Ulysse Nardin Blends Style with Sustainability

Posted November 11, 2022 in Watches & Jewelry by Janine St.Denis

Every year, discarded nets kill nearly 100,000 whales, dolphins, sea lions, seals and turtles, according to World Animal Protection. Partnering with Norrøna, Ulysse Nardin once again demonstrates its commitment to safeguarding a future for the planet with the launch of the Limited-Edition DIVER NORRØNA Arctic Night. The most sustainable watch in Ulysse Nardin’s portfolio, the wrist strap is made from recycled fishing nets, with scratch closing side case and case back made 40% Carbonium®. The sandblasted dial is made from 60% Nylo® Dial Black made from recycled fishing nets, and embossed and double X, with white Super-LumiNova® markers and hands.

Each of the Limited-Edition timepieces are individually numbered from 1 to 29 and sold with an arktis Gore-Tex® Pro Norrøna jacket. To symbolize the union of the two brands, both the unique Pro Norrøna jacket and the exclusive DIVER NORRØNA Arctic Night timepiece will feature the logos of the two brands.

Paying homage to its name, the design of the Limited-Edition DIVER NORRØNA Arctic Night is inspired by the reflection of Norwegian nature. The black, gray and white color palette reflects the Baltic’s iconic fjords and volcanic rocks – some of the most well-preserved geological formations in the world. Ulysse Nardin also partner with the Norwegian polar explorer and adventurer Borge Ousland, who used both the new black monochrome Diver watch and the jacket he designed in collaboration with Norrøna during his last expedition. As the first person to complete solo crossings of both the Arctic and the Antarctic, Borge braved nature’s elements exploring the Polar Ocean, however, the new DIVER NORRØNA Arctic Night duo is equally at home in a cold city or in the great wilderness of your imagination.
