Diver Net: from the sea to the wrist

Diver Net: from the sea to the wrist

Like a message of gratitude delivered to the ocean, Ulysse Nardin focuses its efforts on the search for recyclable materials recovered from the sea. From the ocean to the wrist, DIVER NET is an innovative solution, a concept watch designed to limit its environmental impact and promote sustainability at the level of excellence.

Ulysse Nardin has turned its efforts towards researching and developing solutions for the growing plastic pollution crisis in our oceans. The watchmaker has implemented a dedicated research unit to studying materials from the sea, particularly the characteristics of oyster shells, algae, marine PET (plastic bottles) and polyamide fishing nets. The team is currently researching several avenues of sustainable innovation for future watchmaking projects.

In October 2020, Ulysse Nardin marked the first milestone in its commitment to the marine circular economy with the launch of the new “R-STRAP”. The strap made of fishing nets is compatible with the DIVER, MARINE and FREAK X watches and made from recycled fishing nets, one of the main sources of ocean plastic pollution.

Today, Ulysse Nardin is taking their commitment further by introducing the DIVER NET, a concept watch in which each trim element has been designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. A totally innovative and “upcycled” watch for which the search for suppliers was key.

For the case, middle, back and bezel decoration of the DIVER NET, Ulysse Nardin has placed its trust in three young Breton designers who have created the first fishing net recycling sector in France. FIL&FAB recovers nets that are no longer in use from harbors and transforms them into polyamide pellets, a raw material that is highly resistant to friction. These partners have an industrial design and transition background, with a real sensitivity to the product.

Diver Net: from the sea to the wrist

“A design object is creating one which has been thought out from start to finish to fulfill its functions without damaging the environment. Our association with Ulysse Nardin is natural: it is inevitably first and foremost linked to the sea, to Ulysses, the Odyssey, adventure, exploration, gusts of wind, salt spray and so on. We also share the desire to produce reliable objects, made to last, while reducing the ecological impact. Today, we are devoting our energy to trying to curb environmental problems, and no initiatives should be considered too small. Recycled materials are a necessity for the future.” Yann Louboutin, one of the three founders of FIL&FAB

The research around the DIVER NET has consisted of redesigning its trim elements, leading the watch to feature a wrist strap made from PET plastic from the sea, transformed into reels of thread by the Swiss company TIDE. This supplier is also working to stop the production of virgin plastic at its source and use the huge resources already available. In its search for low-impact solutions, Ulysse Nardin has also replaced the traditional sapphire glass by a transparent ceramic glass, machined in the Swiss Jura.

The transparent ceramic glass is a material used with the goal of having a lower environmental impact by limiting energy when it is manufactured. The innovation department has thus appraised and tested several solutions, which may be extended to other products.

The DIVER NET is a concept watch that explores important environmentally-friendly innovations while keeping the brand’s tradition of brilliant watchmaking alive. In fact, the silicon technology of the UN-118 movement can be admired through the back of its 44mm case. This concept diver watch is equipped with a concave inverted unidirectional bezel, also made of recycled fishing nets, with a curved transparent ceramic glass instead of a traditional sapphire glass.

The white, gray and green dial, with its majestic white “UN” lettering, heralds the mechanical marvel that sits within it. On the hour-markers and hands, the acid green Superluminova makes it easier to see the time in the dark. Green touches – symbolizing nature – are omnipresent: on the dial, bezel, crown protector and on the stitching on the recycled PET strap. The dial also features a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock, as well as a date window and a small second hand at 6 o’clock.

“The sea has always been part of our brand’s DNA and exploration has always been our spearhead. There is generally a strong willingness and interest of the staff members to support initiatives to improve the brand’s environmental performance. Our intention is not to be the first to innovate with sustainable materials, but rather to show the watch industry that it is possible to make our customers aware of recycled materials, even for luxury items. We would be very happy if our innovations were somehow ‘open-source’.”Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Ulysse Nardin.

Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture Swiss Made watchmaking excellence

The Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture epitomises this approach. “Highlife” is the revival of a legendary line, part of an historic collection that has shaped the face of luxurious and affordable contemporary Swiss Made watchmaking. “Perpetual Calendar” describes a level of complication to which few brands have access, an indication of technical mastery patiently acquired over the course of more than 30 years’ watchmaking experience. Finally, “Manufacture” is a declaration, about belonging to an exclusive club of watchmakers capable of designing, producing, assembling and testing their own timepieces.

Complete with a perpetual calendar, this piece is powered by the Manufacture FC-775 caliber, a self-winding mechanical movement. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph, it has a power reserve of 38 hours. Its perlage and Côtes de Genève can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback.

