Franck Muller Crazy Hour with the arrangement of Arabic numerals has caused countless attention and speculation since its launch. This watch subverts the concept of inherent time.

Franck Muller is definitely a contemporary watchmaker. He has been studying watchmaking since he was a child. After graduating from the Geneva Watch School, FP Journe, Kari Voutilainen and he are repairing antique clocks. As early as the 1980s, he already started to make his own watch and named it “Franck Genève”. In 1991, Franck Muller teamed up with the case manufacturer Vartan Sirmakes to establish the Franck Muller watch factory in Geneva and officially launched the watch brand–Franck Muller.

Before he founded Franck Muller, he has produced two very powerful pieces. One was the most complicated watch in the world at the time, and the other was the Rolex Perpetual Calendar.

In 1989, Franck Muller got a Louis Elysee Pigue big self-sounding three-question caliber. After getting this movement, he made an amazing move: transforming the pocket watch movement into a three-question time with big self-sounding, small self-sounding, questioning, asking, perpetual calendar until 2100, week, date, month, retrograde month time difference program, moon phase profit and loss, 24-hour display, and temperature display function.

The movement is wrapped in a Breguet-style case made of 950 platinum, and Franck Muller also tailored the platinum dial made by Grandjean. Franck Muller added 160 parts to the original movement, bringing the total number of parts to 651. This one-of-a-kind watch masterpiece has written an important page in the history of the watch industry. No one in the world ever made such a complicated watch. Three years later, in 1992, this successfully modified watch was unveiled at the Basel exhibition in Switzerland, becoming the most complicated watch of the exhibition.

Louis Elysee Pigue, the most complicated watch that was converted to the show, was a self-sounding three-question movement.

In 1989, Franck Muller also made a Rolex perpetual calendar watch. Prior to this, he won a gold Rolex (Ref. 16238) in the watch competition. In order to commemorate his friendship, he transformed this Rolex into a watch with a perpetual calendar function.
It is amazing that after the renovation of Franck Muller, the original case was also can be used! He removed the calendar component of Dayjust and joined his perpetual calendar. It is very rare to superimpose a more complex perpetual calendar in a space of only about 2 mm in thickness.

Transformed into a Rolex Ref.16238 with perpetual calendar function

From the above watches, the genius Franck Muller is innovative in creating an absolutely outstanding watch and is also good at modifying the unique functions on the basic movement.

Crazy Hours watch, launched in 2003, is arguably the culmination of his superb watchmaking craftsmanship and infinite creativity.

Franck Muller Crazy Hours scale

Although I have been mixed in the watchmaking for a few years, it can only be seen if I encounter hundreds of thousands of dollars of watches. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that I cannot offer them.

However, wearing a watch may not be an elite, or it may be scum. If a watch in the hands of scum, how can the outcome be imagined? Let’s look at a real case first.

One night, Tony drove in the suburbs of Tennessee. Because the speed was too fast, he slipped out of control and rushed out of the road. He accidentally crushed the camping of Danny on the roadside lawn. There is $860,000 Franck Muller and cell phone in the handbag. In this crushing, the watch is naturally “smashed”. Later, he went to the insurance company to make a claim. When the insurance company reviewed it, it found that the case seemed familiar.

A few months ago, in Kentucky, a $300,000 Swiss women watch was hit hard. Then the insurance company offers a premium of up to $300,000. After the investigation, they are criminal gangs. So the insurance company immediately called the police.

They bought second-hand watches on the Internet and then collided with each other to pretend to be a traffic accident, thus achieving the purpose of defrauding high premiums. Since the insurance claim is paid according to the public price of the new watch. It is this tempting huge reward that allows them to take risks.

So, which watch is the $860,000 Franck Muller in this case? We know that the price of the Franck Muller entry is usually less than $80,000. When it comes to Franck Muller high-end models, Vanguard is champion.

Vanguard has always been a series of brands that symbolize the evolution and innovation of watchmaking technology. Franck Muller Vanguard Gravity uses a new hollow design watch that combines cutting-edge technology with sophisticated craftsmanship. The innovative structure of the movement includes a bridge that has been modified into a bump to give the watch a unique look. The intricate structure and striking lines of this hollowed-out Gravity watch are eye-catching with a vibrant tourbillon frame and cutout fingers for a striking effect.

The texture and shape of case echo the pioneering style of Franck Muller Vanguard Gravity, demonstrating the strong personality of this watch. The master watchmakers of Watchland use their exquisite craftsmanship and use exceptional materials to create this Gravity Skeleton watch that combines clever design and innovative technology.
Franck Muller Vanguard Gravity Skeleton watch is available in a variety of colors and looks unique. It is also the result of top Swiss watchmaking. Aluminum parts are anodized, so you can choose different colors, such as orange, yellow, blue, purple, etc.

As the formal establishment of the Franck Muller watch factory in Genthod, a small town near Geneva, in 1991, to more than 20 years later, it has become one of the most resounding names in the history of timepieces. From perfect breakthrough of appearance to the bold and innovative revolution of complex functions. The outstanding signature watch series has made the Franck Muller watch kingdom and won the brand the reputation of “master of complex functions”.

