When it comes to Franck Muller watches you know that you’re getting a totally unique style, distinct from anything else on the market, you know you’re getting a radical design, and complicated mechanisms created by master craftsmen. What started out as a business restoring watches has gone on to become one of the most recognisable brands in the world, and the Cintree Curvex stands out as one of the most eye-catching and conversation-dominating timepieces they have ever made.
The History of Franck Muller Cintree Curvex Watches
Franck Muller’s lifelong love affair with watches began back in 1973, when, at only 15 he joined a watchmaking school in Geneva. Upon graduating from the school, Franck Muller began working with the repair of luxury watches. Fixing up complicated pieces for esteemed individuals and museums. But repairing watches wasn’t to be Franck Muller’s legacy.
While working in repairs, Franck Muller began to find himself becoming infatuated by the inner workings of the watches he was fixing, about the mechanisms and what goes into these works of art. He became fascinated with the idea of producing his own timepieces — in his own name.
Muller was one of the innovators of preserving the traditional elements of watchmaking, forging his own path in spite of the electric revolution in the industry.
In the 21st Century, the Franck Muller brand became synonymous with the famous tonneau shape, with its curved sapphire, and often unique, occasionally mischievous dials.
The Cintree Curvex represents the culmination of everything Franck Muller has done in the past 50 years. From its inception in 1992, the Cintree Curvex stood out. In a world of round and rectangular cases, the classic Franck Muller tonneau case stood out from the crowd.
The silhouette of the Cintree Curvex has become iconic for the watchmaker. It allowed Franck Muller to forge its own identity and create a unique brand identity that drew people in.
Always attracting the eye are the numerals on each and every Cintree Curvex. From the subtle elegance of the Arabic numerals of the Cintrée Curvex Master Imperial Tourbillon, to the unique, ‘see it to believe it’ face of the Crazy Hours.
With their exquisitely crafted cases and dials, their beautiful dials, and mastercrafted movements, the Franck Muller Cintree Curvex collection stands out as a best-in-class for this esteemed watchmaker.
Pieces like the Cintrée Curvex Master Imperial Tourbillon with its exceptional finish, platinum case, and expertly hand-engraved arms, and the ever-unique Cintree Curvex Time to Remember collection with its time-bending reverse face. No matter which model you get, with a Franck Muller Cintree Curvex you are guaranteed to stand out.
Unique From Top to Bottom
Never one to stand on ceremony, with every watch released under the name of Franck Muller, you are guaranteed unquantifiable uniqueness. None represent this more than The Crazy Hours. This collection is one of the most distinctive timepieces ever released. It is truly one of a kind.
The uniqueness of the Crazy Hours is immediately clear upon closer inspection – the numerals on the dial aren’t in the right order. They flow in an unusual order, so how do you read the time? Well, very easily, and very intelligently.
Watches in this collection feature a mechanical movement that allows the hour hand to hop from one hour to the next, all in the correct order, all while the minute hand follows around in a more traditional manner.
This blending of stylish uniqueness and out of this world craftsmanship represent Franck Muller in a way that possibly no other timepiece represents its brand.
In an industry dominated by tradition – with the release of the original Cintree Curvex, Franck Muller knew he would turn heads, and he certainly did, and many never turned back.
Every Cintree Curvex is uniquely Franck Muller. The tonneau shape and curved body were instantly iconic in a time when nothing else was even close.
The tonneau shape means that the dials on Cintree Curvex watches must be just as perfect, the curve must be flawless to account for the unique shape of the case. To complement the perfect craftsmanship of the Cintree Curvex, Franck Muller offers a variety of immediately distinct dial colours.
