Ulysse Nardin has announced that it will launch Freaklab, a new addition to its Freak collection that originally launched back in 2001.
The 45 mm timepiece will feature a case that is produced using 18-carat white gold. It will house a caliber UN-210 movement that runs at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). It has both hours and minutes functions.
To create the piece, Ulysse Nardin has completely redesigned the entire floating upper bridge. The first gear train, has been made smaller, in order to reposition the balance-wheel and balance-spring at the center of the movement. This, also means that the watch is lighter and easier to read.
Its design features no dial or hands and has been constructed so that the movement turns about its own axis. An anchor represents the hours, whilst a bridge in the shape of a sail depicts the minutes. Additionally, a date display can be found at the 4 o’clock position.
A safety clip between the horns at 6 o’clock frees the rotating bezel sculpted in the shape of waves. This, allows the wearer to set the hours and minutes when rotated clockwise, and the date when rotated anticlockwise.
The Ulysse Nardin Freaklab will be released in a limited quantity of only 99 pieces and boasts a minimum power reserve of more than 7 days.
