Franck Muller Vanguard

Unveiled at the 24th edition of the World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie (WPHH), the timepieces from sporty yet stylish Franck Muller 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 Vanguard series 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.
