Franck Muller Vanguard

Unveiled at the 24th edition of the World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie (WPHH), the timepieces from sporty yet stylish Vanguard collection feature harmonious contours, flawless finesse and impeccably balanced proportions.

Distinguished by the nature of its inexhaustible sources of inspiration, Franck Muller never ceases to inscribe its hallmark on the avant-garde creations. Sailing in a new direction with  its  riveting  shape, the  collection  Vanguard  calls  in  for  clean  and  futuristic  aesthetics.   It  breathes  individuality  with  its  harmonious  contours,  flawless  finesse  and  impeccably  balanced proportions. Lines and curves have been worked to brew elegance along with its sporty characteristics.

With  the  classic  Curvex  case  ensuring  a  firm  grip  on  the  Franck  Muller  traditions,  the  collection takes a new dimension with its distinct numerals. The appliqué relief numbers that instantly grab attention are carefully hand-polished and brushed.  The audacious and aggressive numerals perfectly complement the striking dial and robust winding crown.

Instead of the regular spring-bar technique, the strap is artistically integrated into the case with the help of two unseen screws. The rubber on the inside of the strap effortlessly takes the form of a bold wrist, while the Croco on the top instills grace. Modeled to perfection, the handsome blend of rubber and Croco creates absolute harmony with the iconic Cintrée Curvex case.

Sporting an automatic movement, the entire line is  available in titanium, red gold and red ergal  and  is  further  seen  in  two  variants  –  classic and  chronograph.  With  its  dynamic masculine  look  and  unparalleled  style,  this  collection  rightly  puts  Franck  Muller  in  the vanguard of a new design trend.
