Haute Time was in San Francisco this week, where I had the chance to visit my good friends Arya and Shapur Mozaffarian. I stopped by their boutique on the prestigious Post Street yesterday, and when I came in Arya had a wonderful surprise in store for me.
I got an exclusive look at #1 of 99 numbered pieces of the limited edition Ulysse Nardin Freak Phantom. Released this year at BaselWorld, this is the newest Freak, and it is one of our favorites. Best of all, the piece I saw was the first of this limited collection, which made it even more special.
The Freak Phantom was produced in-house by Ulysse Nardin, with an eight-day “flying” carrousel tourbillon. Check it out in action:
The watch features a 45mm diameter case in 18k rose gold, and retails for $137,000.
There’s only one #1, so if you want to be the lucky haute horlogerie collector to get your hands on it, contact Shapur in San Francisco at 415.392.1200.
