    WPHH 2014: New Franck Muller collections

    The 24th edition of the World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie (WPHH) was hosted again at Watchland in Genthod (Geneva) from January 19th to 24th 2014, sparking keen interest from watch connoisseurs worldwide.

    For six days, a school of some 2’500 watch aficionados, professionals and media from across the globe roamed the more than 800 square metres of floor space enjoying the fruits of the labours of the nine brands of the group - Franck Muller Jewellery, Pierre Kunz, ECW, Rodolphe, Barthelay, Backes & Strauss, Martin Braun, Pierre Michel Golay, Smalto Timepieces along with their partners Cvstos and Roberto Cavalli.

    Founded in 1991 by Franck Muller, in partnership with the Haute Horlogerie specialist Vartan Sirmakes, the Franck Muller brand has become a key luxury timepiece classic imbued with technical know-how and innovative designs. The company holds more than 50 patents, 40 exclusive shops around the world and 7 production sites in Switzerland. These were some of the new watches on show.

    Also on show this year at WPHH was the Giga Gong Tourbillon. The chime strikes at every hour the number of hours accordingly. A push-button at 4 o’clock turns the chime on and off, with an indicator of this function at 3 o’clock on the dial. The four barrels are paired in series to provide a power reserve of 6 days.

    The new 7 days Power Reserve Skeleton line features detailed craftsmanship and pioneering mechanism. The Skeleton collection features Franck Muller’s calibre 1700 in skeleton form. Powered by 2 barrels, this mechanical movement, which was manufactured and decorated in-house, boasts a 7-day power reserve. The skeleton form calibre 1700 is decorated with 21 jewels, and the bridges are hand-chamfered. It will be offered in an 18K gold or stainless steel version in a Round or Cintrée Curvex casing.

    The first looks like it might be decent looking...hard to tell from the photo. The last one is nice if one likes that sort of thing. As for the others, well, even a blind dog sometimes finds a bone.

    All the best.
