Franck Muller Vanguard™ Tourbillon Minute Repeater

Confirming its reputation of Master of Complications, Swiss luxury watch manufacture Franck Muller presents an extraordinary open-worked minute repeater. The combination of Haute Horlogerie craftsmanship and high expertise allowed Franck Muller to manufacture this incredibly complicated movement.

Powered by a manual mechanical movement of 389 components and 33 jewels that is wholly designed in-house, the timepiece features an impressive power reserve of 60 hours. Furthermore, the Vanguard Tourbillon Minute Repeater features a large watch case built to accommodate the space needed by the complex movement.

The Minute Repeater mechanism can be activated at will by means of a slide-bottom situated at 8 o’clock. The hammers chime two gongs, sounding the hours, quarters and minutes.

This newly skeletonized timepiece showcases the incredible Franck Muller savoir-faire in one of the most complex feats of watchmaking. It embodies the fantastic match between innovation, modern design and the respect of the Haute Horlogerie traditions.
