This Rare Ultra-Tough 1000M Dive Watch Benefits Disabled Veterans

The watchmaking world has always had a soft spot for a well-built dive variant. And when it comes to great-looking, but purposeful examples, Ulysse Nardin is hard to beat. The company began its long-running lineage as a developer of marine chronometers; but recently, they’ve been hard at work to bring consumers the best high-end dive watches on the market — a noble pursuit made all-the-more apparent by this timepiece.

The Ulysse Nardin Diver is an attractive example that’s been built atop the company’s revered Deep Dive platform, offering marine-savvy swimmers over 1000-meters of water resistance, a stylish satin-finished black DLC titanium case, and a striking black and yellow dial. But the Diver’s visual acuity is only one piece of the grander puzzle. Nardin’s limited-edition offering has been built in collaboration with One More Wave — an organization that assists wounded or disabled veterans with surf therapy, equipment, and assistance — falling right in line with Ulysse’s love for the sea. Inside, you’ll find a dependable Caliber UN-320, which has been outfitted with silicone accents and complements the Diver’s spiral and anchor escapement. A utilitarian decompression valve, which is rare to find outside of purpose-built saturation dive watches, adorns its exterior. If you’re a fan of the watch and its mission, head to Head to Ulysse Nardin’s website, where only 100 examples will be listed for $13,500.

Purchase: $13,500
