New Ulysse Nardin Diver Net OPS and Diver X Skeleton OPS

Two new diving products in fashionable camouflage colors, designed with environmental protection in mind.

One of the important trends in the modern fake watch industry is the emphasis on environmental protection. Especially when it comes to innovative materials, the production of which reduces CO2 emissions. For Ulysse Nardin, the debut in this direction was the Ulysse Nardin Diver Net watch, released in 2020. The two new products in the Diver series are also designed with environmental considerations in mind and feature a stylish camouflage design.

Ulysse Nardin Diver Net OPS
This model features a range of eco-friendly materials, including recycled fishing nets and carbon-carbon composites. The latter is commonly used in the manufacture of aircraft fuselages and wings. In the new product, the side parts of the case and the back cover are made of it. Case dimensions – 44 x 14.81 mm. Waterproof depth is 300 meters.

Everything else is made from recycled stainless steel. Ulysse Nardin claims that with this approach they are able to reduce their environmental impact by 40%. Visually, the cheap watch features a rotating carbon alloy bezel with a marble pattern. In addition to the khaki strap made from recycled fishing nets, there is also an optional green rubber strap with a black ceramic buckle.

The dial is sandblasted in khaki with an X-shaped cutout in the center. Beige Super-LumiNova luminous paint with a green glow makes your index finger gleam in the dark. There is a seconds counter and integrated date window at 6 o’clock, balanced by a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock.

This model is powered by the Ulysse Nardin UN-118 base movement, equipped with a DiamonSil escapement and silicon hairspring. The mechanism is assembled from 50 jewels, is self-winding, has a balance frequency of 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 60 hours.

Ulysse Nardin Diver X Skeleton OPS
This is essentially a skeleton version of the previous model. Therefore the water resistance is low (200 meters). Also 44mm in diameter, the case is slightly thicker (15.7mm). There are also carbon alloy details here, especially on the bezel and movement. However, in order to reduce weight, the case and case back are made of titanium and have been sandblasted and DLC coated.

This model has an X-shaped element in the center of the dial, which is also backlit with beige Super-LumiNova. The khaki fabric strap is partly made from recycled fishing nets. As an alternative, the watch also comes with a green rubber strap. It is secured to the wrist via a folding clasp made of black ceramic and PVD-coated titanium.

This model is powered by the UN-372 movement. If you turn the copy watch over from the back, you will notice that the large X-shaped rotor has a cutout area so as not to obscure the view of the mechanism. The balance oscillates at 21,600 vph and has a power reserve of 72 hours.
