An event as prestigious and ingenious as its initiator, the Franck Muller Group.

Monaco was once more the unique and magnificent setting, this week, of the third World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie & Jewellery. Here is a look back at what has become a key date on the international watch and jewellery scene.

Held from October 8th to 10th, 2012, at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, the 2012 WPHH & Jewellery event came to its conclusion after three highly successful days. 1,100 professionals from the industry and the international press travelled to this third edition of the independent watch exhibition in Monaco.

The Principality's exhibition centre was transformed into a sumptuous showcase for the 10 brands of the Franck Muller Group : Franck Muller - Franck Muller Jewellery - Pierre Kunz - ECW - Rodolphe - Barthelay - Backes & Strauss - Martin Braun - Pierre Michel Golay - Smalto Timepieces and the new “Roberto Cavalli by Franck Muller” - to present their latest creations. The attendees were amazed when the latest creations such as the Thunderbolt tourbillon ( the fastest tourbillon in the world), the Gold Croco, the Cortez GPG and the much anticipated  in-house manufactured calibre were released. Franck Muller also unveiled the stunning first results of its collaboration with the Roberto Cavalli fashion powerhouse.

The Group was also joined by their prestigious partner Cvstos, who presented an equally extraordinary collection.

Each of these magnificent days were enhanced further by the wonderful entertainment, such as the "beach party" featuring a live performance in the waters of the Côte d'Azur, followed by an enchanting Gala dinner at the world renowned Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo the following evening. The guests were treated to various musicians and entertainers as classical and extravagant as the Franck Muller Group timepieces.

A commercial and critical success, this new edition of the World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie & Jewellery in Monaco confirms the Franck Muller Group’s preeminent position in Haute Horlogerie.
