Franck Muller presents its emblematic Vanguard case in a sapphire crystal version where transparency meets grace. A perfect fusion, which brings purity and lightness to the case and allows its owner to admire the movement in its entirety. Essentially developed for complicated watches such as the Three Axis Tourbillon or skeleton complications, the Vanguard Sapphire collection offers a timeless journey where beauty and magic meet technology.


Sapphire is a very hard and delicate material that opens up an infinite field of possibilities. Franck Muller plays on clarity and contrast with its movements where the bridges can be dreams of colour, a deep navy blue or a polished skeleton. 


A new universe where technique rhymes with beauty. 


Vanguard Collection

Distinguished by a sporty sapphire tonneau shape, the Vanguard™ calls in for clean and futuristic aesthetics with a one-of-a kind design. The strap is cleverly integrated inside the case in order to maintain and extend the curved aspect of the timepiece, the result being a stunning timepiece with a unique design.
