The Grand Central Tourbillon is a spectacular new collection, where the Tourbillon is in the spotlight, placed at the center of the timepiece. One of the complexities of the collection, lies in the fact that we had to totally rethink the watch in order to move the Tourbillon from its original position at 6 o’clock to the center of the watch. In addition, Franck Muller designers and watchmakers had to find an innovative way to place the hour and second hands around the Tourbillon cage, highlighting the beauty of the piece.
