The lineup of Freak series of UlysseNardin Athens watches has been growing and the style is even wilder. At this moment, four new FreakOut watches are in place on the launch pad and will soon launch into the great unknown world. Everyone, please bring your Freak together!
Please fasten your seat belt: Freak is not just a watch, it is a complete watch series! Following the FreakVision and FreakVision CoralBay reef watches launched at the 2018 Geneva International High-level Watch and Clock Fair (SIHH), four new FreakOut watches equipped with homemade manual winding movement UN-205 are now available. Join this unique collection in fine watchmaking. All new FreakOut products subvert the traditional norms: there is no crown, dial and hands, and it is equipped with a ‘flying carrousel’ tourbillon (the bar movement rotates around its axis) and an ultra-light silicon balance. The magic charm of flying Caruso’s spins fascinates people.
The Freak structure abandoned the traditional anchor escapement fork and escape wheel, and switched to two silicon escape wheels in the center. Each escapement wheel is equipped with 18 teeth, which rotate in clockwise and counterclockwise directions, respectively, and engage with each other to transmit energy to the balance wheel. No lubrication is required, ensuring that energy is always released in the direction of the balance wheel, reducing friction. The silicon hairspring vibrates 28,800 times (4 Hz) per hour with very little interference. Because the vibration amplitude is small, the influence of interference is also minimized.
A small locking device located between the lugs above the strap can be used to lock or release the rotating bezel. When rotating in any direction, it can easily and accurately adjust the hours and minutes. The watch’s barrel is equipped with a 7-day power reserve and can be wound using a bezel mounted on the case back bearing.
Unlike earlier gold FreakCruiser models, the new FreakOut watch is made of titanium, presenting the world of Freak to a wider audience. Another novelty of this watch is its new styled case and bezel (inspired by the UlysseNardinInnoVision2 concept watch), which contrast with the inner buckle and stitching on the canvas strap. The new FreakOut watch creates a different style, casual and masculine at the same time, creating a cool and fashionable dynamic atmosphere.
