  • Catalogue Essay

    Cased in the noblest of all metals, this heavy chronograph wristwatch features two dials. While the front displays three subsidiary registers, the reverse also displays tachymetre, telemetre and pulsations scales which is operated by the chronograph buttons. Further distinguishing the present watch is the case number '0', suggesting it is the very first example produced.

    This watch is also notably a very early example, which is particularly collectible. It was manufactured only one year after Franck Muller first launched his namesake brand.

  • 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.
