Ulysse Nardin, the Official Timekeeper of The Ocean Race, introduces their latest creation, THE OCEAN RACE DIVER CHRONOGRAPH. This exceptional timepiece celebrates the historic race’s 50th anniversary and its status as the ultimate test for racing crews on the high seas.
In collaboration with The Ocean Race, Ulysse Nardin presents a limited-edition watch that symbolizes their shared passion for the sea, adventurous spirit, and commitment to protecting the oceans. As the Official Timekeeper, Ulysse Nardin is responsible for timing the race’s legs and start countdowns. They also support the 24-Hour Speed Challenge, where the crew covering the greatest distance in 24 hours emerges victorious.
Ulysse Nardin’s dedication extends beyond timekeeping. They actively participate in Time to Act, a program aimed at combatting pollution, climate change, and overfishing. Through the Racing with Purpose initiative, developed with 11th Hour Racing, Ulysse Nardin contributes to scientific projects collecting vital data on water health during the race. This initiative deepens our understanding of climate change and plastic pollution impacts.
THE OCEAN RACE DIVER CHRONOGRAPH is a testament to Ulysse Nardin’s commitment. This limited-edition watch, with its 44mm sandblasted black DLC titanium case and Ulysse Nardin Manufacture chronograph calibre UN-150, commemorates the 50th anniversary of The Ocean Race. Water-resistant to 300 meters, it showcases the number ’50’ on the sapphire crystal case back. The watch features a Carbonium® finish on its unidirectional bezel, which incorporates upcycled fibers from aeroplane fuselage offcuts, reducing its environmental impact.
Limited to just 100 timepieces, THE OCEAN RACE DIVER CHRONOGRAPH reflects Ulysse Nardin’s dedication to The Ocean Race, ocean conservation, and marine research projects. Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Ulysse Nardin, expresses pride in supporting The Ocean Race’s commitment. As the crews continue their journey through various destinations, the race culminates in the grand finale in Genoa at the end of June.
