Franck Muller Celebrates Lunar New Year

From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

Franck Muller celebrates the Lunar New Year with a trio of Vanguard watches that display traditional symbolism with modern design. The watchmaker’s new Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Limited Edition is a collection of three gem-set white gold watches that celebrate the year of the dragon in decidedly colorful form.

One of three Franck Muller Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Limited Edition models.

You’ll find the namesake dragon beautifully engraved into the rotor made visible through the back of the watch, seemingly protecting the watch as it hugs the rotor of the skeletonized automatic movement.

The series offers three sapphire caseback crystal color options: red, green, or clear.

On the dial of each watch, Franck Muller places its well-known set of playful Color Dreams numerals.

The numerals are gem-set on two models atop a red or green partial dial plate and are rendered in bright colors atop a model with a polished steel dial plate. The back hue matches the front on each limited edition model.

Franck Muller’s artisans hand-decorate each in-house skeleton movement, highlighting the three-dimensional layout of the caliber.

The watchmaker will make ten pieces in white gold for each Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Limited Edition reference, available only at Franck Muller boutiques across the Asia Pacific region. Price upon request.