As for the dial, the Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture is characterised by three counters: day at 9 o’clock, month and leap year at 12 o’clock, date at 3 o’clock. A moon phase at 6 o’clock completes the set. Discreet controllers placed in the middle of the case make it possible, as with the crown, to adjust all the indications. For optimum legibility, the hand-polished hands and index hour markers are tinged with luminescent material.

Three different variations of the Highlife Perpetual Calendar Manufacture are already available. The first is characterised by two-tone styling, combining steel and rose gold plating on the bezel, bracelet and crown. Out of the white decorated dial come rose gold-plated hands and index hour markers. The piece is also supplied with a textured black rubber strap featuring a rose gold-plated buckle.

The second version is mostly plain blue with silver hands the same colour as the index hour markers. The original steel bracelet is complemented by a second blue rubber strap with a steel pin buckle.

Finally, the third version comes with a black leather strap, complemented by a second rubber strap, also in black. Modern and refined, the piece features a white dial with silvered index hour markers and hands, filled with luminescent material.

Ateliers deMonaco unveils its latest creation: the Admiral Chronographe Flyback Stradivari

Ateliers deMonaco unveils its latest creation: the Admiral Chronographe Flyback Stradivari

Ateliers deMonaco unveils its latest creation: the Admiral Chronographe Flyback Stradivari

Produced in partnership with the architect and designer Luca Stradivari, a direct descendant of legendary luthier Antonio Stradivari – creator of the famous Stradivarius violin – the new Admiral Chronographe Flyback Stradivari watch is a wonderfully refined and beautifully orchestrated device. Available in four limited editions (steel, 18 carats rose gold, white gold and yellow gold), fans of fine watchmaking are sure to appreciate the difference this striking creation with its geometric dial and ingenious chronograph flyback function will make to daily life.

The meeting of two universes

Italian design and watchmaking appear to be a natural fit. Both are arts practised at the highest level and instrumentalised by exceptional objects, cleverly constructed from choice materials. They require knowledge of materials, finesse in execution, harmony of lines and carefully preserved know-how, to which only the designers and artisans hold the secret.

Ateliers deMonaco

It was in Monaco, where the watch brand began, that these two worlds were brought together. The talented architect and designer Luca Stradivari teamed up with Ateliers deMonaco to create something of great quality with real personality. Eager to make the most authentic and – on occasion – the wildest dreams come true, Luca Stradivari has infused the new Admiral Chronographe Flyback Stradivari watch with his exhilarating creative energy. His keen eye for curves, lines and perspective has influenced the silhouette of this timepiece, its relief and dynamism as daring as its creator.

Ancestral inspiration

More than an architect and designer, Luca Stradivari, has also inherited a particular sensibility from his ancestors that has undoubtedly intensified his pursuit of perfection. He can in fact claim to be a direct descendant of Antonio Stradivari, the renowned luthier who designed the finest violin of all time, the famous Stradivarius.

Luthiers and watchmakers share the same passion for excellence. Between the dancing cogs and the accuracy of the keys, their expertise comes down to long hours of demanding and meticulous work. Attention to detail and precision of movement set the tone for these creations being handcrafted in workshops by artisans dedicated to designing the perfect instrument.

This is demonstrated by the fact that 300 years on, no one has definitively solved the mystery of the legendary Stradivarius and its uniquely special sound. In spite of the many theories surrounding the specific make-up of the varnish used, the internal wood structure, its chemical treatment – or even micro-glaciation – for improving its resonance, none of it has been established for sure to this day.

Growing up in a world where he came into contact with very finely crafted objects produced to the highest standards from an early age, Luca Stradivari has developed his vision of the perfect object made from the finest materials.

High-quality finishes

What makes a great instrument for measuring time? Its contours, personality, materials and finishes. The new Admiral Chronographe Flyback Stradivari timepiece has it all.

Housed in a 42 mm case enhanced by a raised middle, the well-defined black geometric dial with intertwining lines capable of transporting its admirers to other horizons reveals the dreamlike spirit of Luca Stradivari. Coated and curved, bold polished triangular hour markers in opposite directions frame this fantasy and give the piece its dynamism. Elegant dauphine hands indicating the hours, minutes and seconds of the chronograph glide over the signature of the architect and designer, given pride of place at 6 o’clock. At 9 o’clock, you’ll find the small seconds counter and on the opposite side, the chronograph’s minutes counter.

