Subverting watchmaking norms, this Freak X is dazzling

The Ulysse Nardin Fantasy series is already synonymous with subversion and innovation in the field of watches, and the Freak X watch launched in 2019 is positioned to be young and lower the threshold to allow watch friends to start better. Everyone is welcome. When I introduced the silicon dial style before, I happened to chat with you that there are currently two special dial designs in this series, one is silicon inlay, and the other is black and white camouflage. This black and white camouflage plate, today I will introduce it to you in detail.

Before introducing the watch, let’s talk about how the black and white camouflage of this Freak X in Athens came from? Ulysse Nardin has a deep historical relationship with the sailing world and the navies of many countries. This watch is familiar to all of you. The dazzling camouflage is also known as zebra painting. It was the first ship camouflage adopted by British warships during World War I. Camouflage, with dazzling camouflage patterns to cover up ships, but its purpose is not to “stealth” in the sea, like jungle camouflage, you can’t find it in the woods, making the battleship invisible at sea, it can’t be achieved, Therefore, the zebra camouflage is to make the enemy unable to distinguish, the outline of the hull, the distance, speed and heading of the ship, and the direction of the bow and stern from a long distance. However, although it does reduce the sinking rate of the battleship, this eye-catching design also increases the probability of the battleship being attacked, so we can also understand that the significance of Athens using this coating is to make the watch more eye-catching.

The 43mm case is made of titanium. Athens uses a DLC black coating for it and is decorated with a brushed process. This side of the case has a classic nameplate design, engraved with a separate digital code, and you can see the watch. Limited edition of 30 pieces.

The difference between the Freak X and the Freak whimsy that can be distinguished at a glance is the added crown at 3 o’clock. The water resistance of the entire watch is 50 meters.

The black and white zebra pattern on the dial of the watch, reinterpreted by the design department with geometric beauty, is indeed very modern art. Ulysse Nardin copy also uses three different polishing and decoration techniques to make it, including lacquer decoration, Electroplating and laser engraving for the ultimate dazzling effect.

Freak X’s Carrousel bar movement rotates 1 revolution per hour, which is used as a minute hand indication. The short lower bridge plate is an hour indication, and the entire disk surface will also rotate with time. On the Carrousel mechanism, we can also clearly see the large, ultra-light silicon balance wheel with nickel counterweight and stabilizing micro silicon flakes.

Freak X’s luminous effect is often a link that everyone will ignore. In fact, it does a good job. As you can see from the luminous effect in the picture, it belongs to the sci-fi style of Freak X.

In terms of movement, the watch is equipped with the UN-230 automatic movement produced in Athens, which is based on the UN-118 automatic movement with the addition of the Carrousel module. We will often say that the movement is assembled with the UN-118 movement. And the UN-250 movement of the Freak Vision and Transcend watch, the advantages of these two movements actually refer to the fact that the UN-230 uses diamond silicon crystal technology on the one hand, and a layer of diamond film is plated on the silicon parts, which is better than no plating. The silicon is more resistant to wear, and has better hardness and smoothness. At the same time, it overcomes the problem that silicon is easy to break during processing, and inherits the large silicon ultra-light balance wheel from UN-250. The movement data is 21,600 times per hour, and the full chain dynamic storage can provide 72 hours.

The original luxury copy watches offers a choice of black and white straps, a black hollow rubber-coated leather strap, and a white hollow calfskin strap. We photographed this, but changed it to a black alligator leather strap, which is also very good. Fits the watch.

This Freak X dazzling camouflage watch, I think it is in terms of visual effects, even if you don’t have to cooperate with popular modern artists like other brands, Athens can play with its own understanding of aesthetic design. This kind of expressive modern art effect, so this piece of whimsy freak X has a unique charm and is the best carrier to show the wearer’s unique personality. The metallic properties are laid out here.
