful Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Artemis Racing during the entirety of the merriments and get-togethers.
It’s not frequently that you will see marine watches tried in such genuine conditions –maybe it was the ticking four leaf clovers that encouraged the group to its stunning triumph on the Sunday. This triumph has now placed Artemis Racing in fourth position overall.
