The World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie (WPHH) set to open in a few days’ time
A virtuoso of exceptional mechanisms driven by a quest for ultimate aesthetics, Franck Muller is enriching its emblematic Vanguard collection with two new references, one for men and another for women. These creations – along with a number of other new launches – will be showcased at the WPHH (World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie) to be held from January 15th to 19th at the Watchland site in Genthod.
VANGUARD™ WORLD TIMER GMT
Franck Muller is living up to its role as a true global citizen with its new Vanguard World Timer GMT. On the dial adorned with a raised world map motif, the reference cities for the 24 time zones enable travellers to keep simultaneous track of the time in two different time zones, without ever losing sight of their home time while criss-crossing the globe, thanks to the 24-hour disc featuring a day/night indicator. Behind this disconcerting simplicity lies the complexity of a self-winding world time movement, crafted and decorated with Franck Muller’s characteristically modern touch.
VANGUARD HEART SKELETON
Mid-way between Haute Horlogerie and Haute Couture, the Vanguard Heart Skeleton reveals other feats, this time relating to the art of skeleton-working interpreted in the feminine mode. Performing a perfectly orchestrated mechanical symphony, the 153 movement components are enhanced by elegant sculpted superimposed hearts forming an airy composition embodying impressive horological aerobatics.
