Ulysse Nardin Freak X – The New Entry Price Point for The Freak Collection (Hands-On)

The Freak watch has been a darling hero in the Ulysse Nardin line-up since the time first experience with the world in 2001. In those days, the flying carrousel watch was an oddity and many watch darlings were promptly stricken by its complex watchmaking and appealing plan. It was additionally the watch that acquainted silicium innovation with the world – the Freak was, in 2001, the main watch highlighting silicium components to at any point be commercialized. From that point forward, Ulysse Nardin keeps on advancing the Freak. Indeed, even a year ago at SIHH, the brand offered the most up to date advancement, the Freak Vision , a programmed watch that fused a couple of top specialized developments from the earlier year’s Innovision 2 Concept watch . Presently, Ulysse Nardin takes the cherished sans hands watch higher than ever with the Freak X – and to another value class as well, as this Freak is much more moderate than the past Freak Out .

The formation of the new watch is the consequence of R&D that necessary an all-new Manufacture flying carrousel loaf development to be constructed. In the most up to date watch, the “X” is intended to summon pictures of the X-factor and “Xploration” – a revived, somewhat cooler ideology by which Ulysse Nardin presently lives. The new roll molded flying carrousel self-winding development, Caliber UN-230, pivots around its own axis on the dial side. Dedicated to the debut Freak idea, there is no dial, and the development is openworked so the wearer gets a full perspective on the mechanics here.

The new development of the Freak X is a synergistic improvement that takes the most awesome aspect both the UN-118 type and the Freak Vision UN-250 type . It contrasts from past Freak watches in a large group of ways. In any case, there is no Ulysse Nardin anchor steady escapement, no processor, no silicium gear train (however it has a silicium balance haggle) are less wheels in the bolder, more straightforward development. Moreover, this Freak X watch has a crown looking into the issue side for setting the time – something none of the other Freak Out , FreakLab or Freak Vision watches had.

Designed to make time telling somewhat simpler, the carrousel development goes after itself consistently. Still without hands, the time is shown through a focal extension for the minutes and a wheel for the hours. The super light equilibrium wheel, made in silicium, is extra wide and set with nickel flyweights to settle the miniature blades.

The Freak X watch is offered with a “more modest” 43mm measurement (as compared to 45mm) with an all-new case. Still round, it flaunts liberal bends and smoothly tightened aerodynamically propelled hauls. The watch is being offered in titanium, rose gold, dark DLC, or in another substance in the watchmaking scene – eco-accommodating Carbonium. Acquired from the aerodynamic world, where it is utilized for plane fuselage and wings, Carbonium is an extremely lightweight and elite material. As indicated by Ulysse Nardin, the creation of the material (which includes pressing factor and temperature medicines) has 40% less natural effect than different composites. At the point when wrapped up handling, the material with carbon filaments in it, makes its own natural example. The Freak X is water-impervious to 50 metres.
