Ulysse Nardin is the Official Timing Partner of The Ocean Race. Time is at the heart of this great race, not only when it comes to timing the competition and records, but also because it is time to act responsibly. That is why they are also the Time to Act partner of The Ocean Race, committing to the responsible use and conservation of the world’s ocean.

From the sea to the wrist Ulysse Nardin and The Ocean Race are seeing their shared commitment realised with The Ocean Race Diver, which will be the official timekeeper for the open-sea sailing race.

Truly dedicated to ocean preservation, Ulysse Nardin has launched The Ocean Race Diver watch designed to be the first diver collection made with sustainable materials.


This unique timepiece is the official watch of The Ocean Race.

Ulysse Nardin is also partnering with one of the race’s most eco-focused competitors: the 11th Hour Racing Team. It is time, more than ever, to keep the ocean blue.

With this new sophisticated and environmentally friendly watchmaking creation, the two partners are making a pledge to protect the Ocean and start the countdown for positive results by 2030.

Classic or unconventional, simple or complex, for men or women, this collection of calibers is one of the most extensive and diverse in the industry. It is based on a culture of innovation, independence and quality that has made Ulysse Nardin one of the most advanced brands in creative watchmaking.

“Creating “new from old” and regenerating materials, is our way of making people aware of ocean conservation.”

The Diver The Ocean Race made from recycled fishing nets is the first sustainable luxury watch to be launched on the market. To help us in this mission, we have put our trust in young designers from Brittany who have created the very first fishing net recycling company in France.

FIL&FAB, a start-up in the field of industrial design and transition, recovers disused nets from French fishing ports and recycles them into polyamide granules called Nylo®.
