Franck Muller and the tourbillon collections Featured

Amongst the watchmaker's most important world premieres and patents
by 05 December 2011

Relativity is the theme in the Crazy Hours Tourbillon which breaks free from traditional time perception. The dial features a seemingly jumbled display of hours. The idea behind this design is that you can read the hour indications the way you want, assigning different importance to different hours. The Jumping Hours Tourbillon deftly combines the incredible flying tourbillon, showing the seconds, with an hour display and a single central hand which indicates the minute. The creator of the famous Cintrée Curvex case offers the smallest tourbillon in the world with the Tourbillon Lady collection, catering to women who want complicated yet precious timepieces.

Mr. Muller designs for watch lovers and collectors from all walks of life and the Master Banker Tourbillon is dedicated to the jetset. On the dial, three different time zones are displayed and you can include cities with half-hour time zones too. An avid traveller himself, Mr. Muller makes sure all time zones on this watch are easily adjustable with the crown. The masterpiece of all the tourbillon collections might just be the Minute Repeater Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon. The grande complication movement boasts not only hour, minute and 24-hour, but also days of the week, months, years and moon phases display. All the components are housed in the signature Cintrée Curvex case. In line with Swiss high watchmaking traditions, all the movements mentioned are decorated with Côtes de Genève, showcasing Franck Muller’s design acumen and watchmaking know-how.
