Ulysse Nardin (Athens watch, hereinafter referred to as UN) produces only 30,000 watches per year, which is indeed not surprising in size, but it is such a Swedish company whose novel design is frequently Outside surprises. The founder Ludwig Oechslin (Ludwig-Oklin) inspired by his wild imagination, Freak series of watches is an immortal legend of UN.
AkFreak is a tourbillon watch, which was released in 2001. It abandoned the traditional ‘single-axis escapement’ and first adopted the ‘two-way escapement’. The case has also become an integral part of the watch’s operation, because the mainspring of the watch covers the entire case, and the winding mechanism can be driven by the rotation of the case. Although the mechanical device is complicated, it is hidden under the simple shape design. In the next few years, UN will use Freak watches as a platform to showcase its innovative craftsmanship, and will launch Freak DIAMonSIL and Freak Diamond HEART. Today, the new Freak Diavolo, based on Freak, is a testament to UN’s creativity. Freak Diavolo’s hairspring is made of silicon, and the newly developed excellent material LIGA (deep electroforming molding technology) nickel is used in the core part. Unlike the oscillators used in other Freak watches, Freak Diavolo is equipped with a flying tourbillon device with a seconds display. The flying tourbillon can be centered every 60 minutes with the support of two ball bearing devices. Rotate around.
Driven by UN’s continuous creativity, I believe there will be more and more fantastic Freak watches coming out one after another, let us wait and see.
