‘FreakLab Tourbillon’, published at the Baselworld 2015, contains the creativity that represents Athens. Today, the Athens Watch Factory has launched a limited edition of 99 revolutionary watches for its boutiques, bringing new inspiration, and once again surprises watch enthusiasts with full creativity and demanding technology.
For fourteen years, the appearance of the Freak Tourbillon series has rewritten the entire watchmaking industry, with each new engineering and design feat raising the bar. The Freak Tourbillon launched in 2001 was the first watch to be equipped with a silicon escapement; a diamond escapement was used in 2005; and a two-way silicon crystal escapement was also launched in the same year. Every evolution of Freak Tourbillon has created outstanding achievements and brought surprises; it is still an unparalleled and extraordinary watch.
Similarly, FreakLab Tourbillon is still extraordinary.
This is the first Freak Tourbillon series that puts the balance in the center of the watch, and adds the date function and the innovative UlyChoc safety system, which is a new generation of shock absorbers designed and developed by the Athens Watch Factory.
However, what makes the FreakLab Tourbillon Limited Watch unique is the use of special materials, including black titanium and carbon fiber. The middle case and lugs are made of black titanium, while the bezel is made of extremely hard carbon fiber. The combination of the two materials into a very durable watch, and let wearers show charm and vitality.
The operation of the watch is very simple. You can turn the bezel by releasing the safety lock at 6 o’clock. You can set the hour and minute by turning clockwise, and you can adjust the date by turning counterclockwise. The rotating back cover can wind the mainspring, and the barrel is designed for a 7-day power reserve.
The watch is all black, with stylish simple wave patterns and carbon fiber patterns, the pattern extends to the leather strap, the watch itself is already a trend mark, but also shows a unique durability. Just like the Freak Tourbillon previously launched, this watch is definitely the ideal choice for collectors seeking an unparalleled watch.
