Introduction

Founded in 1992 by Franck Muller and Vartan Sirmakes and known as the "Master of Complications," Franck Muller, the brand, has grown to become synonymous with complex microengineering, original whacky designs, and incredible attention to detail. While tonneau-shaped cases and colorful dials dominate Franck Muller's modern aesthetic, their earlier watches were more traditional round timepieces that featured somewhat classic design motifs, much like this Franck Muller Chronograph ref. 7002CC. By drawing inspirationm from those earlier years of the brand and the vintage era of watchmaking as a whole, it boasts a traditional reverse-panda black and silver dial complete with applied Roman hour markers and concentric guilloche engraved silver subdials. Featuring blued steel hands and numerals with red and white inscriptions atop its silver and black dial, this example successfully blends a luxurious construction with a colorful dial as a tasteful homage to Franck Muller’s earlier years and the vintage ear from which it is inspired by. Measuring 42mm and constructed from 18kt yellow gold, this example’s entirely polished case further magnifies the wonderfully colorful and ornate dial.
