Twenty-one years after the launch of Ulysse Nardin’s Freak changed the watch industry forever, the Freak S reinvigorates the collection with a new aesthetic and crazy mechanics reminding us of the modern roots of this company.
There is a watch auctioneer focusing on bringing beauty into auctions rather than chasing world records by concentrating on (the) two highly popular brands: Ineichen based in Zurich.

Professor of economics Brendan Cunningham offers some thoughts on how all of this might just go together.
