Franck Muller Vanguard Racing Red 45 mm ref. V45 SC DT RCG AC ER – NEW

6,599 

Franck Muller might be one of the younger brands in the world of Haute Horlogerie, but it has already earned itself a fair bit of clout. When watchmaker Franck Muller and case maker Vartan Sirmakes started their company in 1991, the two men agreed it would specialize in watches that render historical complications in modern and spectacular ways, and they have done precisely so. Judging by the exciting designs that they have been coming up with, the aesthetic side of their work is no less important to the duo.

The watch on offer here – the appropriately named Vanguard – makes some of the best use of the brand’s so-dubbed Curvex architecture to date. The steel case’s smooth finish is a wonderful compliment to the ergonomic profile, but the dial loudly contrasts both.
By incorporating 3-dimensional black numerals separated from the black backdrop by white borders, it overpowers the sleek case in a way that couldn’t possibly be accurately conveyed with words. Luckily, our photos can. They also showcase the high-contrast, almost comic book look that the red components and detailing contribute. Sir Sirmakes (sorry, couldn’t resist) has decided to go with the brand-typical brushed caseback instead of the transparent one, and it does perhaps seem like the right choice. Protected by it, the cal. FM 2800 ticks charmingly away.

Our offering is brand new and comes in a full set of boxes and papers.

Covered by a limited warranty of 2 years, starting on the date of purchase.
