Diver Perpetual Limited Edition is a watch that combines the best of two worlds, the power- ful aesthetics and technical elements of the Marina and Perpetual collection
The Ulysse Nardin Perpetual represented a revolutionary event in the watch making histoiy. Presenting the first perpetual calendar, adjustable forward and backwards only with a crown.
All the adjustments from the minute hands to the year’s indicator are synchronized, with only few rotations of the crown; the date goes forward or backward one or more days, months or even years.
At the end of the month, the date automati- cally shows the first day of the next month, while the month disk turns at the same time.
The 31st of December, die day. the date, month and year go together. It's possible to delay the calendar
The set point device is so ingenious that all the corrections can be made only with one crown. In the year 2100. when other perpetual calendars are sent to their manufacturers in order to set the right time, the Ulysse Nardin will normally function; the day's indicator can be adjusted independently.
The date indicator is big and easy to read. It is made from two disks, one in the shape of a Malta Cross for the tenths and one ring for the units. Both turn around at the same level and together they form the date's double digit
Each steel box of 42.7 mm is numbered and has a screw crown and anti reflex crystal sapphire. The bottom of the transparent box allows observing the movement of the 22 carats white gold rotor. It is also 200 meters below water proof.
The black carbon fibre sphere with hands and a luminous orange index it's perfectly coordinated with the turning bisel in the same tone.
The Diver Perpetual Limited Edition comes from a dream of adding to an everyday sports watch, the elements of a high complicated machi- ne in a limited edition of only 500 pieces that you should not miss.
