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.

Franck Muller is renowned for their vibrant and visually captivating dials. The Color Dreams collection, for instance, showcases an array of bright hues, with each dial resembling a miniature canvas where said colors dance harmoniously. Each watch exudes an avant-garde design language that balances the classical and the whimsical, bringing a much-needed, playful approach to modern horology.

This Franck Muller embodies everything that is the brand. Quirky and cool at the same time, the Cintrée Curvex Crazy Hour is one of the few watches that is eccentric both on the aesthetic side, and the complication. Cased in a 32mm 18K white gold, tonneau-shaped bubble, the crazy hours compilation randomly distributes the hour markers out of their conventional order. This in effect causes the hour hand to jump around the dial throughout the day, instead of progressing clockwise as usual.

Arguably nowhere else in the industry will you find a watch that says so much at this price point. The Cintrée Curvex is the perfect watch for a particular personality — you know who you are! Someone who loves the spontaneous, appreciates a little goofiness, and wants to enjoy watches without taking things too seriously will undoubtedly get a kick out of this piece. And we are all for it!

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.
