Revealing the soul of its mechanism through the transparency of its sapphire case, the new Vanguard™ Skeleton Sapphire showcases its movement to the fullest.
Innovation and expertise coupled with Haute Horlogerie traditions has enabled Franck Muller® to design a one-of-a-kind timepiece – the Vanguard™ Skeleton Sapphire, thus achieving an unprecedented achievement. Manufacturing a sapphire watch case of this kind requires a high degree of hand-finishing, advanced skills and a unique savoir-faire. The case, crafted from a single sapphire crystal block, calls upon a high level of expertise is to highlight the graphic structure of the tourbillion. It takes no less than two months to machine the case and then two more to accomplish the polishing. The high-tech transparent tonneau watch case is emphasised by the architectural design of the white PVD skeleton dial, hand-chamfered to perfection. The perfectly integrated transparent strap attached to the glass case is totally invisible so that the skin of the wrist can be seen through it.
Taking a new direction with its minimalist style, the Vanguard Skeleton Sapphire offers a full visual access to its in-house manufactured movement.
