Franck Muller VANGUARD™ Racing

The automobile-inspired Vanguard™ Racing sports watches from Franck Muller boast pure and stylish engine-turned aesthetics. With its harmonious contours, flawless finesse and impeccably balanced proportions, the lines and curves have been worked to brew elegance along with its sporty characteristics. Inspired by motorsport aesthetics, the indexes and iconic numbers, applied by hand, instantly grab the attention and perfectly complement the dial, the robust winding crown; and immerse in the automobile world.

Instead of the regular spring-bar technique, the strap is artistically integrated into the case with the help of two unseen screws. The rubber inside the strap effortlessly takes the shape of the wrist, while the leather with holes pattern gives a handsome engine-turned aestheticism.

Sporting an automatic movement, the Vanguard™ Racing line is available in 18k rose or stainless steel, chronograph or a classic hours, minutes and seconds.
