ULYSSE NARDIN UNVEILS THE BUCHERER BLUE: THE FREAK, IN A NEW LIGHT
Ulysse Nardin and Bucherer BLUE have brought to light a new masterpiece: the FREAK X Bucherer BLUE. Truly unique and disruptive, this joint creation perfectly illuminates the power of innovation when like-minded partners unite for an exceptional collaboration.
The shining example of boundary-pushing watch technology is built around the FREAK’s iconic design codes. Unique features include its experimental movement that turns once on itself every hour and a baguette-shaped carousel concept that has no dial, instead using a central bridge as the minute hand while one of the wheels indicates hours. Flashes of vivid blue highlight details including the indexes, gear train at six o’clock and Ulysse Nardin logo on the caseback of an entirely transformed body.
The Ulysse Nardin FREAK X Bucherer BLUE is constructed from Carbonium®, a next-generation carbon composite that is robust, resilient and a completely unexpected choice for watchmaking. Commonly found in the fuselage and wings of modern aircraft, this super-light and sustainable material, developed to make essential aeronautical components, adds a disruptive edge to the FREAK’s design. When created at high pressure and temperature, this high-performance ion unveils the organic pattern of the carbon fibre, making each marbled case one of a kind.
Available exclusively at Bucherer, this bold and modern masterpiece is limited to 88 pieces to reflect 1888: the year Bucherer was founded.
