Additional Information:
Brand new Ulysse Nardin Freak II, Model # 020-88.
18kt white gold 45.5mm case. Sapphire crystal glass. Blue dial with Roman numeral hour markers. Crocodile leather strap with 18k white gold deploy buckle. Hours and minutes. 18k white gold bezel. Manual wind movement. The watch has no hands: The Freak indicates the time by the rotation of the movement. The arrow decorating the main spring barrel indicates the hour while the upper bridge, fitted with the balance wheel assembly and its revolutionary Dual Ulysse Escapement, revolves once every hour indicating the minutes. During its 60 minute rotation, the upper bridge lays bare the mechanics of time. The center axis pivots in the sapphire crystal of the watch case. In other Tourbillons, the balance wheel assembly moves once every minute in a cage. In the Freak the whole movement, including the balance wheel assembly rotates once an hour inside the watch case. The watch has no crown as the mainspring located beneath the movement spans the entire case diameter – due to the large spring the watch has a 7 day power reserve, The watch is wound by turning the case back counter-clockwise. There is a port hold in the case back which allows seeing the spring coils. With 14 full winds the watch will be fully wound. The watch is set by turning the top bezel. The bezel can be locked & unlocked by a lever at the 6 o’clock position between the lugs. UN Caliber 200, beats at 28,800 vph contains 28 jewels & has an approximate power reserve of 7 days.
The Tourbillon compensates for differences in rate caused by a watch adopting different positions. The principle is to mount the balance and escapement in a rotating cage. The balance & escapement rotate around their common axis going through all positions to average out the errors, Tourbillon cages or platforms usually rotate once per minute but 4 minute and six minute tourbillons are also found. The Tourbillon complication is an extremely difficult accomplishment to achieve & generally demands a high premium.
