  • Catalogue Essay

    Regarded as one of the most popular brands for manufacturing timepieces in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Franck Muller earned its place in the world of horology via its diverse line up of timepieces in its iconic Curvex case. In the mid 1990s, the firm introduced the Master Banker, a wristwatch featuring three-time zones developed for the busy jetsetter and global businessmen, hence its model name.

    The Master Banker remains in production today with upgraded references. The first timepiece is a beautiful stainless steel Master Banker ref. 2852 MB fitted with a grey cloisonné dial with classic Franck Muller numerals. The second is an elegant 18K yellow gold Master Banker in an unusual round-shaped case fitted with a crafty two-tone sector dial with navy blue Arabic numerals. Both timepieces are equipped with the cal. 2800 MB, a self-winding caliber with a platinum rotor.

  • 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.
