The Yachtsman's Dream Watch — the Ulysse Nardin Freak S is a Rocket on the Wrist

Posted April 15, 2022 in Watches & Jewelry by Janine St.Denis

Founded in 1846 in Le Locle, Switzerland, Ulysse Nardin is proud of its historical ties to the world’s oceans, having manufactured some of the most precise marine chronometers. In doing so, Ulysse Nardin has helped captains and their crews navigate their way across great bodies of water. Accurate timekeeping is an essential tool for the successful journey of every maritime explorer. Breaking from tradition, the brand now sets its sights not across the sea but toward the stars on a Vertical Odyssey, plotting a course that will take the brand to even greater heights. This new adventure takes us to the center of the solar system: our Sun. Ulysse Nardin proposes a new high-tech watchmaking masterpiece driven by a powerful solar wind for the voyage. In 2001, Ulysse Nardin shocked the watch industry with the debut of its revolutionary Freak watch. Today, the brand looks to the brightest stars of the cosmos for inspiration for this new interpretation of the infamous Freak. At first glance, the brand’s pioneering new watch resembles a space vessel with twin reactors. This creation combining all the superlatives came into being thanks to the expertise of an integrated Manufacture; it represents the expression of contemporary luxury masterfully manifested in an avant-garde watchmaking design.

Once again, the Manufacture pushes back the limits of traditional watchmaking.

Ulysse Nardin’s very first double oscillator with a differential is born. Made possible by the Freak S “Grinder” automatic winding system – twice as efficient as a traditional winding system since its energy transmission is twice as efficient as existing systems. The future of timekeeping is here with the new Ulysse Nardin Freak S and we invite you to join us as we explore the universe with our eyes focused on the stars.
