This year is a turbulent year, and it doesn’t seem to get better soon. Thankfully, Franck Muller is here to make the days of April easier with its new Vanguard Racing Skeleton.
The unique design of this watch draws inspiration from the world of motorsport, especially Formula One. The case is wrapped in carbon fiber and the case is a smooth polymer. In it, you will find an inner ring with black and white minute tracks and an inner ring similar to a racing circuit, decorated in red and white.
It is also worth noting that female counterparts are equally good.
Franck Muller (Franck Muller) Vanguard Racing Skeleton is a skeleton watch. Its FM 2800-DT conventional movement shows the internal organs, machinery and delicate structure that many enthusiasts like. It is also fixed to the case by four three-side clips, which are located under the elongated indexes of 1, 5, 7, and 11.
Another design element that Franck Muller is proud of is the skeletonized date dial. It only shows the bold, angular outline of a single number. The smoky sapphire crystal is at its center, and represents a novel 60-second counter subdial.
Turn the watch over and you can see the bridge shape and engraving of its movement, which is finished in 24 carat gold. It is also coated with PVD to integrate with the overall design. Franck Muller ended the watch with a black rubber strap that already had a layer of matte suede composite material. This is the same material used in F1 racing bucket seats. The band is followed by two red stitches, giving a sense of color and movement.
Franck Muller’s growing Vanguard series contains a bold spirit of adventure. At the beginning of the current revival of mechanical watches, Franck Muller launched the Cintrée Curvex case in 1992. Soon after, as Cintrée Curvex became one of the most recognized cases in modern times, the obvious curve of the barrel-shaped case can be held by the wrist all over the world.
More than 20 years later, in 2013, Franck Muller launched the Vanguard series as the sports successor to the heritage of Cintrée Curvex. The Vanguard shared the curved shape of its predecessor, but it enlarged the original proportions of the case 44 mm wide and nearly 54 mm high. Boldly without hesitation, the design is perfectly calibrated for a personality that exceeds reality.

One of the most unconventional members of the Vanguard family also happens to be the latest-Vanguard Gravity Skeleton tourbillon. The Franck Muller launched this year makes full use of the extra space of the case, highlights the oversized tourbillon, and turns the dial into a dynamic sculpture that cannot be ignored.
In the “gravity skeleton”, the avant-garde design of the tourbillon includes a balance wheel and a spring that is not aligned with the center axis of the tourbillon cage. Instead, they are off-center, which causes the mechanism to rotate every 60 seconds to have a unique elliptical orbit.
The engineering required to perfect this high-level design is impressive, but the technical achievements can be further improved by a simple method. Using open space as a design element helps to focus on the inherent beauty of the skeletonized movement. Its bridges have been greatly reduced, leaving behind the thin metal limbs that constitute the manual winding movement.
Here, the gravity skeleton tourbillon adopts an invisible appearance, which is due to the black PVD coating on the bridge and titanium case. But what really inspires the design is the contrast between these dark elements and the colorful tourbillon cage and matching hands, which have a variety of colors.
Know all angles
Franck Muller continues to explore the charm of the skeleton movement through another member of the Pioneer series: a 7-day power reserve skeleton. The company has previously released a 7-day power reserve in its Cintrée Curvex and Round enclosures. In these versions, the design draws inspiration from traditional watchmaking, especially the organic and gorgeous appearance of the skeleton bridge. However, in Vanguard, the design uses industrial edges, placing the sharp angles and straight lines of the bridge side by side to guide the viewer’s eyes to the center of the watch. Round components are gathered near the center, and round elements such as the balance wheel and the barrel make the appearance softer.
The manual winding movement of the imitation watches is manufactured in-house and cleverly integrated into the iconic Vanguard case, which is available in five different materials: white gold, rose gold, stainless steel, carbon and titanium.
After Franck Muller launched Grande Date this year, he launched another watch for the Vanguard series. The movement is not skeletonized, but because there is no dial, it can still be displayed. This exposes various parts of the automatic movement, which are decorated with traditional Geneva corrugated patterns to present an exquisite appearance. In addition, the open design also makes the numbered wheels that make up the complex functions of the watch more noticeable.
You can also see the internal functions of the chronograph. When you press the button on the side of the case to stop, start and reset the timer function, these functions will take effect. In operation, the chronograph’s three o’clock dial clocks minutes, while the red pointed central hand counts the second hand.
In addition to these professional timepieces, the Vanguard series also offers watches for men and women, ranging from basic pure hour hand models to tourbillon watches.
There is no doubt that this version of Lady Vanguard Color Dreams is not inferior. The sparkling rose gold case is lined with diamonds and framed on a white dial decorated with undulating guilloche patterns. Raised and slender Arabic numerals-the symbol of the Vanguard series-with bright and cheerful colors of rainbow colors, Franck Muller (Franck Muller) called it “the dream of color”. The chic appearance is powered by a quartz movement and can run continuously for more than a year without winding, which is a perfect example of convenient grab and take. The Lady Vanguard series features a case made of steel, white gold or rose gold.
The latest member of the Vanguard series is also one of its most well-known brands. The yacht series adopts a fun sailing feel, thanks to the wind rose design on each dial. Part of the inspiration for this navy pattern comes from the Franck Muller yacht, which was produced by the Italian Sea Group for watch companies in 2015.
The Vanguard Yachting series includes multiple chronograph complications, from date and chronograph to tourbillon. Because Franck Muller pays great attention to variety, each model is available in stainless steel, rose gold or white gold cases.
It is often said that luck tends to be bold. It is easy to become Vanguard’s slogan, this is a series of fake watches for sale that are not afraid to use the power of personality.
