Franck Dubarry Crazy Wheel II Gravitational GMT

The Franck Dubarry Crazy Wheel 2 is a Swiss made automatic watch collection made for extreme sport performance and avant-garde design aficionados. The Crazy Wheel II Gravitational GMT watch houses an in-house movement re-engineered to display a second time zone on a disruptive reading level.

In opposition with other GMT watches where second time zone is difficult to read, the this watch offers a unique graphically engineered second time zone that gravitates around the dial with local time in order to immediately tell the owner, what time it is at home.

The sleek design of the case is made of Titanium Grade 5 and different types of colored carbon, highlighting lines inspired by the automotive industry. The watch comes fitted with the innovative Nomex® strap.

For this watch, Franck Dubarry unveils a brand new case design; with an innovative case architecture made of titanium, vulcanized rubber, composite colored layered carbon or weaved carbon fiber. Inspired by the automotive industry and by the original Crazy Wheel collection, the sleek lines highlight a lightweight case made of technological materials & polymers, protecting the movement from extreme shocks.

The in-house 360° flying bridge has been completely re-engineered to display two different time zones. The Home-time can be read at the tip of the hour hand carrying the 360° sub dial now indicating the Local-time on a twelve-hour revolution. A mechanical differential allows the disc to remain horizontal while telling the different time zones. The minute hand rotates freely around the dial.

The patented polymer Nomex®, mainly used in space, aeronautics or racing, is a heat, chemical and radiation resistant fabric. Franck Dubarry unveils an exclusive strap design made with Nomex®, with a quick release feature allowing his owner to easily change the strap to any other material provided in the future.

The Crazy Wheel 2 GMT is available in 6 different versions: 5 versions in different colors with composite carbon cases, and 1 version (yellow) with carbon fiber on the case and dial.
