In 2001, fake Ulysse Nardin launched the Freak fantasy series, creating a precedent in the watchmaking world. At that time, this watch not only broke the traditional design of the watchmaking industry, but also used silicon material technology forward-looking. From 2021 to 2021, after twenty years, the Freak series has become the iconic product of Ulysse Nardin.
In the past two decades, the Freak Fantasy series of Ulysse Nardin watch has undergone several changes. In 2019, the FreakX watch was born, and the Freak Fantasy series penetrated consumers with a closer attitude. The FreakX watch can be said to be a “simplified version” of a whimsical watch. The design is more concise, and the size of the watch has also been reduced to 43 mm. From all aspects, the FreakX watch is more suitable for daily wear. (Watch model: 2303-270/BLACK)
The most eye-catching feature of the Ulysse Nardin FreakX watch is naturally the design on the front of the watch. The FreakX watch actually uses a “dialless” and “no pointer” design. We see that the movement bridge on the front of the watch is used to act as a pointer, and part of the time train is hidden in the movement splint. Below.
The Carussell module rotates once an hour to drive the central bridge to indicate the minutes; at the same time, the lower panel is driven to rotate once in twelve hours and drives the lower bridge to rotate to indicate the hours.
On the central bridge, we can also see a huge silicon balance wheel, magnificent, presented in hollow, with fine adjustment of non-stick weights, and the visual effect is very cool.
The end of the movement bridge and the time scale are covered with a luminous coating, which makes it easy for the wearer to read the time in a dark environment.
The Freak Fantasy series did not use a conventional crown at the beginning, but adjusted the time by rotating the bezel and rotating the back of the watch to wind it. The FreakX watch returns to the crown design, which has a lot to do with the structure of the movement. We can also see that the sapphire glass table mirror presents an arched shape, which can better show the peculiar design of the front of the watch.
This watch is made of titanium material, which is light and not easy to sensitize, and can reduce the burden on the wrist when worn. The watch is paired with a black alligator leather strap and folding clasp, adding elegance to the watch.
The UN-230 movement integrates the dual advantages of the brand’s self-made UN-118 movement and the UN-250 movement of the Whimsical Transcend watch. It adopts an automatic winding method and has a power reserve of 72 hours. Turning to the back of the watch, we can see the hollow rotor with the Ulysse Nardin LOGO logo and some movement details.
The Freak Fantasy series is the boldest series of Ulysse Nardin watches so far, with distinctive design features and superior technology. This is not only a timepiece to show the time, but also carries the bold and innovative spirit of the brand. FreakX watches are very suitable for young people who have the courage to show their individuality and taste unique fashion. If you have friends who are interested, you can pay more attention to it.
