I didn't even bother trying to figure what complications were on this

 By: jleno : November 20th, 2020-16:04
After looking at the dial for about 5 seconds, my brain started to hurt

Browsing FM's watches...

No coffee complications, but believe it or not there is one that doubles as a bitcoin wallet!

Definitely !

It is easy to make fun of this one because of all the crap that FM makes.

 By: als1678 : November 20th, 2020-16:42
But it is a super impressive complication. From watchmaking perspective there are 2-3 watches that can stand against it.

TBH I know little about the brand but would love to learn more

 By: jleno : November 20th, 2020-16:55
My understanding is that the main complaint with FM is the entry level pieces are perhaps overpriced considering the movements used? I do think that some of their watches like the skeleton Vanguard are very attractive!

I can try to say a few things but it is a huge topic ...

 By: als1678 : November 20th, 2020-18:55 Franck Muller, the watchmaker, was one of the most tallented ones of modern times. A master of complications, non lesser than giants like Dufour or Journe. His early watches are masterpieces. Then money and profit margins a...

I always had and have a soft spot for the brand and mainly for there older models . Maybe 3mil is a bit to much but its def a impressive watch imho . Put all these complications in a other case and stamp VC on top and people would go crazy about it . Tbh ...

I wonder what the rules are for actuating the pushers

 By: dte2 : November 21st, 2020-00:42
And if it’s easy to break something at all


 By: Bobbe : November 21st, 2020-07:50

Actually it would be interesting the list the comlplications, because honestly it is not that easy...

 By: montres1 : November 21st, 2020-01:13
From what I observed, I noticed: - Tourbillon (ok that was easy ) - At noon there is a Quantième and month retrograde (for a 2nd time zone ?) - Sonnerie & Silence (at 11o'clock) with power reserve of the sonnerie. Is it a sonnerie au passage ? - At 1 ther... 

This article has some good info on the complications and pushers:

 By: jleno : November 21st, 2020-07:25 Completely agree that it's an impressive piece technically!

Wow thanks for sharing the article, I read it through and I am even more impressed !! Technical masterpiece and the movement, breathless !

Does not mean I would spend the 2.7M even if I had the money, but definitely improves FM's image at least to my eyes, as I had the feeling that their super high-end productions were just CAD images, but the fact that they also do them "in the flesh" is an... 

I pity the owner that forgets to wind this watch...

 By: myles721 : November 21st, 2020-02:03
The “instruction manual” is probably a watchmaker permanently indentured to the watch!!!😆

I was never fan of FM aesthetics...

 By: edo.k : November 21st, 2020-02:59
but the guy was one of the best watchmakers of our time... it's a loss he is not envolved in watchmaking part of his/any brand anymore...

RM and FM

 By: Weems@8 : November 21st, 2020-03:16
The most expensive at ch24. The first time i see RM is not always the most expensive. Comparing, the tonneau case and price did it.


 By: Weems@8 : November 21st, 2020-16:40
Great reply Jl. 😄. that jacobs are not mothers best. That multi time frankensteins are so ugly, i went my head away. The FM you post is far more a beter watch than a jacob. RM did also a nice job making real master pieces. And the king of kings, the might...
