Born from a pioneering spirit in 2001, and completely redesigned in 2013 to bring it into line with the seafaring theme cherished by Ulysse Nardin, the Freak Cruiser is hoisting the mainsail and heading for blue ocean waters.

Never before has a watch accomplished such a conceptual and technological leap forward for watchmaking – a feat that remains unrivaled even today. Stripped of its dial and hands, the Blue Cruiser is designed so that the movement revolves on itself. Connected to the center of this incredible ship, the rotating lower bridge indicates the hours, while the upper bridge, in the form of a skeletonized ship's anchor shows the minutes. Named the flying Carrousel-Tourbillon, this system which defies the imagination is entirely free floating, as it no longer includes the center pin which in previous incarnations was stowed with the sapphire crystal to support the entire structure.

In 18 ct white or rose gold, this avant-garde vessel measures a respectable 45 mm in diameter and is, by its very nature, suited to voyages of all kinds.
