Hands-On review of Ulysse Nardin FreakLab Replica Watches

replica watches

If you are a fan of modern design and horological nerdery of watches, I have same tastes as you. In this case, I would say my favorite watch from Ulysse Nardin is “Freak”, which become very popular around the world since it was released. It’s an “anti-classic” luxury replica watches, in other words, has modern design.
Freak is the very first one that Ulysse Nardin started to use silicon material as a part of the mechanical movement. Afterwards, this brand has been increasing their quality, durability, functions of the system. An entire silicon gear train is located at the minute hand. In terms of the newest generation Freak, named “FreakLab”, Ulysse Nardin devoted more energy into this edition since it use the new in-house “UlyChoc” technology.
had some hands-on time with the initial version of the Ulysse Nardin FreakLab in 18k white gold at Baselworld 2015. However, we have been let known that the limited edition of black-colored titanium and carbon fiber of Ulysse Nardin FreakLab Boutique will only be sold at Ulysse Nardin mono-brand stores.
UlyChoc sounds like a child’s chocolate candy, but it isn’t digestible by humans. Rather, the innovative system specially designed for a Freak-style watch is a silicon shock absorber system designed for the pinion which holds the entire hand/running gears/regulation system on the dial.
It is a quite sensitive material since it is weighed more, in comparison with others, concerning that it rests on just one connection point. Replica Ulysse Nardin redesign and strengthened this important connection point in the watch and also gave it the ability to absorb some vibration and shock. It was released after a series of interesting innovations to this system, since it has a removal of the top pin (early versions of the Freak actually had a pin in the sapphire crystal over the dial right down through the watch) as well as a dual escapement system (Dual Ulysse Escapement).
Some images of the UlyChoc system have already been included by us, if successful, such technology could find its way into future in-house-made Ulysse Nardin movements. The reason Ulysse Nardin chose to give this version of the Freak watch family the “FreakLab” name is perhaps to remind everyone that when the Freak was designed with a extreme special design concept, it as well was treated as a laboratory to test new technology. Ulysse Nardin recently went from being an independent company to being purchased by Kering and I truly hope that under the larger company’s ownership the ever-cool Le Locle, Switzerland-based watchmaker remains true to its ambitious efforts, as realized by late owner Rolf Schnyder who sadly passed in 2011.
It is worth of mentioning that there is one of the most crucial parts, which is easily missed as well. In comparison with the Freak, the location of the balance wheel has been changed. Before, it was placed at the end of the hand in order to counter the weight of the hand. However, now, it is placed at the center of it, which is made by a silicon hairspring, the same as “Dual Ulysse Escapements” in silicon.
