Ulysse Nardin THE OCEAN RACE DIVER - from the sea to the wrist
By SENATUS Magazine | 28 February 2023

Ulysse Nardin and The Ocean Race are seeing their shared commitment realized with THE OCEAN RACE DIVER, which will be the official timekeeper for the open-sea sailing race.

With this new sophisticated and environmentally friendly watchmaking creation, the two partners are making a pledge to protect the Ocean and start the countdown for positive results by 2030.

THE OCEAN RACE DIVER timepiece made from recycled fishing nets is the first sustainable luxury watch to be launched on the market. The watch manufacture enlisted young designers from Brittany who have created the very first fishing net recycling company in France.

FIL&FAB, a start-up in the field of industrial design and transition, recovers disused nets from French fishing ports and recycles them into polyamide granules called Nylo®.

The components the UN-118 mouvement are 95% sourced within a 30 km radius of the Manufacture, half of them coming from recycling channels (recycled steel and brass in particular: 100% of Ulysse Nardin movements make use of recycled brass).

The unidirectional bezel is entirely decorated with Carbonium® (Lavoisier Composites). Carbonium® is made of the same fibers that are used for the fuselage and wings of the latest-generation aircrafts.

The manufacture of Carbonium® has a 40% lower environmental impact than other carbon composites, since it makes use of the offcuts of aircraft parts.

Created using a complex process under high pressure at high temperature, Carbonium® is a high-performance material that reveals the inner beauty of the organic pattern formed by carbon fibers that have a diameter of only 7 µm.
