Ulysse Nardin- Monaco YS Maxi Marine Diver

Ulysse Nardin pays homage to the Principality of Monaco – the city on the Rock facing the Mediterranean Sea by creating the Monaco YS, an addition to the Marine Diver Collection. Ulysse Nardin pays tribute to its company history related to the vast open seas since 1846 and is participating for the first time at the most prestigious Monaco Yacht Show in 2009.
Available only in a black DLC (diamond-like-carbon) treated and hardened stainless steel case, this ingenious technology allows the black case to maintain a scratch-resistant surface. The attractive wave-patterned black dial supports dark grey applied luminous indexes and red hands on the sub-dials.
The squeletted hour and minute hands are equipped with dark grey luminous material which glows in the dark. The distinctive black wave-patterned bezel with its 18 ct rose gold inlay featuring the diving scale adds to the overall design aesthetic. An exclusive black ceramic folding clasp and ceramic elements on the rubber band complement the timepiece. 
An exhibition case-back reveals an excellent view of the black winding rotor and the mechanical movement.

The self-winding movement features a power reserve indicator and an oversized small seconds register. The 42.7 mm case is fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel with a diving scale. The model is water-resistant to 200 meters. Each case is individually numbered.
The Monaco YS is limited to 100 pieces.
