The Freak is back and more of a champion than ever. Uncluttered, with the balance wheel recentered and equipped with a date function for the first time, this masterpiece now incorporates the UlyChoc safety system, a new generation of shock absorbers.
Born out of determination to continuously push the boundaries of watchmaking, the Freak collection has brought together the boldest innovations of the past fourteen years, originating both from Ulysse Nardin and the watchmaking industry as a whole. Thus the Freak was the first watch to incorporate a silicium escapement in 2001, a diamond escapement in 2005 and the Dual Ulysse escapement the same year. As stunning as ever with the bold nautical character of its Tourbillon using an anchor and sail as hands, the new FreakLab is easily legible and features the date at 4 o'clock. On the technological side, it is for the first time equipped with the UlyChoc safety system, a new generation of shock protection devices.
The Freak's avant-garde design remains unrivalled to this day. With neither dial nor hands, it is constructed so that the movement turns about its own axis. Connected together at the center of this unusual ship, the lower deck thus displays the hours, while the upper deck - which carries the gear train, the balance-wheel and balance-spring unit and the exclusive Dual Ulysse silicium escapement - shows the minutes.
