Ulysse Nardin has merged two of it designs into a single watch, introducing the signature aesthetic of its Executive Skeleton watch to its Diver collection, creating the Diver X Skeleton.

Limited to 175 individually numbered piece, the Diver X Skeleton strikes out alone as a new flagship within the Diver collection. The watch’s 44mm case and bezel are formed of Carbonium, a robust yet lightweight composite material used in the aerospace industry, before being given a blue PVD coating.

The Diver X Skeleton is able to resist water ingress to depths of 200m, with its unidirectional rotating bezel sitting proud of its sapphire crystal, protecting it from potentially catastrophic impacts underwater.

The watch’s UN-371 movement, which is usually employed within the Executive Skeleton collection, has been redesigned to take on the visual cues of the Diver collection. In order to accommodate the central blue PVD X which instantly identifies the Executive Skeleton, the Diver’s hour markers needed to be discretely fixed, giving them the appearance of floating above the dial.

Ulysse Nardin also emphasises the depth effect by building up the movement and dial in layers while applying different finishes to play with the light. A new X-shaped automatic winding rotor has been added while a blue Carbonium barrel cover can also be seen through the dial at the 12 o’clock position, matching the material used for the bezel.

The blue of the case, bezel and movement are offset by bright orange accents on the central X, the tip of the seconds hand and the five-minute markers on the bezel.

The Ulysse Nardin Diver X Skeleton is available now, priced $22,200 USD.
