Franck Muller’s Fourth World Première of Haute Horlogerie & Jewellery in Monaco

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Monte Carlo, Monaco—Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Illustrious, prestigious, breath-taking, spectacular. All these adjectives can accurately describe the gala at Monaco’s Forum Grimaldi in where The Franck Muller group and its ten brands—Franck Muller, Franck Muller Jewellery, Pierre Kunz, ECW, Rodolphe, Barthelay, Backes & Strauss, Martin Braun, Pierre Michel Golay and Smalto Timepieces—revealed their creations.

More than 1,200 guests were in attendance, including famous Italian couturier Roberto Cavalli, with whom the watch making genius, Franck Muller, has entered into a joint venture. This partnership has spawned the all new “Roberto Cavalli by Franck Muller” collection.

Dani Lary’s astonishing stunts with his 360° “flying piano” and a laser show put on by the Lumina violinists from London could have easily stolen the spotlight at the Fourth World Première of Haute Horlogerie & Jewellery (WPHH), held October 8-10, but the debut of the brand’s most recent creation, the “Tourbillon Thunderbolt” garnered the most attention. The tourbillon, the fastest ever created, completes a rotation every five seconds, instead of the 60 seconds counted by traditional tourbillons made by Swiss Manufactures. Similar to this, a vast selection of innovations was also presented, including the “Gold Croco”, the “GPG Conquistador Cortez”, as well as a range of new calibres made by the house and a host of original watch and jewellery collections stemming from the expertise of the Group’s various brands. Needless to say, the Franck Muller Group’s world renowned watches made for an opulent evening.
