One of Ulysse Nardin's
new Maxi Marine Diver watches for 2011 is the Black Sea. It isn't wildly different from anything we've seen before, but furthers the brand's exploration of dark watches and vulcanized rubber. The case is in steel that is coated with vulcanized rubber. The matte tone has a smooth texture and offers a unique look - plus it won't scratch things that rub up against it. The entire watch is done in black tones save for the bold red accents on the dial. The hands and hour markers make a hip statement against the black background. I wonder if Ulysse Nardin was debating between "Black Sea" and "Red Sea" for the name.
Otherwise this is another Maxi Marine watch with a (I believe) 43mm wide case and rubber strap (with black metal segment). Inside the watch is a Swiss automatic movement, that has the time, subsidiary seconds dial, date, and power reserve indicator on the dial. Really a handsome and cool looking diver watch. The Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver Black Sea watch will retain for $12,900.
