Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE OPS - The Bezel Change

It’s time for us to dig deeper into the new marvel presented by Ulysse Nardin! Ulysse Nardin is at it again, rocking the horology world with the release of the Freak ONE OPS at Dubai Watch Week 2023. You remember Freak ONE, right? 

Brace yourself because this new kid on the block takes everything cool about the Freak ONE and cranks it up a notch! It does this with a fresh khaki green and black tactical vibe, inspired by the earlier Freak X OPS model. Keep reading our Ulysse Nardin Freak One OPS review for more facts about this mind-blowing piece!

Journey Through Time

Since 1846, these Swiss watch wizards have been weaving a tale of tradition and innovation. We can think of precision marine chronometers guiding ships across vast oceans. Ulysse Nardin’s journey? It’s a mix of timeless tradition and groundbreaking feats, like the game-changing Freak that flipped the watch world upside down.

Today, their watches are real-style statements that blend old-school art with cutting-edge tech. Ulysse Nardin doesn’t follow the crowd, it leads.

Tip: Did you know that the Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometer was first launched in 1846? This watch was designed to meet the needs of mariners and explorers. This is because its accuracy was crucial for setting the course of a ship and navigating foreign shores.

Style Reloaded: The Tactical Twist

We can see a new sleek 44mm black DLC-coated titanium case, giving off those mysterious and tactical vibes. Despite its substantial size, the watch boasts a slim profile of just 12mm. What may always be anticipated of this timepiece is its water resistance. Yet, we cannot say this is another Ulysse Nardin diver watch, it’s not. It would be fantastic if Ulysse Nardin strengthened this case and provided a waterproof feature greater than the current 30m.

But hold on, it’s not just a color swap from the original Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE. The bezel, instead of the red gold swagger, now flaunts Carbonium – an eco-friendly move that reduces its environmental impact by a huge 40%. Ulysse Nardin isn’t playing it safe but it plays smart and trendy!

Ulysse Nardin Freak One OPS – No Winding Crown Here

Ever seen a watch without a winding crown? Well, the Freak ONE OPS is throwing it back to its roots – no winding crown in sight. Setting the time is as easy as giving the external bezel a spin, thanks to Ulysse Nardin’s signature move.

And guess what? Accidental adjustments? Not happening. There’s a nifty locking mechanism in place, guaranteeing your watch stays on time.

Tip: This brand indeed has many things to offer! Speaking of luxury watch marvels, there’s the Ulysse Nardin Michelangelo! The price range for this luxury timepiece reflects the use of precious materials and the brand’s reputation. We can compare it to the well-known A Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk.

It’s Tactical Inside Out

This bad boy isn’t just about the exterior game! It’s got moves inside too. The Ulysse Nardin Freak ONE OPS houses the Caliber UN-240 automatic movement. This one is a powerhouse made up of 229 components. Running at a smooth 21,600bph and boasting a generous 90-hour power reserve, this movement is the real deal.

Blue silicon components, a rotating frame with four blades. It’s like a mechanical ballet happening in there! We must say we are impressed!

Dialing Up the Funk – No Traditional Dial Here

Say goodbye to the conventional dial and hour hand. We can see the new Freak ONE OPS doing things differently.

A rotating khaki green disc with a sunray pattern takes center stage. It tells the time with a V-shaped luminous indicator. The minute hand? It’s part of the minute bridge assembly, pulling off a 60-minute flying carousel tourbillon move. This watch was made for the show!
