Ulysse Nardin’s FreakWing is packed with innovations and cutting-edge technology just like the famous high-tech AC45 catamaran of Artemis Racing team.
To celebrate its partnership with the Artemis Racing team for the 35th America's Cup, Ulysse Nardin has adorned its new FreakWing with the most emblematic features of this high-tech catamaran: the upper bridge for the minutes is inspired by the internal structure of the rigid sail, while the texture of the rotating hours disc evokes the mesh net of the multihull. The bezel and case back are forged from carbon fiber, an element that is omnipresent in high-level sailing. And so, flying the colors of the Swedish challenger, the FreakWing is a hymn to excellence, to innovation, to technology and to precision - values which are shared by both brands.
Without a dial or hands, it is made in such a manner as to pivot its movement on itself. Linked to the center of this unusual vessel, the lower bridge indicates the time, while the upper bridge–which carries the gear train, the paired balance spring and the escapement in silicium, exclusive to the Dual Ulysse escapement– displays the minutes.
This is a true world-first, and is the subject of a patent application. This solution avoids any slack or friction, allowing for perfect re-centering of the balance wheel in the event of an impact.
Sturdier than ever, with a black DLC titanium case and a carbon-style strap with yellow stitching, the FreakWing is also phenomenal to use. In the absence of a crown, it is the upper and lower bezels, integrated into the movement, which perform the various functions: the first, secured by a safety clip between the lugs at 6 o'clock, can be used to set the hours and minutes when rotated clockwise, and to set the date when rotated anti-clockwise; the second, on the case back, is to wind the mainspring barrel – designed for a power reserve of eight days.
