You can see a few changes were made for the final version of the Freak Diavolo, including the yellow colored seconds scale near the tourbillon and the addition of the "Rolf 75" part of the name. "Rolf" refers to Rolf Schnyder, the owner of Ulysse Nardin. His autograph is engraved on the lower part of the case. A fine idea, but really sort of detracts from the overall look of the watch. If I was wearing the piece, I think I might always mistake the signature for scratches on the case. And why the 75? Because the Freak Diavolo watch will be limited to just 75 pieces.
The impressive movement is something which I covered before, and isn't simple to explain. The innovative "minute hand" is part of the movement itself, and the movement further uses a lot of silicium parts - something Ulysse Nardin did for the first time with the original Freak back in 2001. The manually wound mechanical movement has more than 8 days of power reserve. The case of the watch will be offered in platinum. Look for the Ulysse Nardin Freak Diavolo Rolf 75 limited edition watch soon.
