Franck Muller 7 Days Power Reserve Skeleton

The 7 days Power Reserve is an undeniable Franck Muller classic timepiece that boasts detailed craftsmanship and pioneering mechanism. The brand now unveils a new skeleton avatar of this model at WPHH Geneva 2015.
The uniqueness of this skeletonized collection is the caliber 1740 that features a generous 7 days Power reserve. Powered by 2 barrels, this mechanical movement is precisely designed, manufactured and decorated in-house. The bridges are hand-chamfered, an essential element of decoration in Haute Horlogerie, which is the result of a long and meticulous work.
After months of dedication, Franck Muller has adapted the caliber 1700 into a skeleton form that reveals a highly technical mechanism and perfect styling. This new caliber 1740 combines sound aesthetics and immaculate precision. This house-crafted treasure is adorned by 21 jewels. It is further offered in an 18-carat gold or stainless steel version in a Round or Cintrée Curvex casing.
