2014 Franck Muller Classique Chronograph 18K WG (Ref. 7000CC) W/ Box & Papers

$ 12,000

As polarizing as the brand may be today, it's hard not to be captivated by the early works from Franck Muller, also known as "The Master of Complications". Franck Muller began his career at the age of 15 when he enrolled in the Watchmaking School of Geneva, and would later go on to do high-end independent restoration and repair work for pocket watches and wristwatches for The Patek Philippe Collection as well as individual collectors and auction houses. During this time Franck Muller amassed an incredible knowledge and appreciation for complicated timepieces, which led him to create the first "exposed" tourbillon watch, a feat never before accomplished. In 1991, the Franck Muller brand was born. Today, the early and more traditional works from the brand remain celebrated for the innovative interpretation of classically designed, and truly beautiful timepieces.

The Classique model is the most traditional design to come from the Franck Muller brand and was a versatile platform from which some of the most iconic and complicated, or simple timepieces were produced. The ref. 7000CC chronograph is a beautiful display of the elegance and quality from the brand, featuring a refined yet classic 39mm 18K white gold case and a sophisticated dial with applied blue markers and hands. Powering this watch is a modified Valjoux Cal. 7750 automatic chronograph movement that features the Franck Muller signature platinum rotor.
