Franck Muller Vanguard Yachting Crazy Hours

Franck Muller expands their Vanguard™ Yachting collection by unveiling its new Crazy Hours™ timepiece dedicated to the sea world.

Franck Muller Vanguard Yachting Crazy Hours

Showing hour numerals in the most unconventional order, the Crazy Hours is one of the most emblematic complications of Franck Muller brand. The collection offers a unique reading of time, thanks to a patented mechanism, that allows the hour hand to cleverly jump from one hour to the next in the correct order.
