Renowned horologist Franck Muller showcases the Vanguard “Slim Skeleton,” an exquisite timepiece offering a fusion of slender craftsmanship and iconic design. This latest creation, available in two case sizes and a remarkable array of 11 iterations, exemplifies Muller’s dedication to sophistication and precision.
At the core of the Vanguard Slim Skeleton lies a remarkably thin case, measuring a mere 9.1 millimeters in thickness. This engineering marvel is a testament to Franck Muller’s unwavering pursuit of design excellence while upholding the renowned precision and functionality synonymous with their timepieces. The reduction in case thickness is a feat achieved without compromising the watch’s distinctive character, accuracy, or technical prowess.
The timepiece introduces a specially crafted skeleton movement, an exclusive creation tailored for the Vanguard Slim Skeleton collection. Despite its slender profile, this in-house movement boasts automatic winding and an impressive power reserve of 38 hours. The skeletal design provides a captivating view of the watch’s intricate inner workings, showcasing its architectural finesse.
A standout feature of the Vanguard Slim Skeleton is the illusionary positioning of Franck Muller’s signature numerals, seemingly hovering above the skeleton movement. This design imparts a sense of depth and transparency to the dial. The open-worked skeleton dial and precision-setting of numerals are meticulously executed at Franck Muller’s Dial Manufacture in Les Bois, Jura, demanding an extraordinary level of skill, particularly in the diamond-setting process.
Available in two sizes, 41 millimeters and 37 millimeters, customers can indulge in a selection of materials, including rose gold, white gold, stainless steel, and titanium. The curved case and numerals offer a personalized touch, with the option of hand-setting either white or black round brilliant diamonds, elevating the timepiece to a realm of luxury. In total, there are 11 distinctive iterations to choose from.
For those seeking the allure of the Vanguard Slim Skeleton, price, and availability details are discreetly unveiled upon request through Franck Muller’s official site, inviting enthusiasts to explore the epitome of horological craftsmanship.
