This is a "mass" of silicium. A compound that resembles freeze dried mercury.
From this, the various critical elements that allow the Freak to work and to discharge it's power into an unconventional escapement.
This 2012 is the wrold's tenth anniversary of a watch without a case.
With the most demanding task being the assembly of the balance wheel.
An era with which today, many will use, including Patek and Breguet.
The parts demand profiles so small, it is not possible to make by any human machine.
Pierre Gygax explained in 2007, how after 5 years, the Freak grew into the Innovision Freak.
I recall that I had wondered aloud with him, how a tourbillon fixed onto the balance maybe mischievious and will create a philosophical puzzle..a tourbillon within a carousel that has no decorative parts...each part, each shape, are functional.
The 2007 platinum Freak shrouded in black paint..the megaFreak, called innovision.
My favorite place to have a beer and a pork leg in Zurich.
The hilly slopes where Sigatec and Mimotec and...Giger's Alien were born. Those were the seminal ingredients of the Freak's incredible journey to its 10th birthday.
My own Diavolo Freak number 0.
