The Freak is also a forerunner in the industry using Silicium Technology, it embodies the sound dexterity and technological advancement in artistic watchmaking. The Freak is also the recipient of the Innovation Prize Award in 2001 with widely acclaimed names such as “kinetic art” and “wrist poetry”, revolutionising the watchmaking industry.
