Franck Muller’s Crazy Hours Celebrates its 10th Anniversary

crazy hours_Franck Muller is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Crazy Hours, its emblematic and emotional complication. 

In 2003, Franck Muller introduced a totally innovative approach to the very notion of time. This extraordinary model displays numerals in complete disorder, while still keeping perfect time thanks to a jumping hour mechanism. The hour hand jumps to one numeral after the other in the correct order, whereas the minutes hand moves in a conventional way.

The Crazy Hours disrupts our perception of time, sets a new philosophy and proclaims independence from the established order.

The unexpected birth of the Crazy Hours started when Franck was in a magnificent resort in Mauritius. All of his vacation was punctuated by rules and he thought to himself that he hated rules and so wanted to create a watch that had none. From that, the Crazy Hours concept was born.

The Crazy Hours 10th anniversary limited edition includes 74 pieces available in both rose gold and
white gold. Each of the watches features the number “10” entirely set with diamonds. Uniquely for this model, the numerals are polished which gives an elegant mirror effect.
