Reviews on Ulysse Nardin Freak Watches

Over the years, Ulysse Nardin has been known for producing high-precision marine watches. Over time, in addition to their iconic products, they also released the Freak collection, an exotic timepiece with many bold innovations. In today’s review, we’ll take a closer look at one of the Freak’s most popular timepieces.

Born at the beginning of the 21st century, the Freak collection embodies the unique and creative essence that Ulysse Nardin pours into each design. Every watch is very different, and the escapement of its movement forms the minute hand. The operating mechanism is optimized, especially the mechanical parts inside the silicon escapement. 2005 marked the launch of the diamond escapement with the Dual Ulysse system.

Since then, Freak has been seen as a real new wind, bringing a lot of interesting things not only to watch lovers around the world, but also to Ulysse Nardin itself, as a brand about creativity and innovative new concepts.

Considered to be one of the designs that marked the beginning of the Ulysse Nardin Freak, the watch featured a special tourbillon movement on the dial, as well as a special operating system.

  1. Overall Design

Overall, the fake Ulysse Nardin Freak has a very distinctive look, but retains some of the details of a classic watch. The entire dial case is made of 18K rose gold, and the special engraved bezel connects the two micro-curved lugs, creating a soft feeling that hugs the wrist of the watch.

The bezel on the front is designed with the function of adjusting the time, so it has been carefully carved to form a pattern commonly used in ancient Greek architecture. Later, the bezel was further improved to reduce the lines, but still retain the style.

The back of the watch is a back cover made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, which supports the water resistance of the watch. However, we can only see part of the watch’s mainspring.

A special feature of the watch is that the entire caseback on the back winds the movement by turning the entire case clockwise. Combined with 18K rose gold is still the familiar crocodile leather material of the strap. With a new innovative lock, this special time machine is optimally protected and retains its inherent elegance. online fake watches

  1. Dial design

The dial is divided into two separate parts, the upper part contains details such as hands, tourbillon, hour markers and brand logo; the entire lower part is the operating machine that controls the operation of the watch. The two independent parts are separated by a layer of transparent glass, with silver Arabic numerals on the border around the glass, which are very eye-catching and clear at a glance.

In the center of the dial, a special tourbillon movement serves as the watch’s minute hand. In fact, the tourbillon is the escapement of the movement, with beautifully arranged metal gear shafts. The tourbillon set is attached to the dial by means of gold screws, which form the axis of rotation for this special hand, and secure it and the sapphire crystal to the face of the watch.

In addition to the minute hand, the hour hand of Ulysse Nardin Freak is also quite fancy, with a triangular piece of metal.

Another equally interesting detail is the “fake Ulysse Nardin” brand logo on the dial. The symbol will move around the dial, completing a full circle at the end of the hour.

  1. Operate the machine

The movement is considered the heart of every watch. And Ulysse Nardin has a strong and passionate heart, the Calibre UN-200. This is a very special movement with an automatic winding mechanism and a full bezel setup. The minute hand of the watch will be connected to the bezel by a gear, which facilitates easy winding and time adjustment.

In addition, the Calibre UN-200 is equipped with an innovative escapement made of silicon material, which helps the watch run with exceptional precision and minimizes restrictions and dangers during operation.

Made exclusively in-house, the movement UN-200 has 47 jewels, a frequency of 28,800 vph and a power reserve of up to 7 days. The running movement also supports optimum shock resistance, helping the watch measure time accurately with negligible error.

Today, Ulysse Nardin Freak remains a well-known name in the field of high-end Ulysse Nardin timepieces. With numerous new innovations, gorgeous looks and outstanding performance, this is considered a rare “mechanical masterpiece” of all time, not just a Discount watches or an elegant accessory.

New: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the birth of the fake Royal Oak, the Swiss haute horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet is pleased to present the latest generation of the 39mm Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin watch (ref. 16202), which is equipped with the Manufacture’s new self-winding ultra-thin Movement, Calibre 7121. The collection includes four models in stainless steel, platinum, and 18-karat rose and yellow gold, materials that have played a major role in transforming the Royal Oak into an iconic collection. These four timepieces also feature a Royal Oak “50 Years” oscillating weight that matches the tone of the case. The new “Jumbo” watch pays homage to 50 years of Royal Oak’s design innovation with its refined contrasts, materials, colours and dial animations.

The new Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin model (ref. 16202) features the new self-winding movement Calibre 7121 and a range of dial designs, while paying homage to the aesthetics of the original watch.