In keeping with its passion for Fine Watchmaking, Ateliers deMonaco has given its latest creation an open case back allowing the dMc-760 calibre to be admired. Decorated by hand, there is intricate circular satin-finishing, perlage, Côtes de Genève, chamfering and traits tirés adorning the bridges. Completing the piece is the signature 22 carat gold oscillating weight, a feature of all the brand’s automatic watches, carefully revolving around the movement. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph, it has a power reserve of 38 hours.

Fine Watchmaking, Ateliers deMonaco

There are four limited edition models available: one steel model limited to 88 pieces and 36 in 18 carat gold, including: 12 white gold, 12 yellow gold and 12 rose gold.

Finally, to ensure the various elements can be appreciated in exceptional detail, the two sapphire crystals on the case (bezel and case back) benefit from an anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

A patented mechanism

The flyback function first appeared in 1936, enabling pilots and elite athletes to time themselves over long and short distances. A straightforward concept, it allows the chronograph to be stopped, reset and restarted with a single press of the push-piece, rather than three successive presses.

True to its goal of making complications both easier to use and more efficient, the patented Admiral Chronographe Flyback by Ateliers deMonaco is no exception. This feature measures a succession of elapsed times, while eliminating many repetitive and unnecessary operations. The flyback module has only 96 parts, making it one of the most efficient flyback modules in the world, as well as one of the most affordable, thanks to its ingenious construction.

AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier: Smart on Every Level

AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier

Alpina unveils its brand new smartwatch for women, the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier, available exclusively online and limited to 500 pieces. Proven technology with intelligent and customisable features is housed for the first time within Alpina’s famous sports watch for women, the Comtesse. The only detail that gives away how smart it really is? A discreet digital display at 6 o’clock that shows a set of customisable notifications on demand.

As beautiful as it is smart

Once again, Alpina is breaking boundaries and exploring new territories. With the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier, the brand founded in 1883 has applied the latest smart technology to a timeless classic in the form of a feminine and sporty chic watch. Limited to 500 timepieces, the watch is exclusively available online.

Algorithms embedded in the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier allow for some seriously smart features, like your recommended hours of sleep based on previous nights, activity level required to achieve your goal weight, suggested sports to play, alerts to get you moving or encourage you to relax (depending on your heart rate) and plenty more besides. All these features are then reviewed, analysed and collated within the dedicated Alpina Smartwatch app, available for free download and compatible with iOS and Android.

In standard mode, the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier measures the pulse rate every minute

Alpina chose quartz technology for its AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier calibre. This means that unlike nearly all smartwatches with lithium-ion batteries, the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier’s battery is rechargeable and offers up to seven days of autonomy, depending on use.

Probably the best heart rate monitor in any smartwatch

By integrating the monitor developed by Philips Wearable Sensing, the user’s heart rate can now be taken straight from the wrist for improved accuracy and measured in the moment. In standard mode, the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier measures the pulse rate every minute. In “Workout” (exercise) mode, it’s roughly every 10 seconds.

The same sensor can also be used to accurately monitor your activity, health and physical fitness. It uses an algorithm that extracts and processes this data, taking into account body movement and ambient light to provide very accurate results.

On-demand display

At first glance, there is almost nothing to differentiate this Comtesse from another, given its curvaceous 36.5 mm steel case in different shades with alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces, steel strap supplemented by a blue rubber strap and a delicate navy blue dial adorned with nine diamonds. This stylish and elegant piece is ideal for everyday wear.

One tap on the crown and the ingenious AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier momentarily reveals selected information on the digital display positioned at 6 o’clock, such as heart rate, breathing exercises, activity tracker, notifications, weather, second time zone and chronograph, among others. Lightly press the crown to switch from one function to another. It is simple, intuitive and instant. As soon as you have looked at the desired information, the digital screen returns to standby mode and is once more invisible to the naked eye.

An everyday companion, the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier can be configured down to the smallest detail. Even the order in which notifications are displayed can be customised. More than just an accessory, this timepiece is an everyday companion, worn on the wrist.

All the notifications offered by the AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier are customisable and connected to most of the popular apps: Mail, Messages, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, WeChat, Viber, Uber, KakaoTalk, Pinterest and Spotify.

Alpina chose quartz technology for its AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier calibre

Did you know?

The name “AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier” was chosen by the Alpina community in the interests of maintaining strong customer relationships. After two pre-selection rounds online and on the basis of all the suggestions that came in, Alpina kept the name that received the most votes. “AlpinerX Comtesse Glacier” came out on top and was chosen as the final name for the new connected Comtesse!
