  • Catalogue Essay

    With a specific aim to contemporize the classic art deco style look that the firm has embraced since its establishment in 1992, Franck Muller introduced the Vanguard line in 2016 featuring an oversized curvex style case released in various metals and materials including carbon.

    With an all-black appeal, the present Franck Muller Vanguard features a case composed of black carbon with an innovative wavy finish on the surface. Complimented further by its newly designed Kevlar embossed rubber strap, the watch exudes a sporty appeal. Only worn a handful of times, the present example is complete with its full set of accessories.

  • 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.