Caliber 7121
contemporary history

For the first time since 1972, the ultra-thin Royal Oak “Jumbo” features the new self-winding hours, minutes and date movement, Calibre 7121, which marks the debut of the new “Jumbo” reference 16202. This mechanism replaces the Calibre 2121, first introduced on the Royal Oak in 1972, the thinnest automatic movement with a central rotor and date display (3.05mm), and it will be retired at the end of 2021. The new movement is 3.2mm thick and has been specially designed and produced by Audemars Piguet engineers and watchmakers to fit the ultra-thin 8.1mm “Jumbo” case without altering its aesthetics and thickness. In addition, the drive lever is now equipped with a quick date corrector.

The birth of the new Calibre 7121 took five years of development, and thanks to a completely new structure, it has more power than its predecessor. Its larger barrel gives it more power, making it more precise over longer periods of time. It also features a modern central oscillating weight mounted on ball bearings, which utilizes two reversers developed in-house to ensure bidirectional winding. Its balance wheel is fitted with inertia blocks that have been inserted directly into the balance wheel to avoid unnecessary friction. Additionally, the Calibre 7121 features a patented, ultra-thin, low-energy date setting mechanism.

In keeping with the tradition of fine watchmaking, the Calibre 7121 features refined Haute Horlogerie decorations such as “Côtes de Genève”, “tire signatures” and circular graining, which can be admired through the watch’s sapphire caseback.

The new Royal Oak “Jumbo” ultra-thin watch features a dedicated anniversary skeleton oscillating weight in 22-karat gold, engraved with the “50 Years” logo and engraved with Audemars Piguet’s signature. To do this, the oscillating weight is matched to the colour of each case – a practice usually reserved for complicated timepieces. Similar to the case, the oscillating weight is alternately satin-finished and polished-chamfered.

The “50 Years” oscillating weight will be installed on the Royal Oak Anniversary models throughout 2022.

A tribute to the original watch
The stainless steel “Jumbo” version retains the aesthetics of the original Royal Oak from 1972. The stainless steel case and bracelet are hand-brushed and polished and chamfered to complement the watch’s signature Petite Tapisserie dial and Bleu Nuit Nuage 50 (“Night Blue, Cloud 50”) hue. fake watch uk

The dial’s Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 colour was originally developed by Geneva-based dial maker Stern Frères. The blue hue is obtained by dipping each dial into an electroplating bath. While the recipe of the mix is ​​important, both duration and temperature are critical. If the craftsman removes the dial too early, it will turn purple, and if it is removed too late, it will turn black. Then apply a thin layer of varnish and a few drops of black (n°50) to the dial to protect it. The term “nuage” refers to the clouding effect of black droplets entering a protective liquid varnish. Today, the Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 shade is achieved in-house by PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) to ensure a more even color across the range.

Similar to the 1972 Royal Oak, this new “Jumbo” model retains the original baignoire or “bathtub”-shaped indexes and hands, allowing a luminescent material to be injected for optimum legibility. The dial also retains the polished gold-plated AP monogram at 6 o’clock and the words “AUDEMARS PIGUET AUTOMATIC” printed at 12 o’clock. The “SWISS MADE” indicator that replaced “SWISS” around the mid-1980s is still at 6 o’clock, with SWISS and MADE on both sides of the hour markers to balance the dial.

Unlike the original, however, the sapphire caseback allows you to see the new ultra-thin movement and dedicated anniversary oscillating weight, here in rhodium-coloured 22-karat rose gold to match the colour of the watch’s steel case and bracelet. echo.

pink gold and gold
The new “Jumbo” collection includes both rose and yellow gold models, both featuring the trademark Petite Tapisserie dial in a new smoky tone. The 18-karat rose gold model contrasts with a smoky grey tone, while the 18-karat yellow gold model features a smoky gold tone. The colour of the two dials is obtained by means of an electroplating bath. The smoky effect is achieved by the careful application of coloured varnishes around the perimeter of the rotating dial, further enhancing the shimmering ripple effect of the Tapisserie.

The Petite Tapisserie pattern is achieved through a complex manufacturing process based on a rare technique that is no longer taught in watch schools. It consists of hundreds of small truncated pyramids with square bases, engraved by an old guilloche copier on the thin metal plate of the dial, reproducing the pattern of the matrix. Tens of thousands of diamond shapes, whose four inner faces reflect light, are simultaneously cut into thin grooves that separate the squares in a seamless weave, creating the appearance of a tapestry. This process requires extreme dexterity and precision. Audemars Piguet fake

Original Royal Oak’s Petite Tapisserie was originally created and produced by Stern Frères, which ceased activity in 2016. At the same time, Audemars Piguet began to develop processes and technologies in-house after acquiring old guilloche copiers. In 2010, the first self-produced Petite Tapisserie dial came out of the Manufacture’s new dedicated workshop. Today, the guilloche dials of the “Jumbo” models are produced entirely in this workshop.

