The Swiss luxury watch manufacture Franck Muller and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Geneva have partnered to create a unique car which reflects the exclusive aura of both fine watchmaking and bespoke luxury car manufacturing.
The ultimate Gran Tourismo for the connoisseur and most powerful Rolls-Royce, Wraith Black Badge, is the natural choice to serve as a face for such unique project. The individual personality of both brands will materialize in a Bespoke Black Badge collection inspired by Franck Muller’s famous “Crazy Hours”. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Geneva has published design sketches which hint towards Wraith “Crazy Numbers”.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Geneva has a legacy in facilitating outstanding projects to personalize customer cars. From the colour selection to unique details, the style of “Wraith Crazy Numbers” will reflect the design of Frank Muller’s iconic Crazy Hours.
The motor car comes in a stunning Velvet Sparkle exterior finish, with a Twin-Coachline motif in Silver/Cobalto Blue pointing towards the «numbers» theme. The interior presents perfect harmony with the main colour Cobalto Blue and refers to the theme with a unique dashboard fascia and embroidered numbers on the rear console. Interior highlight is the Starlight Headliner depicting the “Crazy Hours” watch face. The carefully thought-out details follow the Rolls-Royce traditions and represent a decent sense of personal style.
Production of «Wraith Crazy Numbers» will commence shortly, the actual motor car will be presented in the 4th quarter 2020.
For this exclusive partnership, Franck Muller has selected its most iconoclastic complication, the Crazy Hours™. The collection combines boldness, creativity and poetry with the exceptional Haute Horlogerie know-how of Franck Muller.
To celebrate the masterpiece car, Franck Muller is manufacturing a unique Crazy Hours™ collection inspired by the world of Rolls-Royce. The collection will show Franck Muller numbers in the well-known unconventional order, typical of the Crazy Hours timepieces.
The dial displays the color codes of the car and its sophisticated details that we can found on dashboards and Rolls-Royce seats’. The self-winding mechanical movement offers 42 hours of power reserve.
Thanks to its patented Crazy Hours mechanism, the collection offers a new reading of time. The central hour hand literally jumps from the numerals one to twelve placed atypically on the dial, as such, 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.
