Franck Muller unveils the Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton
Featuring a skeleton movement, this timepiece reveals openworked black bridges and red aluminum indicators that allows to observe one of the most beautiful mechanism.
This triple axis tourbillon corrects the force of gravity in all positions, contrary to a classic tourbillon which only compensates it when the wristwatch is in a vertical position. This complex system of carriages is a technical marvel and is the result of one of the most complex creations in Haute Horlogerie.
Dominating the lower half of the movement, the triple axis tourbillon slowly turns through the one-hour, eight-minute and 60-second cycles of its respective three carriages. This complex mechanism makes the Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton a wonder of precision and above all a masterpiece of micromechanics.
Power flows from the gear train through all three carriages to activate the balance wheel five times each second. As the Revolution 3 has three carriages, the gear train has significant resistance to overcome. So as to provide an abundance of energy to drive this triple axis tourbillon, the movement was given a massive 10 days of power reserve. Furthermore, there are two retrograde indications at 4 and 8 o’clock for the progression of the eight-minute carriage and the 60-second carriage.
Housed for the first time in a Vanguard case, this timepiece features a unique sapphire dome on the front and back of the watch, allowing to further highlight the magnificent triple axis tourbillon.
The Vanguard case, made of grade-2 titanium, is treated with black PVD coating. The strap, made of red Alcantara®, effortlessly takes the shape of the wrist and perfectly complements the red decorations on the movement and the Vanguard case.
Wholly designed and manufactured in-house, the futuristic design of the Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton is a mechanical timepiece showcasing the know-how Franck Muller manufacture.
The new Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton comes with Franck Muller’s 5-year tourbillon warranty and is delivered in a very special box with an automated opening system.
