Ulysse Nardin was just 23 when he founded his eponymous watchmaking company in 1846. Since then, the Swiss brand has built a reputation for innovation and excellence. The Freak concept watch by Ulysse Nardin caused a great stir when it was launched in 2001. Now the new Freak Cruiser model has been unveiled. Using all the cutting-edge technologies at its disposal, Ulysse Nardin has accomplished a magnificent feat of watchmaking with the patented dual Ulysse escapement. By doing away with the traditional anchor and anchor wheel, and replacing them with two silicon impulse wheels, Ulysse Nardin has created a structure that requires no lubrication, and there is minimal friction. Shown here in 18-carat rose gold with a brown alligator strap, this is more than just a timepiece; it’s a masterclass in engineering right there on your wrist.
