Ulysse Nardin has partnered with Watches of Switzerland to introduce the new Executive Skeleton X WOS Limited Edition watch in support of nonprofit One More Wave.
One More Wave helps wounded and disabled veterans surf, providing them with the custom equipment and community needed and offering ‘surf therapy’ around the world.
Limited to 50 pieces and retailing at $25,000 (£22,800), the watch also comes with a free Ulysse Nardin surfboard if purchased in the USA.
The surfboards are all handmade by One More Wave in San Diego, California, and typically retail for $2,500 (£1,900).
Profits from the sale of the limited edition watch go straight to One More Wave.
“One More Wave has created an incredible community for wounded and disabled US veterans, and I am continuously blown away by the positivity that radiates from the group,” says François-Xavier Hotier, president of Ulysse Nardin in the US. “I’m excited that the Watches of Switzerland Group wanted to partner with One More Wave. The money and awareness raised from the order of these custom surfboards will be invaluable to the organisation.”
Meanwhile, Watches of Switzerland executive vice president, David Hurley, said: “Watches of Switzerland Group is thrilled to join our long-time partner, Ulysse Nardin, in their support of the amazing work that One More Wave does with wounded and disabled veterans.
“All proceeds of the surfboard sales will be going back to One More Wave.”
