Franck Muller Vanguard Gravity

Following the success of the Vanguard Collection, Swiss luxury watch maker Franck Muller introduces the new Vanguard Gravity - a true symbol of technological avant-garde, teamed with a sporty approach, combining perfect lines while evoking the remarkable power of the time piece.

A new concept of tourbillon cage is demonstrated by its innovative elliptical shape and structure in aluminium. The bridge and the pillars of a traditional tourbillion have been turned into a magic and harmonious ellipse circle with diameters of 21.2mm and 7.7mm.
Occupying the entire lower side of the dial, the impressive elliptical tourbillon cage, counters all effects of gravity, by making a full rotation every 60 seconds. An eccentric balance of 14mm further characterises this unconventional tourbillon. The remarkable mechanism is emphasised by blue sapphire crystal screens on both sides of the watch.
The rubber on the inside of the strap effortlessly takes the form of a bold wrist and makes this model even more harmonious. The strap comes in a variety of finishes including fabric and croco. They create absolute harmony with the iconic Cintrée Curvex case.

Completely in-house designed and manufactured, the Vanguard Gravity is available in titanium and 18-carat pink or white gold plated, this dynamic collection offers a personalised choice of 6 colourful variants for the bridge.