Both new timepieces feature matching gold hour-markers, Royal Oak hands and AP monogram – all given the original Royal Oak aesthetic. In addition, the corresponding 22-karat pink gold or yellow gold anniversary rotor can be admired through the sapphire caseback.

The first Royal Oak made entirely of gold was launched in 1977 in the Womenswear Royal Oak (ref. 8638) collection in response to growing market demand. A few months later, the Royal Oak “Jumbo” (No. 5402BA) and the so-called 35mm “Royal Oak III” (No. 4100BA) also received gold versions. Less common at the time, rose gold appeared in the Royal Oak collection in the mid-1980s before joining the “Jumbo” collection in 2006, number 15202. These two precious materials are now widely used in the Royal Oak collection.

950 Platinum
Created exclusively for AP Houses, this elegant timepiece features a handcrafted 950 platinum case and bracelet that contrasts with a smoky green dial with a sunburst pattern on the bottom. Launched last year, the auspicious combination won the prize for best “iconic” timepiece at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix in November 2021. The vivid green hue is achieved by adding green pigment to the protective lacquer of the dial. The smoked effect on the periphery of the dial accentuates the intensity of the color while giving it more depth.

The dial is embellished with the traditional “Jumbo” applied hour-markers, the AP monogram at 6 o’clock and the baignoire-shaped Royal Oak hands, all in white gold. They are echoed by the dedicated anniversary oscillating weight in rhodium-coloured 22-karat rose gold, visible through the sapphire caseback.

Platinum first appeared in the Royal Oak collection in the 1980s with the introduction of gold and white gold. In 1992, the first Royal Oak “Jumbo” platinum limited edition came out to celebrate the watch’s 20th anniversary. Anniversary and foundation of Audemars Piguet. Auctioned in support of the Foundation, the one-of-a-kind 39mm Royal Oak Foundation Timepiece (Ref. 14811) includes a dial featuring a model of a gold oak tree depicted by an engraver, echoing the Foundation’s mission to protect forests around the world. Other platinum limited editions followed, such as the 39mm Royal Oak Jubilee (Ref. 14802) added in 1995 with a 20-piece platinum limited edition. Over the years, these very small collections have provided manufacturers with a unique expression of the field, exhibiting a wide variety of dial designs.

The latest 2022 Royal Oak “Jumbo” Ultra-Thin Platinum Watch represents one of the rare 39mm models available today, made from this precious material, that has entered the Royal Oak Core Collection.

Zenith Chronomaster Sport is equipped with the new El Primero 3600 movement, measuring 1/10 second

Replica Zenith Watch Zenith Chronomaster Sport 03.3100.3600/21.M3100

Zenith has just released the new Chronomaster Sport as a ceramic bezel chronograph, equipped with the latest updated El Primero 3600 movement. Zenith Chronomaster Sport is a luxury chronograph with an attractive mainstream design, but even the most tired or experienced watch enthusiast can impress. Chronomaster Sport is equipped with a modern version of the “Striking 10th” movement, allowing users to measure time as low as 1/10 second, making the high-shot El Primero so special.

Recently, Zenith El Primero has been lacking a choice between the retro-style Chronomaster Revival and the highly modern and stylized Defy El Primero series. Similar to the distant cousin of Rolex Daytona, once you carefully observe and appreciate the watchmaking prowess behind it, these two Chronomaster Sport watches that debuted are both Zenith. Although it was inspired by the classic El Primeros and the underrated Zenith De Luca, fortunately, Chronomaster Sport did not go too far.

El Primero 3600 & Striking 10th
The El Primero 3600 movement is not 100% brand new, because a version of it was released in 2019 (El Primero 50th anniversary) limited edition Chronomaster 2 El Primero Striking Tenth (we call it a soft release) if you forget ), but after some improvements, it is now launched as a standard production caliber.

