The first Innovision included a double escape wheel escapement in silicon, a silicon escape wheel bridge, silicon bearings, a monoblock shock protection system in silicon for the balance, and a silicon balance spring; it was as much a reminder to thethat Ulysse Nardin was the very first to use silicon in a watch in the original 2000 Freak, as anything else.
Innovision 2 goes a step further. Like the original Innovision, it makes extensive use of silicon, but in next-generation designs. One of the key components is the Dual Constant Escapement, which is an evolution of the Ulysse Nardin Anchor Escapement, using two silicon escape wheels. This is a constant force escapement, with some similarities to the Girard-Perregaux Constant Escapement; as the anchor locks and unlocks, it alternately tensions and releases energy from two blade springs, providing unvarying torque to the balance. In general configuration, it looks a lot like the Dual Ulysse escapement (a variation on Breguet’s “natural” escapement) but with the addition of a constant force feature.
