Ulysse Nardin Freak Diamond Sil Photomontage  6 Comments


The Ulysse Nardin Freak is a watch that I would consider the iconic watch of the past 20 years of watchmaking. A crownless watch with long power reserve that uses the movement itself as the means to tell the time as it rotates which effectively makes it a new age tourbillon that compensates for the effect of gravity. It was probably the first production watch to feature silicium/silicon parts. The watch was very much ahead of its time and consequently, much of the teething problems of using new materials was learnt through this watch. This latest iteration of the Freak makes for little or no fundamental change to the original design save for the added diamonds on the tips of the movement where the hour and minute arrows are.
