For those new to Franck Muller, we've rounded up some fun facts about the brand that you probably never knew.
Franck Muller is a relatively young brand
Franck Muller is a relatively young manufacturer compared to other giants in the luxury online shop for watch industry. The Franck Muller label was founded in Geneva in 1992 by Muller and Vartan Sirmakes at the age of 29. It quickly rose to fame thanks to its strong in-house expertise in haute horlogerie.
A graduate of the Ecole D'horlogerie De Genève, Muller developed a keen interest in all things mechanical. Not surprisingly, he later devoted his career to making highly complicated watches. After working as a restorer for auction houses and luxury watch brands for many years, Muller started making mechanical watches under his own name.
In 1991, he met Sirmakes, a watchmaking enthusiast and casemaker. Soon after, Müller asked him to make and design a case for his new movement. This started a storied partnership that saw some of the most innovative watch complications in watchmaking history.
Franck Muller known as the "Master of Complications"
Muller realized early in his career that there was a need for unique and complicated watches. Therefore, he decided to regularly manufacture complications that the world has never seen before. These complications are now called "world premieres".
Since 1986, Muller has been creating innovative, handcrafted highly complex watches that challenge a conservative industry that values tradition over innovation. Case in point: he created a tourbillon visible from the front - a first in watchmaking history.Replica FRANCK MULLER Vanguard
In 1986 and 1987, Muller introduced the tourbillon with jumping time function and the tourbillon with minute repeater function respectively. In the same way, he launched an inverted tourbillon perpetual calendar with a minute repeater in 1989.

Franck Muller watches with unique shapes
Mentions of Franck Muller and the Cintrée Curvex - its most iconic shape - always come to mind. From the curved case and distinctive silhouette to the fun and unique design of the numerals, Cintrée Curvex watches are entirely Franck Muller.
In an era when round and rectangular watches dominated the market, Franck Muller introduced a rather odd tonneau case and curved case. At that moment, the unique identity of the brand was born.
Similarly, the dial of the Cintrée Curvex watch is equally exquisite. The curves had to fit perfectly to the shape of the case without compromising detail and craftsmanship. In addition, Franck Muller also launched dials in bright colors such as royal blue.
Its distinguished Cintrée Curvex timepieces include Casablanca, Vanguard, Heart to Heart, Croco Collections and Master Banker.replica Patek Philippe Watches
