Ulysse Nardin Unveils ‘Freak’ Watch Made From Titanium And Carbon Fiber
Get your freak on.
As Ulysse Nardin says, its aptly named “Freak Watch” has “no hands, no dial and no boundaries,” and the Freak Watch [X OPS] carries on that same legacy in impressive, intricate fashion.
Introduced at Watches and Wonders Shanghai, the latest Freak Watch joins a line of a dozen watches under the same umbrella, each with its own flair and flavor.
There’s the sporty, $68,600 Ulysses Nardin Freak One Watch, which “epitomizes our commitment to innovation and excellence,” the watchmaker said, and the Freak [X OPS] is a touch more rugged and sporty, as it’s outfitted with a dark green NATO strap.
The 43mm Freak [X OPS] is crafted from titanium and treated with a black DLC coating, and its flanks are made from carbon fiber composite with a wavy, almost topographical design.
The UN-230 flying carousel movement operates in smooth, eye-catching fashion, with a balance wheel and escapement that are suspended by one bridge that functions as the minutes hand, with a second bridge functioning as the hour hand.
In similar fashion to the rest of the Freak Watch line, this innovation comes with a hefty price tag: The Freak [X OPS] retails for $33,800 online at Ulysse Nardin.