There are many more success stories to be found. Today we want to feel the brand’s heritage and innovation. The development of the crazy hour watch series by Franck Muller.

Franck Muller Crazy Hours, which has been the subject of endless speculation since its launch because of the confusing arrangement of Arabic numerals on the dial. In 2019, the brand launched Crazy Hours Remember wristwatch, which once let the public see the innovation and strength of Franck Muller. It’s also given Crazy Hours a new lease of life.

In 2018, Crazy Hours, still looks young and fashionable today, has been available for 15 years! To that end, Franck Muller recently held a grand dinner in Singapore. Franck Muller, the watchmaker who founded the eponymous label in 1992 and launched Crazy Hours in 2003.

This does not follow the common sense of the timing, the corresponding activities, nature is also creative. The spacious set transforms into a colorful and fantastic world, where guests can explore five Spaces with Franck Muller Crazy Hours photos in the background and leave amazing images behind.

In addition, the dinner time is also topical, but it fits the theme of the series very well: “lunch” starts at 8:30 PM, “breakfast” at 9:45 PM, and “dinner” starts at 11:00 PM.

When I first saw this watch, it was on the Basel watch show in 2003. If I didn’t witness the real thing with my own eyes, I thought Franck Muller was joking with many watch fans! Because Crazy Hours, the way it’s arranged numerically on the dial, completely destroys the inherent law of the dial!

Time definitely lives up to its name. On the barreled dial, there are still 12 Art Deco Arabic numerals neatly arranged, but the order of the numerals is not from 1 to 12 clockwise. In fact, there is an originality of Franck Muller watchmaker behind. According to the watchmaker Mr. Franck Muller, time is a serious subject, which has an unchangeable and unshakable law. On the other hand, he thinks the time has an interesting side, so he designed the Crazy Hours watch without violating the law of the time.

If you want to know more about this watch, you can find the answer in the next issue of the blog. Of course, smart friends can leave a comment below, we can discuss together.

As a well-known master of the Grandes complex art scene, Franck Muller welcomed more than 2,500 guests at the 29th WPHH at the Geneva Manor in the heart of the Watchland. From January 14th to 18th, in people’s eager anticipation, the brand welcomed the opportunity to showcase its two new buildings. The two new buildings will provide a separate venue for all of its watchmakers, as well as new timepieces, including the innovative and atypical Remember watch.

The watch industry elite gathered here to visit two newly built buildings, where Franck Muller was founded nearly 30 years ago. The project now offers a separate venue for 450 craftsmen and employees to handle every stage of watch production. These two new buildings and an additional 16,000 square meters of floor space highlight the unique character of Watchland. The unique architectural features of Switzerland showcase the success of Maison Franck Muller. The assembly process that was previously set up in Meyrin will be concentrated in the same watch factory. Vartan Sirmakes, CEO of the watch brand, said, “I am very happy to welcome so many people to this special place and share their passion with us”.

The 2,500 guests attending the event will be able to stroll through this beautiful garden and have the opportunity to meet with the branded watchmakers with extensive expertise in two new buildings.

At first glance, Remember’s dial is adorned with traditional Arabic numerals. The time is displayed in a new way, and the hour, minute and second hands turn in a “counterclockwise” direction, breaking the routine. This completely different watch is like a wonderful ability to reversible time and space, leading us into the world of time.

Franck Muller is a masterpiece of bold creativity and craftsmanship. The extraordinary Remember series expresses the magical and precious memory power, which is like extending the beautiful moments infinitely, making fans of watches and watches fascinated. Available in 18k rose gold, white gold, and stainless steel, it is elegant and cute, allowing high-end watch lovers to show their unique style in the inherent timing, and enjoy every minute.

Franck Muller is a brand that is unforgettable. The shape of the barrel, the hollow design, the tourbillon, and the curved dome are all classic elements of it. And it just these details let the brand stand out in many mechanical watches. Because it is a complicated design watch, there is a flaw in the thickness of the watch case. However, Franck Muller ladies’ watch compensates for the shortcomings of the brand. Although the thickness has not changed, it is visually lighter and much thinner.

Today, I mainly share some Franck Muller ladies’ watches in the shape of barrel. And they all have very cute styles, which are very suitable for well-behaved ladies. To challenge the established rules of the fine watch, Franck Muller has launched the Vanguard Heart Skeleton Bucket with its timeless classics feature.

The Franck Muller New Saratoge collection is available in two materials: rose gold and stainless steel. The Vanguard Heart Skeleton Bucket watch combines harmonious design with clever construction. Inspired by a feminine heart-shaped pattern, the dial of this watch perfectly balances its creative design.

Designed and manufactured in-house, it is driven by a manual mechanical movement consisting of 153 parts and set with 23 jewels. The heart-shaped design makes this ingenuity.

All the details of this watch are carefully thought out and fit on the delicate wrist to add a touch of glamour to the wrist. The craftsmanship of this Franck Muller Vanguard Heart Skeleton Bucket watch is to make the heart-shaped pattern an integral part of the mechanical device with a see-through dial, showing all its versatility and movement components.
