By  |  0 Comments

Following the release of the Virtual Odyssey in 2021, Ulysse Nardin has returned with Mission 2, right on time to debut at Watches and Wonders 2022 in Geneva. Mission 1 of the Vertical Odyssey saw UN’s timepieces explore the darkest depths of the ocean with dynamic divers, UFO’s crashing through the Earth’s hemisphere, and forays into space. Now Mission 2 takes a journey deep into the unknown with three new galactic inspired timepieces. 

Freak X Aventurine

Ulysse Nardin Freak X Aventurine - Lifestyle

The limited edition Ulysse Nardin Freak X Aventurine, the first release from this new collection, is a powerful watch that emphasizes sleek design. The traditional dial and hands are replaced instead by the manufacture flying carrousel movement that rotates around its own axis.

The new UN-230 calibre is a fusion of two earlier movements, bringing the best of both worlds together. Like the foundation Freak watch of 2001 the Freak X Aventurine edition implements silicium technology with the balance wheel, escapement wheel, balance spring and anchor being crafted from this lightweight element.

Behind the movement, aventurine honors UN’s nautical roots as it shimmers like the twinkling ocean on a midnight sky inside the striking blue PVD titanium and rose gold 43mm case. Shop the Freak X Aventurine here.

Blast Moonstruck 45mm

Ulysse Nardin Blast Moonstruck 45mm - Side

Delving deeper into this celestial journey, the Ulysse Nardin Blast Moonstruck 45mm reproduces the moon’s rotation as it’s observed from Earth and a tidal chart. The geocentric display of the Blast Moonstruck is designed to be easily understood, while translating the sophisticated relationship of the sun and moon’s poetic motions to the wrist, for astronomy lovers of any level.

With a closer inspection the details come alive on this intricate timepiece. The domed crystal, with the land masses micro-engraved on the inside, is set in the protective sapphire crystal box encircled by an 18 ct rose gold ring engraved with the 31 days of the month.

Ulysse Nardin chose to provide a representation of the moon phases in a round aperture located at the apogee of an ellipse portraying its orbit, which is depicted as being in the same ecliptic plane as Earth for practical reasons. Shop the Blast Moonstruck 45 mm here.

Freak S 45mm

Finally the Ulysse Nardin Freak S 45mm, resembling a rocket on the wrist, is a new high-tech watchmaking limited edition masterpiece of only 75 pieces worldwide. The watch brand looked to the brightest stars of the cosmos for inspiration for this new interpretation of the Freak. At first glance, the UN’s pioneering new watch resembles a space vessel with twin reactors.

With the Freak S, Ulysse Nardin has designed the very first automatic double oscillator with a differential with automatic winding, thanks to the groundbreaking “Grinder” system. Utilizing the smallest of wrist movements, the Grinder is twice as efficient as a classical automatic winding system since its energy transmission is twice as efficient as that of existing systems.

Further, the silicium components of the escapement of the Freak S have been coated with a layer of artificial diamond which optimizes its performance and its resistance. This creation represents the expression of contemporary luxury masterfully manifested in an avantgarde watchmaking design.
