Swiss luxury watch manufacture Ulysse Nardin unveils a new boutique edition of its revolutionary timepiece FreakLab, a horology marvel that was originally launched at Baselworld 2015.
Since 2001, the Freak collection has reset the world of watchmaking, raising the bar with every new engineering and design feat. It was the first watch to incorporate a silicium escapement, a diamond escapement in 2005 and the Dual Ulysse escapement the same year. Remarkable and monumental achievements, the evolutions of the Freak, with every release, amaze; and to this day, it remains an unrivaled timekeeping phenomenon.
For the first time, a version of the Freak collection showcases a re-centered balance wheel, a date function, and the breakthrough UlyChoc safety system – a new generation of shock absorbers designed, developed and produced entirely in-house.
The user-friendly rotating bezel is freed via a safety clip at 6 o’clock. This is used to set the hours and minutes when rotated clockwise, and the date when rotated counter-clockwise. The other bezel winds the mainspring barrel, which is designed for a power reserve of more than seven days.
Limited to 99 pieces, FreakLab is exclusively available at Ulysse Nardin boutiques.
