The story of how young and energetic people broke through and stood in line with the old and deserved watch companies, forcing the latter to reasonably shake their hand, is as old as time. Such story was also the fact of life for Franck Müller and Wartan Simarkes - founders of the Franck Muller watch company.
In the 1990s, the watchmaking industry had a so-called quartz crisis, caused by the invention of quartz mechanism. Many companies dropped their hands, but two masters working in related industries with ambitious plans for the future resisted this trend and took a bold step. They started making mechanical watches with complications. Looking ahead, I will say that you have an opportunity to buy the world most complicated watch - and it is made by this company.
It all started in a beautiful, secluded country mansion overlooking Lake Leman and Mount Mont Blanc near Geneva. Franck Muller quickly “climbed up” the industrial vertical, trying to be innovative, reactive, sensitive to the needs of society. These qualities along his ability to create a flawless product in a short time, that considered all traditions of Swiss watchmaking helped the company to realize itself. Franck Muller was called the Master of Complications. The above-mentioned world most complicated watch has 36 complications and 1483 details. Just imagine!
Their models indeed have a lot of new, bright, bold – complicated things. Here is, for example, women's watch Double Mystery with two rotating faces, all powdered with colored gems. It has no figures - just marks and a heap of gems on a dazzling white background. And still everything is absolutely legible – this is how reasonably and precisely planned the watch is.
There are Safari models, reminding a zebra with their coloring. There are elegant and large men's watches, emphasizing the strength and infiniteness of opportunities. Not to mention the company's trump card - the most complicated watch with several tourbillions, perpetual calendar and other fantastic mechanisms. Made at the manufactories almost by hand, this watch leaves no one indifferent, amazing with its flawlessness and abundance of details.
