Ulysse Nardin, renowned for its groundbreaking timepieces, introduced an exciting addition to its Freak series at Dubai Watch Week. The Freak X OPS, short for “operations,” embodies a rugged and daring aesthetic in a fusion of khaki and black tones, signaling a departure from its traditional style while maintaining cutting-edge technology synonymous with Ulysse Nardin’s independent integrated manufacture.
At the heart of the Freak X OPS lies the impressive Caliber UN-240 Manufacture movement, a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation, independence, and superior quality in watchmaking. This collection of calibers stands as one of the most extensive and diverse in the industry, catering to both conventional and unconventional tastes for both men and women.
Distinctively lacking a conventional dial, the Freak ONE OPS proudly showcases its UN-240 Manufacture movement within its 44mm black DLC titanium case. A striking khaki green hue adorns the watch’s integrated rubber strap and sunray-patterned barrel cover, enhancing its adventurous appeal.
The focal point of the timepiece remains the mesmerizing flying carousel within the movement, ingeniously indicating the minutes while rotating independently on its axis, a feature that captivates the observer’s attention.
Adding to its allure, the bezel of the Freak ONE OPS is crafted from Carbonium®, an innovative material known for its exceptional strength-to-lightness ratio. Derived from carbon fibers utilized in cutting-edge aircraft construction, Carbonium® embodies sustainability by utilizing leftover materials from the aircraft manufacturing process, reducing its environmental footprint by 40% compared to other carbon composites.
Ulysse Nardin’s Freak X OPS stands as a testament to the brand’s relentless pursuit of innovation, combining advanced technology with a captivating design that appeals to the adventurous spirit of watch enthusiasts.
