Crazy Hours: Luxury Watches from Franck Muller
Based in Geneva, Switzerland, Franck Muller is a brand that constantly pushes the boundaries of watchmaking. This watchmakers effortlessly combine innovative complications and playful techniques to create incredible timepieces while respecting Swiss watchmaking traditions. And The Crazy Hours collection is no exception.
Features of the Crazy Hours Watches by Franck Muller
The first thing you’ll notice about these watches — besides their incredible aesthetic — is that the order of the numerals on the watch-face aren’t arranged in the usual order. This adventurous approach was pioneered by the watchmaker in 2003 and continues to inspire to this day. However incredible the design may be, it might make you question how you’ll tell the time, but this is where the magic lies.
How Do You Tell the Time with a Franck Muller Crazy Hours Watch?
While only numerals one and 10 are in the traditional order, this collection features a clever and unique mechanical movement designed to capture your imagination. At every hour, the hour hand will cleverly jump to the correct position to tell you the correct time.
This can create great anticipation approaching the 59th-minute of each hour, right before executing the fantastic, highly pleasing movement. You’ll never be left in the dark, either, as each watch features luminescent watch hands that will easily tell the time, even at night.
This fun movement doesn’t sacrifice functionality, either. To tell the time, simply take note of the position of the hour hand. It’ll always be facing the correct numeral, even though these numerals don’t appear in the traditional chronological order.
While the hour hand will always jump to the correct hour, the minute hand follows the usual 60-minute cycle, avoiding unnecessary confusion yet still delivering an exciting experience for the wearer, as well as any intrigued onlookers. No matter the occasion, a Crazy Hours timepiece will be a guaranteed conversation starter and is far from a gimmick — although we’re sure that the miraculous movements will make for an excellent party piece.
How Much Does a Franck Muller Watch Cost?
The Crazy Hours collection is centred around the unmistakable V45 Vanguard shape in brushed steel and brushed titanium, all of which are available for under £20,000. At Frost of London, we understand that you want your watch to be unique, which is why we stock several variations of the Crazy Hours watch in the quintessential V45 styling.
