Rodolphe and the engineers at the Franck Muller Group have created the INSTINCT 5053 TOURBILLON model to satisfy connoisseurs of fine luxury watchmaking who wish to own a timepiece combining outstanding design with the most prestigious watchmaking complications.
As the first venture by the Jura-based brand into the world of grand complications, this piece immediately captures attention with its balanced and uncompromising aesthetic bordering on the avant-garde. Over 190 components – entirely designed, developed, manufactured, decorated and assembled in Switzerland in the workshops of the Franck Muller Group in Geneva, Neuchâtel and Jura – are needed to turn this movement into a masterpiece of aesthetic quality and precision.
The fortunate owner of this timekeeper can admire the workings of its movement through the skeleton dial and discover with awe and respect the quality of the workmanship of the craftsmen and watchmakers who have participated in the development and decoration of this watch model.
