This week luxury watchmaker Franck Muller unveiled three new collections at the World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie. Now in its 22nd year, the WPHH is being held for the first time in Hong Kong, China.
High above the city, Franck Muller presented three collections at the Central Plaza, one of Hong Kong’s most recognizable skyscrapers. Here’s your first look at these new novelties:
The Infinity Sunrise collection is a bold feminine design. The in-house manufactured mother-of-pearl dial is set with pave-diamonds. This collection features a quartz movement in an 18K gold or stainless steel casing.
The latest addition to the Giga Gong Tourbillon collection (which was originally launched in 2011) features a Striking Hour complication. The chime strikes at every hour the number of hours accordingly. A push-button at 4 o’clock turns the chime on and off, with an indicator of this function at 3 o’clock on the dial. The four barrels are paired in series to provide a power reserve of 6 days. Pictured above in an 18K gold casing, this collection is available in two versions – the classic Cintrée Curvex and Round.
The Skeleton collection features Franck Muller’s caliber 1700 in skeleton form. Powered by 2 barrels, this mechanical movement, which was manufactured and decorated in-house, boasts a 7-day power reserve. The skeleton form caliber 1700 is decorated with 21 jewels, and the bridges are hand-chamfered. It will be offered in an 18K gold or stainless steel version in a Round or Cintrée Curvex casing.
