Ulysse Nardin sends Freak S into space at Watches & Wonders 2022
The new Freak S debuted in Geneva today. Not only does it take the story of the industry-shattering Freak series into the future, but it also brings it into the universe as a whole.fashion replica watches
When the original Ulysse Nardin Freak model debuted in 2001, it caused a stir in the watch world. Conceived by master watchmaker Carole Forestier-Kasapi, the crownless timepiece was a bold idea that challenged the rules of how watches communicate time to the wearer. Since then, the Freak has become one of the few disruptive yet groundbreaking concept timepieces to have a serious impact on the watch industry.
to the future The essence of Freak's fully loaded carousel minute indicator remains futuristic. But, today, at Watches & Wonders in Geneva, Ulysse Nardin presents a new version that takes more direct lines to outer space. Dubbed the "Freak S," it has a starry aventurine dial with a large-sized carousel, and the brand's first automatic dual oscillator with differential.
"The revolutionary soul of the Freak discount replica watches is often inspired by new technological challenges," Ulysse Nardin CEO Patrick Pruniaux said in a press release. "It's like the heroes of Homer Odyssey visiting In many unknown lands, we at Ulysse Nardin continue to explore all possible avenues provided by science to ensure that the precision and functionality of our timekeeping instruments continue to improve.”

However, the new Freak S manages to improve upon the carousel already loaded with an all-new, groundbreaking tilt-twin-swing system with an adjustable differential, a first for the brand. And, thanks to their skill, the symmetry of the "twin-turbo" machinery inspired the brand's designers to go after the stars. The carousel, which previously had a more linear or vaguely uneven extruded oval frame, is now a bold twin-reactor starship, replete with metallic rose-gold bridges and creepy blue balance wheels, tilted like wings by 20 Spend.wholesale replica watches
Due to their relative position and gravity, the two wheels will never swing at the same speed. But between them, the differential (the rest of the starship's engine) modulates these frequencies to provide constant force. New Field This superb execution creates a more pronounced carousel presentation - it's big. So big, it led to the next design innovation for the Freak S.
On previous Freak models, a large arrow separate from the carousel indicated the hours on the dial. In Freak S, there is no room for this. In its place is a striking white marker, the same white minute scale as on the front of the Starship, rotating on its own bridge, actually below the overhanging rose gold hour markers. There's an arrow on the new indicator, but it's the only visual nod to the previous system.replica Seiko watches
Freak S design: the future meets the past In a way, these changes represent a tide shift in Freak's overall design language. However, they also seem to be the logical next step or evolution of the existing DNA in the series.
Even with the hour feature of the older Freak, all you really see is that single dominant carousel. The hour hand is there, but suppressed. In Freak S, the interstellar carousel completely takes center stage, and rightfully so. However, in a clear reference to the 2001 Freak, the Freak S's 45mm case is inspired by the original and stacks black ceramic, black DLC titanium and rose gold to the rose gold bezel.
Of course, when you're talking about science fiction, you have to give a little nod to the genre's steampunk elements. Complementing the technicality of the timepiece, the Freak S's black alligator strap features some traditional white, gold stitching and hash accents, injecting just the right amount of Jules Verne into the scene.MB&F LMX LEGACY MACHINE X STEEL & BRASS 08.SL.B
