Ulysse Nardin | Freak X Aventurine


Like a fragment of a celestial vault, this galaxy of infinitely small and brilliant particles elegantly adorns the new Freak X. Its glittering effect can be admired, like that which sailors often observe on the surface of the Ocean in the dark of a full moon night. The surface of the sea always gives a clue to the secrets of its depths. Aventurine is an ideal material for beckoning us on a journey.
 
Though the stars appear to be randomly spread in the cosmos, nothing here has been left “to chance.” Legend surrounding aventurine recounts that in the thirteenth century, on the island of Murano in Venice, home to the famous glass-makers, a craftsman inadvertently let some copper filings fall into a pot of molten glass, so creating aventurine glass, or “avventurina” in Italian, meaning “by accident”.
