For this exclusive partnership, it was only appropriate for Franck Muller to select its most iconoclastic complication, which has been fascinating horological aficionados for years: the Crazy Hours™. The collection combines boldness, creativity and poetry with the exceptional Haute Horlogerie know-how of Franck Muller.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with the world’s finest car manufacturer to produce this bespoke car and this exclusive watch collection. To see our exceptional know how of haute-horlogerie be interpreted into such an exclusive car has been a fascinating experience….“ commented Nicholas Rudaz, Director of Franck Muller Watchland.
To celebrate the masterpiece car, Franck Muller is watchmaking a unique Crazy Hours™ collection inspired by the world of Rolls-Royce. The collection will show Franck Muller numbers in the well-known unconventional order, typical of the Crazy Hours timepieces.
The dial displays the color codes of the car and its sophisticated details that we can found on dashboards and Rolls-Royce seats’. The self-winding mechanical movement offers 42 hours of power reserve.
Thanks to its patented Crazy Hours mechanism, the collection offers a new reading of time. The central hour hand literally jumps from the numerals one to twelve placed atypically on the dial, as such, after every 60 minutes, the hour hand would jump to the next correct number. Meanwhile, the minute hand follows a conventional 60-minute cycle revolving around the dial.
Time becomes a value that is personal, individual that you can forget, behind the wheel of your Rolls-Royce’s car. You are free from constraints – time is ultimately what one makes of it.
