Franck Muller Vanguard “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022” Limited Edition

The year 2022 marks The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Seventy years of reign, the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. For this occasion and after submitting the designs to Buckingham Palace, Franck Muller is presenting an exceptional limited edition applying its fine watchmaking talents.

Featuring the colours and emblems of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, all in its famous Vanguard case, the collection highlights inestimable values: history and incredible know-how.

To celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022, Franck Muller presents three very special collections in honour of Her Majesty.

Each collection will consist of 70 timepieces bearing the serial numbers of each year of her reign, from 1952 to 2022. The limited edition features collections designed in search of a perfect fusion of technology and beauty.

The first version dedicated for the ladies is inspired by the historic milestone of the Platinum Jubilee emblem and Her Majesty’s royal cypher at 6 o’clock. The second lady collection is in hand-setting diamonds.

The third version, the men’s collection, is decorated with the colours of the Union Jack flag and the Queen’s cypher placed at 12 o’clock.

On the back, the Platinum Jubilee emblem is engraved along with the serial number indicating a year of her reign. The raised numerals are painted and applied by hand on each dial.

In reference to the Platinum Jubilee, the crown of the watches will be made of this material and Franck Muller has made unique straps with colours matching this event and the United Kingdom.

To mark the occasion, each watch will be delivered with a special limited edition box.
