Why We Love it

Franck Muller is a brand that doesn't get a lot of attention in today's steel sport watch-centric consumer mindset.

And we think that's a damn shame.

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.

This particular piece, a chronograph Reference 96.01, is simply something that you simply would not expect from the brand.

Produced in the mid 1990s to celebrate the brands sponsorship of a McLaren F1 GTR that ran in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995, this piece had design language from mid-century chronographs in mind — something that we feel they certainly achieved — with a very Franck Muller twist...

It features a nearly perfectly sized and traditionally proportioned 37mm steel case with a stepped bezel, a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and barrel pushers. Inside however, it houses a standout orange dial with luminous 'Arabic' indices, recessed black subsidiary registers framed by silver rings, a matching black outer minute track, and a manually wound Lemania Calibre 1873 chronograph movement.

Despite their under-the-radar profile, Franck Muller timepieces are still some of the best in the world of dressy complications. This piece, however, is a brilliant display of the brands ability to flex more traditional watchmaking that appeals to a larger audience.

Give this one a whirl and see what we mean!

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.
