Out of the 300 numbered pieces issued to the world, the first 100 are immediately available through subscription only on Ultramarine's website, at a preferential price.
With a design inspired by famous navy chronometers, the Ultramarine Morse incorporates all the features of a high-quality watch: 100 percent Swiss manufactured, the strong Eterna Caliber 39 automatic GMT movement offering 65 hours of power reserve, a waterproof case up to 330 feet and a hand-sewn leather watchband.
The Ultramarine Morse achieves its founder and designer Lionel Bruneau's vision: "I wanted to make Swiss timekeepers that are truly pleasant to wear and to look at, in limited quantities but at a fair price."
What makes the Morse such a special watch and a great value for the money is its rarity: only 300 lucky people will own it. By cutting the distribution and marketing costs but, above all, by foregoing the industry's high margins, Ultramarine stands out for its exceptional but accessible products.

The most important factor in the invention of products that add convenience to our lives is the need. The inventors, who think that a new solution is necessary, find new solutions for the problems and develop innovative products. The Ferraris brothers made our life easier with the inCharge they designed. I talked with Lorenzo Filiberto Ferraris about Ferraris Group Sagl and inCharge.
An architect does not need to design large-scale buildings or houses to show his or her creativity. Small size minimalist projects such as "Cabin on a Rock" can reflect its architects' perspectives with all the details. I talked to Isamu Kanda, the architect of this minimalist building, about his career and his projects.
Make a quick start, decide to right maneuvers at the right moment while sliding on a tiny sled in the ice tunnel, always try to be faster, and reach to the end of the track as soon as possible. This is the way I can define 'Skeleton' in a non-technical format. I had the chance to interview Janine Flock, 2015 Overall World Cup Winner Skeleton Athlete, about her career and the importance of individual sponsorship in winter sports.
Technology advances every day and adds new fun to our lives. VR headsets are one of the most important examples of this. Now, technology companies are developing tools to make everything more realistic and present their new products one by one. Beijing-based LUCI presents the World's First Immersion-on-Demand Personal Wearable.
We love to experience new cuisines and taste new dishes and delicacies. We like some of them and we want to eat it again, but we do not even prefer to taste some of them again. However, Italian cuisine has a special place, everyone loves Italian tastes. I talked to Chef Paolo Gallotti about his career and Vero Italian.
