A Song of Ice and Fire: Ulysse Nardin Freak X Special Editions
Ulysse Nardin introduced its new Freak X in 2019 as a more classic and affordable take on the avant-garde original 2001 Freak collection. This year, the company, known for both its deep historical connection to marine chronometers and avant-garde technical innovations, created two new Freak X variations, diametrically opposed in design. One is titanium in snowy shades, the other is titanium with black DLC and red carbon inserts, clearly inspired by lava.
The 43mm case of the Freak X Magma fuses ultra-lightweight carbon fibers with epoxy to create a unique stone pattern with hot magma flowing around it, and a coating that is highly resistant to damage. The bezel combines polished surfaces and sandblasted surfaces, while the black leather strap with red accents reflects the same color accents on the dial. An unusual and attractive look is combined with functionality - the markers and hands of the watch are coated with Super-LumiNova, ensuring excellent visibility even in the dark.
The Freak X Ice is inspired by prehistoric glaciers, according to Ulysse Nardin. Its design combines alabaster shades of matte titanium case and blue dial elements. The composition is rounded off by a perforated leather strap with a white rubber coating. In both models, the sapphire crystal caseback reveals caliber UN-230.
Like the previous watches of the Freak collection, the new items use an original time indication system, formally without hands. It differs from the old versions by the presence of a crown - earlier the Freak models were known for the fact that their bezel was used for setting and adjusting the time. Caliber UN-230 is a "mixture" of the two previous calibers in the collection - UN-118 and UN-250 - it is distinguished by an automatic winding system, an especially wide and light silicone balance and a 72-hour power reserve.
