Copy Ulysse Nardin
At first glance, the $9,600 Diver Le Locle might look like a beautifully maintained vintage piece. But its self-winding UN-320 manufacture movement is state-of-the-art and integrates silicium (silicon) technology. Hard and light, silicon parts are not affected by temperature nor susceptible to magnetism, unlike the Milgauss which is only resistant, and does not require lubrication.
Diver Le Locle
The black-dialed beauty features a magnified date at 3 o’clock and can be quickly set both forwards and backward. A diving watch to the core, it features highly legible Super Luminova indexes, the essential uni-directional bezel. Let’s not forget the water-resistance to 100 meters. The case-back meanwhile reveals a unique engraving of a diver in the depths of the sea, while the black strap which at first appears to be standard issue nylon is in fact constructed of durable sailcloth straight off a world-class racing yacht. This is more of a purist’s tool watch than some Replica Ulysse models, but we think its straightforward good looks and utility could appeal to collectors. Bravo.
