Franck Muller Vanguard Crazy Hours™ Lady

With its harmonious contours, flawless finesse and impeccably balanced proportions, the Vanguard Crazy Hours™ Lady combines boldness, creativity and poetry with the exceptional Haute Horlogerie know-how of Franck Muller.

With its sun-stamped lacquered dial with hologram numbers and distinct numerals applied by hand, the Vanguard Crazy Hours™ Lady ensures a firm grip on the Franck Muller traditions, with a youthful and futuristic aesthetic.

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 shape of the wrist, while the alligator on the top instills grace. Modeled to perfection, the handsome blend of rubber and alligator creates absolute harmony with the iconic Vanguard case.

The lines of the case give a sporty and modern character to this collection, which has been designed to express the concept of time as an abstract construct.

The Crazy Hours complication offers a unique reading of time, showing hour numerals in the most unconventional order. Thanks to a patented mechanism, the central hour hand literally jumps from one hour to the next, respectfully following the randomly numbers on the dial. Thereby, after every 60 minutes, the hour hand would jump to the next correct number. Meanwhile, the minute hand follows a conventional 60-minute cycle revolving around the dial.
