Franck Muller’s latest creation is the new, a limited edition produced in collaboration with the Dutch artist who also gives the watch its name.
This exclusive edition of 50 pieces that try to express the worlds of Franck Muller (FM) and Loes Van Delf (LVD), is well reflected in the watch dial that reveals the result when art and time come together.
The dial is designed with the artist’s beloved character ‘PjiPje’ whose 26 different colours from the artist’s original work have been carefully transposed one by one onto the watch’s screen and blend with FM’s ‘Color Dream Numerals’. On the dial, we can also find a black stepped inner bezel with hour markers and Arabic numerals in white, the brand inscriptions with FM at noon and LVD at 6 o’clock, and finally blackened Daphine hands skeletonized and filled with luminescent material.
On the outside, the watch wears a Vanguard titanium case measuring 43mm by 53mm and 9.30 mm thick that comes with a black PVD finish, fluted crown at 3 o’clock, sapphire crystal on both sides and 30m water resistance.
It is powered by the 191-component MVT FM 2536-SC automatic movement, which runs at 28,800 Vph and offers up to 42 hours of power reserve. Decorated with Côtes de Genève on the bridges and rotor it can be admired through the open case back which comes engraved with individual numbering.
The watch, attached to a black alligator leather strap, is accompanied by a 90cm by 90cm art print signed by the artist.
