SIHH 2019: Ulysse Nardin - Freak X

Ulysse Nardin is launching the Freak X, the latest interpretation of the Freak, one of the most iconic watches created by the brand founded in 1846 in Le Locle.


The new model differs from all previous Freak timepieces for two main characteristics: it is smaller - the diameter is 43 mm instead of 45 mm - and it features a traditional crown for time correction, so breaking one of the distinctive feature of the crown-less Freak Vision or Freak Out models, which correct time by the bezel.

The “baguette” movement is not changing, though. It is still a carousel, turning on itself once every hour to indicate the time.



With no actual dial and hands, the central bridge acts as a minute hand and one of the wheels indicates the hours. Both are treated with Super-LumiNova, just like the indices, for optimal visibility even in with poor light. With its nickel flyweights and stabilizing micro-blades, the real eye-catcher of the ensemble is the super-light and extra-wide balance wheel in silicium.



The new UN-230 movement is a fusion of the manufacture calibers UN-118 and Freak Vision UN-250. Beating at a frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vph), it guarantees 72 hours of power reserve.

The new Freak X is available in titanium (ref. 2303-270/03), black DLC (ref. 2303-270.1/BLACK), Carbonium (ref. 2303-270/CARB) or rose gold (ref. 2305-270/02).



Representing the new entry point into the Freak collection (previously starting at Euro 48,000 / US$ 48,000 with the Freak Out), the Ulysse Nardin Freak X has the following prices: Euro 21,000 / US$ 21,000 for the Freak X Ti Blue, Euro 21,000 / US$ 21,000 for the Freak X Black, Euro 24,000 / US$ 24,000 for the Freak X Carbonium and Euro 30,000 / US$ 30,000 for the Freak X Rose Gold. ulysse-nardin.com

  1. Interesting interpretation of the Freak but it loses some magic compared to the originals.
