Noble Art

Passion, precision and innovation are the three essential qualities that highlight the creative genius of Franck Muller.  For over twenty years, the history of our watches has been marked by innumerable masterpieces and collections giving a contemporary style and spirit within the legendary universe of the Art of Watchmaking.

In the workshops of Franck Muller Watchland, the watchmakers have the privilege of assembling the movement in its entirety.  It is important that each part is given the individual attention it requires so that every wristwatch leaving Genthod workshops passes the test of time with distinction and that the excellence of the art of watchmaking may be passed on from generation to generation.  Many artistic crafts are essential to watchmaking and, in Fine Watchmaking, respect is shown for perfect mastery of them.  Franck Muller continually strives to perfect and extend his research into every single watch component, constantly refining the essential link between cutting-edge techniques and traditional craftsmanship.

As such, Franck Muller engraving workshops perpetuate this traditional craft, favoring ancestral expertise by respecting entirely hand work, with no intervention other than the talent of the artist and his tool.

Every component becomes “the” showpiece of the watch when one contemplates the beauty and precision in the creation and decoration of every part.  The degree of hand finishing and hand craftsmanship on Franck Muller watches and their grand complications are exemplary within the industry.  The care, patience and attention given to each component is tremendous.  An artisan decorator is sometimes required to work 20 hours on a single component.  Even if the components will not be visible, it is very important that the beautiful movement looks as beautiful inside as outside.  This level of care is what gives to the Franck Muller timepieces their identity and their infinite value.
