The Ulysse Nardin Freak Blue Cruiser Timepiece

By Brody Patterson


Updated on

Unveiled during this year’s Baselworld, the Ulysse Nardin Freak Blue Cruiser is part of a series of Freak Cruiser models introduced in 2013 with black dials and bezels, in white or rose gold.

The first Freak was introduced back in 2001 and, as its name suggests, was quite revolutionary at the time, the first watch with dual direct escapement and silicon components. Ulysse Nardin continued to work on the concept, improving the design and using more advanced materials for various components, while maintaining the overall concept of no dial or no crown (with winding and time-setting done via the back rotating bezel).

The Blue Cruiser comes in a 45mm white or rose gold case. At its heart it has a manual-wind Ulysse Nardin Cal UN-205 movement with a 7-day power reserve, silicon escapement and silicon hairspring, as well as a flying tourbillion with a seconds indicator.

The price is $95,000 for the white gold model, while the rose gold version costs $87,500.
