Franck Muller CINTREE CURVEX™ 25th Anniversary

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the manufacture, Swiss luxury watch brand Franck Muller unveils a special edition that pays tribute to its iconic shape, the Cintrée Curvex™. Released in the early 90’s, the Cintrée Curvex revolutionised the watchmaking trends with its tonneau shape.

The harmonious curves of the case are adorned with the iconic, slender and distinctive relief numerals. The numerals are first engraved on the case and then covered with ceramic to finally be re-machined to let the numerals appear. This new model specially designed to celebrate this milestone displays the brand signature appliqué numerals as well as the 25th anniversary logo of the brand on an enamel dial.
Inside, beats the in-house FM0800 Automatic movement, which powers the Hour and minute indications.
