Any takers for an under-water companion?
Geneva Watch Days started off just two years ago in 2020. Despite the short duration of its existence, it has become a regular watch event that has deeply embedded its roots in the watch industry. Unlike Watches and Wonders, Geneva Watch Days is a de-centralized exhibition. What does that mean?
Like regular exhibitions, all exhibitors showcase their launches under one roof, the members of Geneva Watch Days showcase their newly launched timepieces in their individual boutiques/ showrooms
So, who are these members? Geneva Watch Days was launched by a pool of Founding Benefactor Brands including Bulgari, Breitling, De Bethune, H. Moser & Cie, MB&F, Ulysse Nardin and Urwerk. Several additional Maisons have already officially joined the event, as Benefactor or Associate Members: Jacob & Co, Arnold & Son, Doxa, Frédérique Constant, Atelier de Monaco, Alpina, Greubel Forsey, Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Phillips in association with Bacs and Russo, and Reuge. Bianchet, Czapek, and Louis Erard have joined as Regular Members.
Moving on to the timepieces that caught our eye from Ulysse Nardin. The newly launched Lady Diver Rainbow edition. This young and sporty looking 39mm timepiece is water resistant up to 300 meters. Its dazzling design is extremely eye-catching to say the least. There are 40 stones on the unidirectional bezel of this watch that ensures it catches light even in the darkest depths of the ocean. The Lady Diver comes in two variants, white and black, both of which are a limited edition of just 300 timepieces each.
The Lady Diver Rainbow successfully combines beauty and functionality, with an array of colours and silicium technology that powers the watch. Why silicium, you may ask? Silicium has become one of the most beneficial materials for watchmakers since the 2000s. It has exceptional properties, it is totally non magnetic, extremely light and elastic. It doesn’t deform with time which makes it very durable, neither does it require lubrication and it’s also resistant to corrosion. Thanks to a silicium dioxide layer that stabilizes the parts and makes them insensitive to thermal variations.
The white Lady Diver Rainbow has a stainless steel case and a silver dial. It comes with either white structured leather strap. The black variant also has a black stainless steel case. The straps are the same as the white variant with the only exception that the black leather strap is black and has white stitches. The buckles differ in colour just like the case, with the white variant having a stainless steel tang buckle and the black with a black ceramic tang buckle.
So, ladies, if you are looking at a new underwater adventure, you now know about a new companion that can potentially accompany you in the dark depths of the sea. The Ulysse Nardin Lady Diver Rainbow is a sure bet!
