Long conferred as the Master of Complications, FRANCK MULLER absolutely does not disappoint with the debut of this haute horlogerie marvel - the Vanguard Yachting Gravity Skeleton. 

At first glance, one is instantly enamoured by the blue futuristic turbine-shaped tourbillon cage, as though privy to witnessing a supernova in the night sky while far at sea.  Within this celestial explosion belies the naval heart of the Vanguard Yachting Gravity Skeleton timepiece. 

Despite its highly skeletonised garb, this majestic maritime-inspired timepiece is certainly no fragile folly.  Its tourbillon escapement revolves at a reduced frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour, enabling the in-house CS-03 SQT calibre to better withstand prolonged nautical knocks and shocks. 


The Vanguard™ Heart Skeleton is a refreshing take on the more staid ladies timepieces for daily hustle and bustle, it springs to life the whimsy and dreamy. 

Seven superimposed hearts are cleverly positioned to spread the love evenly throughout the dial. They come in fully red, white, pink or lilac, and even a multi-coloured version for ladies with more vivid tastes. Upon intensive inspection, the emblazoned three-dimensional hearts seem to float wistfully over a seductively skeletonised mechanical movement.

Its exclusive in-house calibre is manually-wound, and consists of 153 components that have been trimmed down to brandish as much of the inner workings of the timepiece as possible, whilst maintaining the structural integrity of the sound movement structure.  The movement and bridges are then prudently anchored to the sides of the proportioned Vanguard™ case.

The new generation of the Lady Moonphase is highly distinctive, offering technical attributes while affirming a striking and classy style.

The sun-stamped dial dressed with a diamond setting moon phase at 6 o’clock, the elegant curves of the case set with diamonds harmoniously complement the shining moon phase which catches the eye of its owner until the night of full moon.

This new collection pays tribute to women who appreciate the art of watchmaking savoir-faire. The uniqueness of its new dial along with the emblematic numerals emphasizes even more on its ultra-feminine refinement.
