Franck Muller: The Vanguard™ Slim Skeleton
The Vanguard™ Slim Skeleton asserts its personality and remarkably balanced proportions through its graceful slimmer case (9,1 millimetres). The master watchmakers have once again achieved a work of art by curtailing the case thickness to a minimum while conserving its character, accuracy and technical features.
Furthermore, the watchmakers have also rethought a unique skeleton movement, manufactured in-house, and dedicated to the Vanguard™ Slim Skeleton collection. The slim movement benefits from an automatic winding and 38 hours of power reserve.
The skeleton movement, in which all the components are manufactured and hand-polished in-house, offers the possibility of highlighting the internal architecture of the timepiece and the know-how of the master watchmakers.
Franck Muller’s distinctive numerals are almost levitating above this skeleton movement, allowing a stunning transparency. Delicate to manufacture, the dials are carefully crafted in-house at the Franck Muller’s Dial Manufacture in Les Bois, Jura. The numerals on the openworked skeleton dial require meticulous attention to details, which is a challenge to our dial makers and diamond setting experts.
The Vanguard™ Slim Skeleton is available in a 41 millimetres or 37 millimetres case size, in rose gold, white gold, stainless steel and titanium. Its curved case and numerals can be hand-set with white or black round brilliant diamonds.
This collection reflects the craftsmanship that Franck Muller has been perpetuating for years thanks to the exquisite design of the skeleton movement and the design of the case of the Vanguard™ Slim Skeleton.
