  • Catalogue Essay

    Truly unique, the Freak collection by Ulysse Nardin was the first timepiece to be fitted with silicium escapement wheels in its movement. Unlike regular wristwatches, this present avant-garde timepiece does not feature any crown and the watch can be adjusted and winded by rotating the diamond-set bezel and case back. The movement itself is prominently displayed on the dial and the minute is indicated by the tourbillon carrousel. The watch also features a unique locking mechanism that prevents the bezel from moving unintentionally. Presented in excellent overall condition, this watch is sure to captivate connoisseurs with its innovative concept.
