A post some time ago reminded me of what I had wanted to do for quite a while: Since Ulysse Nardin's marvelous "Freak" and its unique Double Direct Escapement is so popular, I thought it would be nice to have a brief article, explaining how it works.

Fortunately, I could use some magnificent material produced by Ulysse Nardin, most notably a Powerpoint presentation made for the press and dealer instruction. All I did was to put together the PP-slides into a single webpage, and finally to animate the escapement.

I hope you like it, and join me in thanking UN for the good and instructive material.
