The America’s Cup is the world’s most important yachting competition. This year, Ulysse Nardin sails into the sport as an official partner of Sweden’s Artemis Racing. To celebrate the collaboration, the timepiece manufacture is launching a special edition of the Marine Diver. Limited to only 250 pieces, the new model was revealed in Gothenburg, Sweden, host to the America’s Cup World Series, which got underway last month.
Since its inception more than 160 years ago, only four countries have won the America’s Cup – the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland. Artemis Racing is striving to be the Cup’s new steward, bringing it to Europe and Sweden for the first time. Ulysse Nardin is proud to support this historical endeavor, and to commemorate it with a collectible timepiece.
The limited edition Artemis Racing Marine Diver is striking in vivid deep-ocean blue with bursts of signature Artemis Racing yellow. Highlighting the partnership is the Artemis Racing insignia on the strap, and the “Challenger 35th America’s Cup Artemis Racing” tribute inscribed on the case back. This 44mm special edition offers 300 meter water resistance, making it perfect for yachtsmen seeking a perfect blend of sleek style and rugged durability.
“Ulysse Nardin’s history of navigating the sea, paired with the DNA of innovation and technology, which is firmly established in both companies, makes this partnership a perfect match,” says Patrik Hoffmann, CEO of Ulysse Nardin. “When meeting the Artemis engineers, technicians, and craftsmen at their base in San Francisco, I quickly realized that the spirit of passion and innovation is the driving force behind this extraordinary team.”
