It is with pride that Ulysse Nardin will join forces, for the 11th consecutive year, with the most prestigious nautical show in the world, Monaco Yacht Show, which will take place between September 25-28 2019. The symbol of this partnership: the Diver Blue Shark.
Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director of the MYS: “We are extremely proud of this partnership. Ulysse Nardin and the Monaco Yacht Show share the same values through our histories, our deepest respect for the marine world, and our desire to continuously innovate.”
From September 25-28, 2019, visitors of the show and fine watch aficionados will be able to discover Ulysse Nardin’s timepieces – including the Diver Blue Shark. Slim and sleek on the wrist, the very contemporary Diver Blue Shark model is designed for the deep but just as much at home in the city. A limited edition of just 300 pieces, it is crafted from stainless steel with a blue PVD bezel, and a blue dial and strap embellished with touches of bright orange. The case back is stamped with a “blue shark” pattern reminiscent of the watch’s older sibling, the Diver Great White 44 mm, which made its debut at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show.
“Ulysse Nardin’s long nautical heritage makes the full meaning of this partnership clear. The MYS and Ulysse Nardin share a passion for the sea, for luxury, for precision and the quest for innovation. We are extremely proud to join forces with the Monaco Yacht Show for the 11th consecutive year,” said Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Ulysse
This year, 125 superyachts will be on display in Port Hercules under the Côte d’Azur sun, as well as nearly forty luxury tenders. Ulysse Nardin’s official sponsorship of the MYS offers the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer the perfect showcase to unveil its expertise, innovation, and DNA—all deeply rooted in its nautical heritage.

About Ulysse Nardin – Manufacture of Freedom
Ulysse Nardin is the Pioneering Manufacture inspired by the sea and delivering innovative timepieces to free spirits.
Founded by Mr. Ulysse Nardin in 1846 and a proud member of the global luxury group Kering since November 2014, Ulysse Nardin has written some of the finest chapters in the history of Haute Horlogerie. The company’s earliest renown came from its links to the nautical world: its marine chronometers are among the most reliable ever made, still sought by collectors around the world. A pioneer of cutting-edge technologies and the innovative use of materials like silicon, the brand is one of the few with the in-house expertise to produce its own high-precision components and movements. This exceptional level of watchmaking excellence has earned Ulysse Nardin membership in the most exclusive circle of Swiss watchmaking, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie. Today, from its sites in Le Locle and La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, the brand’s continuing quest for horological perfection centers around five collections: The Marine, the Diver, the Classico, the Executive and the Freak. In 2019, Ulysse Nardin introduces the X-factor in watchmaking. www.ulysse-nardin.com
