Freak ONE

Non-binding recommended retail price in USD

The Freak ONE epitomizes our commitment to innovation and excellence. The watch is powered by the caliber UN-240 Manufacture, an automatic movement with a 90-hour power reserve. The flying carrousel movement rotates around its own axis and features a silicon oversized oscillator and hairspring. The escapement is treated with DIAMonSIL for added precision and durability. The 44mm black DLC-coated titanium case has a satin finish and is complemented by a rose gold 5N bezel. The watch is fitted with a black rubber 'ballistic' textured strap, made of 30% recycled rubber from production waste by BIWI. Since it rewrote high-end watchmaking codes more than two decades ago, the Freak’s iconic form has been defined by three signature characteristics: NO DIAL, NO HANDS, NO CROWN. Movement is king as it rotates to tell the time.

The Freak ONE is a new watch inspired by the first Freak featuring its three signature characteristics: no dial, no hands and no crown.

NO CROWN - Best practice suggests that to adjust and wind a mechanical watch, you need a crown. The original Freak replaced the crown with a time setting system integrated into the bezel and was wound via a mechanism in the case back.


NO HANDS - The unconventional Freak has neither a big hand nor a little hand. Instead, its one-hour orbital carrousel tourbillon becomes the minute hand and the hour hand is replaced by a pointer on a rotating disc. A challenging design, but easy to read.


NO DIAL - Typically, mechanical watches hide their workings under a dial. But the Freak has no dial. Its movement doubles as its minute hand, while the hour hand is a pointer set on a rotating disc that sits under the movement.

"The Freak ONE is a fresh expression of who we are. It’s a highly technical watch, but it also has intense emotional value. When you set the time with the bezel, you experience something vital. This is what makes the Freak so special and why true collectors love it."
