As the watchmaker from Le Locle welcomes the international freediving champion Alessia Zecchini among its ambassadors, it is also unveiling a series of diving watches exclusively designed for women, including a limited edition bathed in white, gray and diamonds.

At just 27, Alessia Zecchini holds several world diving records, a series of awards that began in 2010 with a silver medal after spending her childhood at swimming competitions. This young Roman freediver recently became one of the famous “Ulysses”, the family of personalities from sports and the arts who represent Ulysse Nardin. For this Italian, diving provides a form of freedom and when she is alone in the middle of the silent immensity of the ocean, her only companion other than her equipment is the Lady Diver Great White on her wrist.
