The latest timepiece in the Franck Muller Yachting Collection, released this month, is a replica of the curves and shapes of the luxury yacht ‘Franck Muller 55’. Baroque Access finds out all the details
The Franck Muller Yachting Collection was first launched in 2015 to pay tribute to yachting and the sea as part of a collaboration with the Italian Sea Group to build a range of luxury super yachts. Each watch in the collection is adorned with nautical details – and the latest timepiece, which replicates the curves and shapes of the luxury yacht ‘Franck Muller 55’, is no exception. It’s an avante garde timepiece combining global precision and yachting sport design that replicates the curves and shapes of the luxury yacht and represents fine craftsmanship and sleek design.
This latest timepiece is based on the Vanguard collection, part of the Franck Muller Yachting Collection. The timepieces in this collection include the Vanguard Pixel, the Vanguard Glacier and the Vanguard Cobra, each individual and unique, offering a tribute in its own way to the wonder and beauty of the world of the ocean.
Franck Muller is renowned as a Master of Complications, and this latest masterpiece underscores this. It’s a new creative vision of time with an emphasis on nautical details. The Yachting watch features numerous seafaring elements, including a deep blue dial and a wind rose also on the dial. The distinct Vanguard Roman numerals on the dial perfectly complement its design and enhance its legibility.
The watch is available with either an automatic or mechanical movement, and is available in a choice of titanium, 18-karat gold or stainless steel, with a rubber and alligator strap with either blue or white stitches. The side of each case features a drawing of the Franck Muller 55 yacht, adding a signature touch to the timepiece.
There are four variants of the watch – classic, chronograph, tourbillon and Gravity tourbillon. This is the perfect sporty watch for those men who own their own yacht, as these two worlds both share elegance and the same technical features.
