The Maison proposes two new dangerously designed Freak X models: an explosive lava red carbon-fibre tour de force and a cool frosted white force of nature.

Made from a seismic combination of ultra-light carbon fiber and red, marbled epoxy resin, each Freak X Magma is unique. With a red point-de-bride and a black leather strap – equipped with a folding clasp – it is evocative of obsidian volcanic rock and the lava flow at its origin; the combination of sandblasted and polished-effects on the bezel and a satiny smooth dial reflects a volcanic environment. The Superluminova applied on red color allows the wearer to read the time even in the pitch of night. The open case back of this boutique-only edition lays bare the UN-230 self-winding movement – a masterpiece of Ulysse Nardin’s legendary watchmaking.

To embody this volatile life force, Ulysse Nardin is partnering with Carsten Peter, a nature photographer and storyteller of the Xtreme. His Xplosive images take the viewer to places most would never dare to go; over glaciers, into tornadoes and right up to the intense heat present around volcanoes. Carsten is an award-winning regular contributor to National Geographic Magazine specialized in capturing never-before-seen images of some of the most remote and dangerous places on the planet.

Ice and fire join forces in this new incandescent Freak X Ice model. Reminiscent of prehistoric glaciers with its titanium alabaster watch case, this fresh model will give your winter lips a feverish touch. Inside the Freak X Ice beats the UN-230 self-winding movement, visible through the open case-back. The sturdy, adjustable, white leather strap with rubber coating is equipped with a folding clasp while navy blue indexes, point-de-bride and Superluminova evoke the polar ice floes, making each watch a call to adventure on your wrist.
