THE CONDITION 

A solid high gloss White Gold Case. The watch has no hands: The Freak indicates the time by the rotation of the movement. The arrow decorating the mainspring barrel indicates the hour while the upper bridge, fitted with the balance wheel assembly and its revolutionary Dual Ulysse Escapement, revolves once every hour indicating the minutes. During its 60 minute rotation, the upper bridge lays bare the mechanics of time. The center axis pivots in the sapphire crystal of the watch case. In other Tourbillons, the balance wheel assembly moves once every minute in a cage. In the Freak the whole movement, including the balance wheel assembly rotates once an hour inside the watch case. The watch has no crown as the mainspring located beneath the movement spans the entire case diameter - due to the large spring the watch has a 7 day power reserve, The watch is wound by turning the case back counter-clockwise. There is a port hold in the case back which allows seeing the spring coils. With 14 full winds the watch will be fully wound. The watch is set by turning the top bezel. The bezel can be locked & unlocked by a lever at the 6 o'clock position between the lugs. UN Caliber 200, beats at 28,800 vph contains 28 jewels & has an approximate power reserve of 7 days.
