Our Craftsmanship - Dedication to Haute Horlogerie
franck muller is proud to present its craftsmanship campaign that showcases the crafts required to create a timepiece. thanks to its incredible in-house capabilities, the brand can push barriers of watchmaking even further with innovative complications and great technique whilst fully respecting swiss watchmaking tradition.
Making a Movement
the tourbillon perpetual calendar, an empiric complication, is manufactured entirely in-house. beginning with hundreds of technical sheets for all the components, the components are then manufactured, delicately decorated and perfected before being incorporated into this exceptional movement.
Making a Dial
franck muller dials are manufactured entirely in house at our factory located in les bois, in the swiss jura. the artistry and talent behind a franck muller dial is incredible. each dial needs 20 layers of lacquer and requires a drying period of one hour for each layer. finally, the carefully hand painted luminova numerals complete the work of art.
Making a Case
franck muller cases are manufactured entirely in house. they are stamped at our factory in la-chaux-de-fonds and then delivered to watchland in geneva for completion. all cases are artisanally polished by hand. also, diamond cases require an incredible amount of time and mastery to accomplish, particularly with the cintrée curvex where it is very difficult to hand-set the diamonds along its curves.
