Discover the Franck Muller Vanguard Collection

The highly functional and astonishingly avant-garde Franck Muller Vanguard is not only offered in precious metals like rose gold and white gold, but collectors can also find pieces in other interesting materials like bronze, carbon, and titanium. Vanguard timepieces feature impressive tourbillon and chronograph complications, too. In fact, the collection is so expansive that it is divided into ten sub-collections including Skeleton, Yachting, Gravity, Classical, Tourbillon, Grande Date, Camouflage, Golf, Master Banker, and Master Banker Skeleton. Explore a few models that stand out from this comprehensive collection.

Vanguard 45 Classical

As implied by the name of the sub-collection, the Franck Muller Vanguard Classical suite offers more traditional designs like the ref. V 45 SC DT CIR (BZ BR NR) - BK—a lofty title for a notable bronze timepiece. This model features the brand’s iconic Arabic numerals on top of a striking black dial, finished with a luminous coating on the hands and numerals to enhance readability. This watch also includes a sapphire crystal to protect the dial and hands.

Vanguard V 45 Yachting Chronograph

Diving deeper into the Yachting selection, it’s easy to find remarkable pieces like this Vanguard Yachting Chronograph ref. V 45 CC DT YACHT (BL). The symbolic “Yachting” inscription is positioned below the 6 o’clock, while a beautiful compass rose sits in the middle of the dial. This brushed rose gold timepiece is great for those who are looking for a chronograph that features a SuperLuminova coating, sapphire crystal, and 360-degree scale.

Vanguard V 45 Gravity

For those who delight in intricacy and detail, the skeletonized dials featured in the Vanguard Gravity sub-collection are truly breathtaking. In particular, the ref. V 45 T GR CS SQT BR (NR) gives wearers a clear view of the manual caliber as well as its tourbillon movement. As one peers into the inner workings and oscillating parts, they marvel at the red or blue tourbillon cage as well as other color accents on the hands, minute scale, and hour markers.
