Ulysse Nardin’s Latest Diver X Watch Is Made from Recycled Plastics

Ulysse Nardin long ago established itself as a maker of arguably the most accurate marine chronometers on the planet, with the company’s heritage dating back over 175 years to aid 19th-century navies and seafarers on their most difficult travails. Today, the brand partners with the European yacht competition The Ocean Race for a new addition to the exclusive Diver X series of watches.

Always undergirding its expertly crafted timepieces with a design language that’s as original as it is uncompromised, the Swiss horologist has created the Diver X with aggressive lines and the collection’s signature double X on the face of the watch. Following the Diver X Nemo Point, Skeleton, and Antarctica editions, the new Ocean Race edition coincides with the two brands’ united pledge to protect the oceans and hopefully see a significant positive difference by the year 2030.

Powered by an in-house, self-winding UN-118 movement comprised of 280 parts and an anti-magnetic escapement, the timepiece is built with a 44mm case that’s composed of 60% Carbonium (a proprietary carbon material) and 40% recycled polyamide plastics from used fishing nets. As a nod to its own eco-friendliness, the watch is accented with green trim on the matte charcoal dial and smoked black bezel, as well as stitched into the fabric strap. The dial features a small seconds subdial and date window at six o’clock, along with a power reserve indicator at twelve.

The Diver X The Ocean Race is water-resistant up to 300m and has 60 hours of power reserve. Limited to just 200 pieces, the watch can be purchased in Ulysse Nardin boutiques for $11,500.
