Rolls-Royce Wraith inspired by Franck Muller´s Crazy Hours
The individual personality of both brands will materialize in a Bespoke Black Badge collection inspired by Franck Muller’s famous “Crazy Hours”. Today, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Geneva has published design sketches which hint towards Wraith “Crazy Numbers”.
Bespoke is Rolls-Royce, the programme of the British car manufacturer allows customers to make their motor car as unique as their own fingerprint.
From the colour selection to unique details, the style of “Wraith Crazy Numbers” will reflect the design of Frank Muller’s iconic Crazy Hours. The watchmaker’s audacious collection will leave its mark on Wraith´s exterior and interior – all set to send its passengers on a magical journey.
The motor car comes in a Velvet Sparkle exterior finish, with a Twin- Coachline motif in Silver/Cobalto Blue pointing towards the «numbers» theme. The interior presents perfect harmony with the main colour Cobalto Blue and refers to the theme with a dashboard fascia and embroidered numbers on the rear console. Interior highlight is the Starlight Headliner depicting the “Crazy Hours” watch face. The details follow the Rolls-Royce traditions and represent a decent sense of personal style.
For this partnership, Franck Muller selected the Crazy Hours™ complication. The collection combines boldness, creativity and poetry with the exceptional Haute Horlogerie knowhow of Franck Muller.
To celebrate the masterpiece car, Franck Muller is watchmaking a unique Crazy Hours™ collection inspired by the world of Rolls-Royce. The collection will show Franck Muller numbers in the well-known unconventional order, typical of the Crazy Hours timepieces.
The dial displays the color codes of the car and its sophisticated details that can be found on dashboards and Rolls-Royce seats’. The self-winding mechanical movement offers 42 hours of power reserve. Thanks to its patented Crazy Hours mechanism, the collection offers a new reading of time. The central hour hand literally jumps from the numerals one to twelve placed atypically on the dial, as such, after every 60 minutes, the hour hand would jump to the next correct number. Meanwhile, the minute hand follows a conventional 60-minute cycle revolving around the dial.
