Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex 25th Anniversary Mechanical Automatic Watch

Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex 25th Anniversary Mechanical Automatic Watch



To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its founding, the brand has chosen to introduce a special edition of an iconic model showcasing Franck Muller’s creative boldness: the Cintrée Curvex™ watch.
Launched in the early 1990s, it laid a new milestone in contemporary history by introducing a tonneau-shaped case with an unprecedented curving architecture, creating a 3D effect typical of the Franck Muller style.

For this anniversary edition, the case sets the stage for the famous baroque-inspired numerals, another emblematic brand signature. They are first engraved into the gold case and then coated with ceramic before being reworked to reveal fascinating relief effects.
The enamel dial also bearing these numerals bears a “25th anniversary” logo, while a Manufacture-made movement sets the pace for this special edition.
