Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver Chronometer Automatic Watch Review

Updated on January 6, 2015

Marine Diver

Ulysse Nardin Marine Diver watches feature a certified self-winding movement, water resistance up to 300 meters, a security crown, and broad luminous hands and indexes. The unidirectional rotating bezel (the singular clockwise motion being a safety feature to prevent oxygen related measurements from being scrambled if the bezel gets an accidental hit), embellished with wave guilloche, concludes the primary list of characteristics that make this line a robust collection of high-end diver timers.

Unlike the Maxi Marine chronograph models, this one eschews complications except the basic date, seconds subdial (Ulysse Nardin trademark oversized seconds hand), and power reserve at twelve o'clock. Marine chronometers present a distinctive classic look with a navy officer feel – it's not a diver's watch per se, but a precision instrument for unstable circumstances.

Strap or Bracelet

The watches come equipped with a rubber strap or a stainless steel bracelet, the former being the more interesting, and possibly function oriented of the two. The strap usually includes a metallic element that compliments the main case material, and carries the brand logo. Bracelets consist of three stripes of large blocks, one of them too showing the brand anchor.

Marine chronometers display a pocket watch inspired dial: a busy face with large Roman numerals (Arabic in Maxi Marine) on a single tone backdrop (enamelled in the anniversary 160 variation), and a pair of nifty hands – spades for the hours and diamonds for the minutes. Leather straps in stead of rubber ones reinforce the traditional character of this line.


For the cases, designers employ stainless steel, titanium, rose gold, and platinum – the last two indicating a luxury, dressy utility, the other pair a more functional role. In terms of color, Marine Diver opts for neutral whites, gray, and black – a trend that changed dramatically in Ulysse Nardin's Maxi Marine Diver watches.