First introduce the background knowledge, in case you are not familiar with the “Striking Tenth” AKA foudroyante statement that dates back to around 2010 (although Zenith was first patented in 2002) and launched the 4052 movement. The high frequency accuracy of 36,000 vph El Primero has theoretically allowed measurement of time as low as 1/10 second, but there is always the question of how to truly measure such a small time increment on a watch. For 4052, Zenith uses a 100-tooth silicon wheel, which can accelerate the chronograph hand to complete rotation in 10 seconds instead of 60 seconds. By doing this, the one-second mark is the normal position chronograph where the ten-second mark is located. If you remember in 2012, Felix Baumgartner wore a Zenith Stratos Flyback Striking 10th equipped with 4052 and jumped 38,969.4 meters, breaking the sound barrier of free fall.

El Primero 3600 Calibre operates at a frequency of 36,000 vph (5 Hz) and has been upgraded and modified several times on the basis of the widely used El Primero 400 caliber. Compared with 326, 314 actually has fewer parts. This is due to technological development and the fact that Zenith has optimized and simplified its manufacturing process to reduce the types of assembled gems, screws and other components. Some of the main features that are immediately worth noting are the addition of a second hand function, a quick date setting function, and a longer power reserve from 50 hours to 60 hours.

The lateral clutch and the enlarged column wheel are updated from the El Primero 400, and Zenith fake has done a great job in creating an unobstructed view in which these parts engage each other. The lateral clutch has a patented system with two intermediate wheels instead of one, and the escape wheel powers the chronograph. In addition, all wheels have been individually improved and optimized to ensure proper torque. El Primero 3600 Calibre is equipped with blue screws and a completely exposed blue column wheel. It is also equipped with a new satin polished star-shaped oscillating weight. The movement’s clock logo, new improvements and decorations make it truly worthy of the exhibition back cover (this is my high praise).

Chronomaster sports watch case and design
According to my calipers, the stainless steel case of the new Chronomaster Sport is 41mm wide and 13.6mm thick, and the height from lug to lug is only about 46.2mm. For comparison, the Rolex Daytona is 40 mm wide and 12.5 mm thick, and the height between the lugs is 46.6 mm, while the new Omega Speedmaster Professional is 42 mm wide and 13.2 mm thick, and the height between the lugs is 47 mm. -The height of the ears. Chronomaster sports models are available in black lacquer or white matte dial, with 100M water resistance

The case is decorated with beveled edges that extend from the lugs to the brushed end links of the bracelet. The new ceramic bezel is indeed the focus of attention, and it is comparable to its peers and some higher-priced alternatives. According to Zenith, this is the first time that 1/10 of the second display has been etched onto the ceramic frame, and I am pretty sure this is true.

Tilting to the high-frequency El Primero movement is Zenith’s right move. I dare say that the reason most people buy luxury chronographs has nothing to do with the complication’s ability to measure time increments of more than an hour, so why not show it off in a way that no one else can do? It is really a sight to see the chronograph hands go around the dial in just 10 seconds. Once we can socialize again in person, I have a feeling that this will be a clever party technique at the next Redbar party. (I did record it to make a gif, but unfortunately technical problems prevented me. Sorry!) best swiss replica watches

Each of the three counters is decorated with a guilloche outer ring with a beautiful long pointer in the center. In the past, I found that the counters on El Primeros overlapped too much like Venn diagrams. Thankfully, they hardly rub each other here. The El Primero color scheme complements the typical panda/anti-panda dial, with the running seconds hand at 6 o’clock in gray, the 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock in dark slate, and the 60-second counter in blue at 3 o’clock. Please note that both chronographs have red hands.

The few limited edition watches that used the early El Primero 3600 movement had a date indicator at 6 o’clock, which has now been moved to 4:30. The date window matches the color of the respective dials. Although the same components are used, Zenith has redesigned and optimized the date dial to achieve easier diversification and customization. The chronograph buttons are beautiful and sturdy, which is familiar to anyone who has operated El Primero. The unique and quirky mechanism makes El Primero’s nerdy charm really shine. In the ocean of luxury chronographs, it is not easy to stand out, but seeing the central chronograph hands revolve around the dial within 10 seconds is a surprise and a childlike joy.

The bracelet is very good, but I really hope that fine-tuning will become a standard feature for watches at this price. This is an integrated bracelet that takes some inspiration from the Gay Fréres bracelet, but keeps the polished central link closer. I think it is meaningless to use Freres completely, because it is more suitable for revival works. The brushed end chain links have a polished bevel, which feels good. Finally, Zenith star decorated folding clasp.

There is also a Cordura-effect rubber strap with a steel unfolding buckle option, although I have only dealt with bracelet models.

I think Zenith positioned it here by matching a classic and beautiful watch with El Primero‘s weird new work, and really showing the function of this high-precision movement.
