Franck Muller’s oversized tonneau-shaped collection is beloved by collectors and appears in countless iterations, including camouflage, skeletonized movements, flying tourbillons and world timers. To reinvigorate its Yachting watches, the brand added a power-reserve indicator in a motif shaped like a ship’s gauge to the dial, which required reworking and redesigning the movement.
Watchmakers took advantage of this opportunity to add even more nautical references both in the movement and on the dial. The bridges of the open-worked, manual-wind, 241-part movement are inspired by anchors and are crafted in sea-blue anodized aluminum.
The seconds indication at 6 o’clock is shaped as a compass rose star with red hand. The 44mm watch features an inner chapter ring with the compass points and degrees listed on it. Water resistant to 30 meters, the watch is finished with a sporty, hand-sewn nylon strap.
Price: $45,400 in 18K rose gold
