Long feared and misunderstood, the Great White shark is the apex predator of the ocean and now becomes immortalized by Ulysse Nardin in the newest edition to the brand’s diver watch collection: Diver Chronograph Great White. For too long this beast has sent shivers down the backs of divers, swimmers, surfers, and anyone who ventured into the water. Now, thanks to better understanding through research and preservation efforts, the Great White is taking its place as the hero of the seas, a critical part of the ocean’s ecosystem by maintaining balance in the food chain.
The Diver Chronograph Great White follows a long tradition of shark named diver watches at Ulysse Nardin including a women’s Great White Diver launched in 2019. In 2020, Ulysse Nardin partnered with Great White Shark research organization, OCEARCH, whose mission is to provide open-source data on the species through its program of catch, study, tag and release.
Soon after Ulysse Nardin and OCEARCH forged their partnership, a young adult female Great White was caught and tagged off the coast of Massachusetts and named Andromache becoming Ulysse Nardin’s first official shark ambassador. She is currently off the coast of Nantucket and can be tracked through OCEARCH here: https://www.ocearch.org/tracker/detail/andromache.
In honor of this diver watch and the on-going partnership with OCEARCH, together they announce the capture, study, release of the newest UN brand ambassador, Ulysses, measures 12 feet 4 inches long and weighs in at 990 lbs. adult male Great White tagged in the North Atlantic Sea off Ironbound Island, Novia Scotia on September 14, 2021 at 12:00am. Now a champion for ocean sustainability, Ulysses joins the UN family including Andromache, Fred Buyle, and more. These great names continue to highlight the much-needed work and shed light on the environment. Follow Ulysses now at: https://www.ocearch.org/tracker/detail/ulysses.
In respect to the mighty Carcharodon Carcharias, Ulysse Nardin launches a new 44mm chronograph in titanium with white concave unidirectional rubberized bezel. The dial in grey evokes the skin of the shark and the white rubber straps are accented with a silhouette of the animal. Engineered to withstand 300-meter depth, the new diver watch is designed to habitat in the undersea environment right alongside its namesake.
