Why We Love it

In the world of haute horlogerie, where time is not just measured but celebrated, Franck Muller stands as an overlooked luminary.

Established in 1991, the brand's vision was clear: to create timepieces that transcend the mundane, leaning on expressions of individuality and above all, elevating timekeeping to an art form. 

Muller the man and Muller the brand have brought a lot to the world of modern horology, and his colorful, mid-1990s/early-2000s tonneau-shaped dress watch collection perfectly exhibits a design language that walks a fine line between classical and whimsical. Incorporate the highly respected mechanical craftsmanship of a perpetual calendar and moonphase complication and you have the Franck Muller 2850 QP.

This particular Franck Muller Perpetual Calendar Moonphase 2850 QP, dates to the 2000s, and is housed in a 31mm x 38mm 18k yellow gold case with a curved sapphire crystal, an unsigned crown and corrector pushers located along the case flanks. The satin silver dial features Frank Muller’s playful ‘Arabic’ markers with a set of silver radial sub-registers, a moonphase by way of a crescent aperture display and matching ‘spade’ hands.

Powered by a FM Calibre automatic-winding movement featuring a perpetual calendar highlighting leap year indicator and moonphase, and fitted to a signed alligator strap with a matching gold tang buckle, this particular FM is a handsome thing that tastefully blends all the signature features we’ve come to know from the brand. 

Despite their under-the-radar profile, Franck Muller timepieces are still some of the best in the world with respect to dressy complications, and this wildly fun limited edition — marking a quarter-century of the Swiss brand's eccentric watchmaking — is no exception.

Brand Story

+
Franck Muller, born to an Italian mother and a Swiss father, got his start in watchmaking at a young age, enrolling in watchmaking school at age 15 and graduating from Ecole d'Horlogerie de Genève in the 1980s. After a start repairing high-end pocket watches for private clients and museums, he created his own tourbillon-equipped wristwatch in 1984. In 1991, he established his own eponymous brand.
Known for their distinctive tonneau-shaped cases, Franck Muller watches frequently contain high complications and are produced in limited series, such as the triple-axis tourbillon — a world first that premiered in 2004 after a years-long development period. Alongside these highly complicated pieces are time-only and time-and-date models that take the best in design languages from classic brands like Cartier and marry it to contemporary movements and stunning dials.
Beloved the world over, Franck Muller watches dazzle with their unique aesthetics and sophisticated horology, and have been worn by celebrities as varied as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Paris Hilton. The brand currently has five watchmaking facilities and hundreds of retailers across the globe.
