Ulysse Nardin unveils new sustainable capsule collection

Sustainability is the need of the hour and luxury watch brand Ulysee Nardin’s commitment to sustainability has been evident over the years. Being a part of the brand’s core philosophy, Ulysse Nardin has a natural interest in the marine world and has been using discarded fishing nets and other recycled materials to create watches such as the Diver The Ocean Race limited to 200 pieces.  Adding to their portfolio of sustainable watches is Ulysee Nardin’s new capsule collection with two watches namely, the Diver Net OPS and the Diver X Skeleton OPS. The Ulysee Nardin watch can be defined as the epitome of coolness with its black DLC carbonium case contrasting with the multiple hues of kaki. ⁣ The duo watches focus on high-horological timepieces with a modern and sports touch.

⁣First introduced in 2020 as a concept watch, the Diver X Skeleton diving watch was swiftly brought to market, thus attesting to Ulysse Nardin’s innovative spirit while embodying a fundamental mission dear to the Maison: sustainability.​ Four years later, Ulysse Nardin has managed to push the boundaries of sustainability sourcing cutting-edge and innovative materials. ​The ultra-modern design is confirmed by the huge skeleton X structure that dominates the dial with hints of kaki, matching the fabric strap, partly made from upcycled fishing nets.
