Celebrating Franck Muller’s mastery of the watchmaking art in its purest tradition, the new Cielo watch boasts a natural blue Aventurine dial. The name of the collection was inspired by the deep blue of Aventurine stone, call to mind the color of the sky at night, whilst the shiny minerals recall the stars.
It needs immense expertise to machine the dial from Aventurine stone, which is very delicate. The dial, very thin, is 0.6 millimeters thick, against the usual 0.9 millimeters. It has been intentionally reduced in order to bring a very slight transparency and thus have a lighter blue. The stone is then drilled in order to hand set diamonds to index the hours.
The new Franck Muller Cielo watch comes with a diamond-set 18K rose gold case. An 18-carat white gold diamond-set version is also available.
The automatic movement is visible though the sapphire crystal caseback. Engraved by hand, this calibre offers a 42 hours power reserve.
The Cielo collection is available with one or two rows of diamonds on the case and different diameters (∅36, ∅39 and ∅42) in order to perfectly fit all wrists. The collection also comes in a version with a white Mother of Pearl dial.
