An emblematic example of feminine elegance, the Franck Muller Vanguard Rose Skeleton is sure to bring out the hopeless romantic in anyone. After all, what’s not to love when you’re presented with a stunning combination of delicate roses and exquisite diamonds. This timepiece features roses and leaves that appear to grow organically out of the skeletonised bridges on the front and back, culminating in a visual delight that highlights the brand’s iconic style and timeless design aesthetic.
Intricately skeletonised, the proprietary in-house 1540 VS15 calibre is manually wound and has a generous power reserve of 4 days. Its 156 parts have been pared down to showcase as much of the inner workings as possible, inviting the wearer to admire the sophisticated blend of design and function: The roses on the openwork dial are painstakingly hand-painted by a master enameller, and are not only beautiful, but also necessary for the watch’s mechanism. Acting as bridges and plates, the precious petals enhance the structural integrity of the entire movement, which has been endued with several luxe treatments such as satin finishing, circular graining and hand-chamfering.
The modern yet refined timepiece graces the wrist of its wearer with elegance and snugness, owing to its slim profile, curved case back and supple alligator strap. A perfect blend of the raw beauty of nature and the brand’s technical prowess, the romantic horological bouquet that is the Vanguard™ Rose Skeleton is available in a wide array of colours, different precious metals, as well as in the trademark colour dreams combination.
