Franck Muller’s Crazy Hours marks fifteen years of self-described insanity this year, and the brand is celebrating with a special collection. The new Franck Muller Crazy Hours 15th Anniversary Asia Exclusive offers blue or grey dials with sunburst finish injected with shots of color. The five-minute markers on the watch’s inner flange sport green, red, blue, and black tones complemented by matching leather straps.
Available in forty combinations, the Crazy Hours 15th Anniversary Asia Exclusive comes in stainless steel, stainless steel with diamonds, rose gold, or rose gold with diamonds, and in three sizes.
As a reminder, Franck Muller’s Crazy Hours comprises a jumping hour module and an automatic movement. While the hour hand jumps to point the correct hour numeral, the minute hand revolves round the dial in a traditional 60-minute cycle. Although the hour numerals seem randomly placed, there is a sequence to the ‘crazy’ hours – each subsequent number is placed at an approximately 120-degree arc away from the preceding number.
Prices begin at 5,850 Swiss francs (about $6,262) for ladies’ models and 8,800 Swiss francs (about $9,400) for men’s models.
