  • Catalogue Essay

    Franck Muller's Grand Complication Imperial Tourbillon features an exposed dial that allows us to marvel at the tourbillon complication in motion. The curved, tonneau shaped case compliments the mechanism, and rests beautifully on the wrist.

    When viewing examples such as the present watch, it comes as no surprise that Franck Muller is best known as "Master of Complications".

  • Artist Biography

    Franck Muller

    Swiss • 1991

    Specializing in top-quality timepieces, Swiss watchmaking company Franck Muller was founded in 1991 in Geneva. The company was named after watchmaker Franck Muller, also known as the "Master of Complications," and Vartan Sirmakes, Co-Founder and CEO of the Franck Muller Group. Shortly after graduating from watchmaking school in the 1980s, Muller was among the first to create his own tourbillon wristwatch, along with world-renowned brands Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin.

    In addition to Muller's fine craftsmanship and intricate complications, the brand is often recognized for its modern designs and colorful flare. To date, the brand's notable lines are the Curvex, Crazy Hours, Casablanca, Conquistador, Long Island and Aeternitas, as well as Revolution2 and Revolution3.
