Rolf Schnyder, the owner and president of Ulysse Nardin, turned 75 this year, and to celebrate 75 years of adventure and achievements, the renowned Swiss brand is introducing the new limited edition Freak Diavolo. The watch pays tribute to the brand’s unparalleled advancements in technology, materials and design. The limited edition Freak Diavolo Rolf 75 in platinum comes complete with Schnyder’s signature on the case. Like its predecessors, the Freak DIAMonSIL, Freak Diamond Heart and Freak Blue Phantom, the new special Freak symbolizes the innovation that has characterized Ulysse Nardin’s rebirth. The Freak took the watchmaking industry by storm with the use of silicium and an inspiring combination of technical innovation and aesthetics. Rolf Schnyder said…

To celebrate my 75th birthday, I’ve chosen the Freak because it was an historic breakthrough for Ulysse Nardin and for the watch industry in general, and it is by far our most important piece.
