Harry Winston. Ocean Zalium Variation Yellow

The Ocean collection, launched in 1998, strikes a subtle balance between sporty allure and sophisticated elegance. Our favourite for the summer? The Zalium Variation Yellow features an openwork dial inspired by the Manhattan Bridge, featuring off-centre hours and minutes, seconds, retrograde days, and date.

Panerai. Submersible QuarantaQuattro Luna Rossa

Official sponsor of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team for the 37th America's Cup, Panieri launches a limited edition of 1,500 pieces made from steel designed to meet the demands of the ocean race. With its patented crown guard, rubberised crown, and unidirectional rotating bezel, this watch is the diver's ally.

Rolex. Oyster Perpetual Yacht Master 42

In yellow gold for the first time, the Yacht-Master 42 reveals itself in a new light in 2022. This version, featuring a bi-directional rotating bezel with a graduated Cerachrom disc in relief and the original model's Oysterflex bracelet, benefits from an optimised Chromalight display. The indexes and hands are filled or covered with a new exclusive luminescent material for prolonged emission intensity.

Tudor Pelagos FXD

Tudor is teaming up with the French Navy—it became an official supplier in 1961. This piece stands out for its 120-notch, bi-directional rotating bezel, which is graduated backwards from 60 to 0. It may not comply with the ISO 6425:2018 standard for divers’ watches, but it meets the needs of combat swimmers using the specialist technique known as “navigation by successive headings”.

Superocean Heritage’57 Outerknown

A collaboration with Outerknown, a sustainable clothing brand co-founded by surfer Kelly Slater. This chronometer incarnates the laid-back surfing lifestyle in California or Hawaii during the Fifties and Sixties. Retro look, bronze-coloured dial, ECONYL-yarn strap, COSC certification... It's the business!

Ulysse Nardin Diver
The Ocean Race

Here is the official watch for The Ocean Race round-the-world yacht challenge, due to kick off on 15 January 2023 in Alicante, Spain. The movement components are 95% sourced within a 30 km radius of the manufacturer and half of them come from recycling. The case is from Nylo (recycled polyamide from fishing nets), Carbonium (from scrap aircraft parts) and recycled steel. Finally, the velcro strap is from recycled fishing nets.
