You may not think a stylish mechanical watch and a yacht pumped up with over 2,000 horsepower, and capable of hitting speeds over 75 mph, have anything in common. But they do. Especially when you compare Midnight Express boats—like their 43-foot-long rocket blasting across Florida’s Biscayne Bay—with the Freak Vison watch by Ulysse Nardin.
Both are built with high-tech materials to exacting specifications. Both have received critical acclaim. And both are created by companies offering a variety of models produced to extremely high standards.
Hand built in the company’s Florida factory, Midnight Express boats are customizable (and highly recognizable) with a range of performance and luxury options. In fact, owners are invited to visit the factory as their new boat is being built.
Meanwhile, the craftsmanship and skill it takes to create Ulysse Nardin’s Freak Vison watch is off the charts. With no true case, crown, or hands, and a movement that pivots on itself to indicate time, a Freak Vison is a true freak of a watch.
But more than anything else, both are freakishly exclusive works of art that give their lucky owners the unique pleasure of owning the very best.
