Ulysse Nardin Freak X 43mm RG
With no dial or hands the Ulysse Nardin Freak X brings keeping time to the next level. Featuring the UN230 movement, this 43mm rose gold watch showcases an unobstructed view of the balance wheel and escapement with its pristine design aesthetics.
Ulysse Nardin first introduced the Freak Collection in 2001. It was considered one of the most revolutionary watch collections of its time being the first to utilize silicon in mechanical watchmaking. Nearly two decades later the Freak X Collection premiered at SIHH in Geneva 2019.
The FREAK X stands out as the entry point into the FREAK collection. Though many of the same aesthetic and functional elements are in place, it pushes out into uncharted territory. The sizing is tighter - 43mm instead of 45mm - but it is easier to read and operate. It has a crown for time correction, which breaks with one of the most iconic aspects of the crown-less FREAK VISION or FREAK OUT models, which correct time by the bezel.
The “baguette” movement is still a carousel, turning once on itself every hour to indicate the time. It is simpler, bolder, and has fewer wheels. It has no dial and no hands - the central bridge acts as a minute hand and one of the wheels indicates the hours. Inside and clearly visible beats one of the FREAK VISION's most outstanding innovations: a super-light balance wheel in silicium, extra-wide, with nickel flyweights and stabilizing micro-blades.
The movement itself, the new UN-230, is a fusion of the manufacture calibers UN-118 and FREAK VISION UN-250. The case, nicely rounded with curved lines, is wholyl new, and seriously transformative. Freak X has no dial and no hands. The central bridge acts as a minute hand, and one of the wheels indicates the hours. The case of each Ulysse Nardin timepiece is individually numbered on the side.
