ULYSSE NARDIN INTRODUCES THE FREAK [S NOMAD]

watches


At Watches and Wonders Geneva this year, the independent and integrated Manufacture Ulysse Nardin introduces the next chapter in the story of the Freak, the unconventional and yet traditional Freak S Nomad, reflecting the brand’s independent spirit and its quest to explore new territories by pushing boundaries.

The new 99-piece limited edition watch is defined by its unique movement, which at first glance carries echoes of a fantastical spaceship.

That look comes from the architecture of the Freak S’s Calibre UN-251 Manufacture movement, a flying carousel that rotates around its own axis. It features two oscillators with silicon balance wheels inclined at 20 degrees (that look like launch pads) and escapements treated with high-tech DIAMonSIL for added precision and durability. These are linked by a vertical differential system mounted on ball bearings. Winding is taken care of by Ulysse Nardin’s innovative Grinder® winding system, an automatic system that’s twice as efficient as a traditional automatic system.

CHOPARD ALPINE EAGLE

Alpine Eagle 41 XP Frozen Summit
Limited edition of 8 in ethical 18-carat white gold entirely set with diamonds
Peak jewellery sophistication and mechanical refinement

 With Alpine Eagle, Chopard has created a contemporary sporty-chic collection featuring pure design and sophisticated mechanics. Today, with the Alpine Eagle 41 XP Frozen Summit, the collection welcomes a new model combining the Maison’s watchmaking and jewellery expertise, and whose exceptional refinement has been saluted by the Poinçon de Genève. The 41 mm-diameter case, as well as the entire dial, bezel, crown and integrated bracelet in ethical 18-carat white gold, are set with meticulously cut diamonds. This represented a significant challenge, taking the collection to a new jewellery peak and evoking the celestial beauty of stars reflected on glaciers. Making no compromises in terms of technical expertise, this true collector’s timepiece benefits from the watchmaking savoir-faire of Chopard Manufacture embodied in the ultra-thin L.U.C 96.41-L movement, with automatic winding via a micro-rotor ensuring a 65-hour power reserve.

H. MOSER & CIE.: THE PIONEER CENTRE SECONDS CONCEPT CITRUS GREEN

watches


A killer lime green dial, a totally lit rubber strap: the Pioneer Centre Seconds Concept Citrus Green model is more than just a watch. Designed for those who don’t want to be down with the crowd, it knocks conformity down. Why be another sheep when you can mix it up? And it’s also another beautiful diss from H. Moser & Cie., once again demonstrating that it can’t be put in a box. Taking boundaries and smashing them to bits, time and time again. Radiant and joyful, it’s a total vibe: a watch to give you thrills each time you check the time. A legit feel-good watch, it’s the perfect companion for hitting the waves or diving to the depths in style, all the way to 120 metres.
