Among the new models presented this year at the WPHH there is also the Franck Muller Vanguard Crazy Hours Lady specially designed for women. The brand thus adds another timepiece governed by the crazy complication that allowed the watchmaker Franck Muller to write an unusual page of Haute Horlogerie.
Unique and finely finished this Vanguard shows the numbers in an unconventional order, with a new art déco pop art style. Driven by a patented mechanism, the central hour hand jumps from one hour to the next following the correct sequence of numbers even if they are randomly placed on the dial.
Every sixty minutes the sphere of hours jumps exactly to the next number, while the minute hand continues its traditional turn around the dial. This representation of time out of the ordinary becomes an intriguing visual game.
Available in different colors, the new Vanguard Crazy Hours Lady display the functions of jumping hours, minutes and seconds thanks to the mechanical movement with automatic winding FM 1000 CH with diamond-polished bridges and decorated in Côtes de Genève. The oscillating mass is engraved with sun rays.
Characterized by a structure that alternates concave convex bridges, the iconic Cintrée Curvex case undeniably attracts the eye. In 18k rose gold with a width of 32 mm for a length of 42 mm, combined with an alligator leather strap, this new Franck Muller 2019 goes perfectly with the feminine wrist.
The unusual sequence of Arabic numerals surrounded by a gold profile is applied to the lacquered dial which recalls its profile.
