Since the 1980s, Franck Muller has become a name synonymouswith beautiful finishing and unique designs. Throughout Haute Horlogerie and high complications, Muller has tied hisname to a brand that has established a series of exceptional timepieces that, whileoriginally avant-garde, have become embraced and often copied.
From its creation, the Cintrée Curvex case was veryunique. Indeed, the Haute Horlogerie wasbound by tradition and consequently not very open to innovation, especially interms of design. At the time, there wereplenty of round watches and perhaps a few rectangular ones, but there wasnothing like Franck Muller’s Curvex. Soit was a bold move to introduce, in 1992, something previously nonexistent onthe market; a tonneau curved body in 3 dimensions involving great technicaldifficulties in manufacturing.
Thus, Franck Muller watches became easily identifiable dueto their tonneau shape that is commonly recognized as the brand’s mostsignificant silhouette.
For the brand, it quickly became a great success and a wayto express its unique identity, assert its DNA and demonstrate its know-how incase manufacturing.
Similarly, Franck Muller timepieces became instantlyrecognizable for their unique and beautiful numeral design. The dials on our Cintrée Curvex models arealso very complex to produce. Forexample, they must be perfectly curved to follow the shape of the case, butmust still have the best guilloche, printing quality and precision. Introducing dials in gorgeous vibrant colorssuch as royal blue was also initiated by Franck Muller and showed all thehallmark of a classic Franck Muller design.
With its elegant cases, stunning dials and highly-complexmovements, Franck Muller is very proud of all its timepieces. They really are greatexamples of clean and sober designs that have timeless elegance.
