To be unveiled at the WPHH - A Watchland extension and a feminine take on the Vanguard Crazy Hours

 Two new buildings that first began to emerge in 2018 have been added to the unique Watchland site in Genthod. At last completed, this vast building project sets the perfect finishing touch to this Geneva location and enables the group to unite its 450 employees and all stages in the production of Franck Muller watches together on one site. This new facility will be unveiled from January 14th to 18th at the next World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie (WPHH). As a foretaste, enjoy a preview of the new Vanguard Crazy Hours™ collection, this time dedicated to women, which will be introduced in a few days’ time to collectors, clients and devotees of the Maison.


The Vanguard Crazy Hour for women

Among this year's new models presented at the 29th WPHH exhibition is the Vanguard™ collection, to which Franck Muller adds a legendary and no less complex complication, the Crazy Hours, while dedicating it this year to female wrists. Bold and expertly crafted, this timepiece displays numerals in an unconventional order, with an atypical Art Deco pop-art style. Driven by a patented mechanism, the central hours hand jumps from one hour to the next, consistently following the correct sequence of numerals even though they are randomly placed on the dial. Every 60 minutes, the hand jumps to the next correct numeral, while the minutes hand continues its traditional sweep around the dial. This new and truly out-of-the-ordinary interpretation of time becomes a fascinating visual game.
