He’s known as the Master of Complications—and no, he’s not your car mechanic or insurance salesman. His name is Franck Muller, world-renowned watch designer, and his creations are now available in the Abt Time Boutique. Complications, for those of you who are new to the world of horology, are the features in a watch that go beyond the simple display of hours, minutes, and seconds. Horology, for those of you who are new to the world of watches, is basically the world of watches, or the art of making timepieces.
Franck Muller Geneve is located in a village called Genthod, in the countryside just outside of Geneva, Switzerland. For more than 20 years, the company has been presenting Franck Muller’s World Premières, based on prestigious complications. Abt is extremely excited to be carrying a full line of these unique, fashionable watches, which are available in the Time Boutique (inside Abt’s retail store) at prices ranging from $5700 to $39,700.
Watch collectors and enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the company’s latest creations, all of which present a complicated movement that has been entirely created by Franck Muller. The main priority of the brand has been to remain independent in creation and innovation, and the company has played an active part in the revival of Switzerland’s great watchmaking tradition.
