A rocket on the wrist
The new high-tech watchmaking masterpiece developed by Ulysse Nardin is taking off, driven by a powerful solar wind. Ulysse Nardin looked to the brightest stars of the cosmos for inspiration for this new interpretation of the Freak. At first glance, the brand’s pioneering new watch resembles a space vessel with twin reactors, which will find its finest expression on the wrists of those who never doubt. This creation combining all the superlatives came into being thanks to the expertise of an integrated Manufacture; it represents the expression of contemporary luxury masterfully manifested in an avantgarde watchmaking design.
A very first automatic double oscillator with differential We designed the brand’s first double oscillator with a differential with automatic winding, made possible by the “Grinder” system.
The silicium components of the escapement of the Freak S have been coated with a layer of artificial diamond which optimizes its performance and its resistance.
The Grinder is twice as efficient as a classical automatic winding system since its energy transmission is twice as efficient as that of existing systems. It uses the smallest of wrist movements.
"The Freak is one of the ten watches that have revolutionized watchmaking over the course of the last twenty years "
