Freak DIAMonSIL

    The Freak turned watchmaking on its head when it was unveiled. The arrangement of parts was so unorthodox—it essentially had no true case. The crystal and the bezel were actually part of the movement; the Freak had no crown, no hands, and the movement pivoted to indicate time. It contained fewer parts than the simplest watch today and remained a carousel tourbillon by necessity. The Freak DIAMonSIL in platinum is the first timepiece sporting a synthetic nanocrystal diamond escapement grown on a silicon raw part. This is a limited edition of 28 pieces.
