Franck Muller Tourbillon Impérial Répétition Minute

Franck Muller's ultimate? 

 
 
In the Franck Muller range of watches, there is one that attracts everyone's attention and really stands out from this range: the Imperial Tourbillon Minute Repeater Curvex.
 
This Franck Muller watch is aimed at collectors of the greatest complications: Patek Philippe watches, Vacheron Constantin watches, Rolex watches, Audemars Piguet, A. Lange & Söhne, Cartier, Roger Dubuis, Ulysse Nardin, Jaeger-LeCoultre and, in general, a large number of tourbillon watches. 
 

A triple exception: platinum, tourbillon, minute repeater

 
 
But if this Franck Muller Tourbillon Imperial Minute Repeater Curvex watch stands out from the crowd, it is not only because of its tourbillon. This Franck Muller also stands out from the crowd with its platinum case, an ideal case for tourbillon watches. If this Imperial Tourbillon Repetition Minutes Cintrée Curvex, therefore, ticks the box for the tourbillon and the platinum case, it is already that its price reserves it for an informed public. However, the price is not everything, as it is for most Ref. Patek Philippe and their equivalents at Vacheron Constantin, Rolex, Audemars Piguet or Cartier. 
 
Indeed, most of the watches in these watches frequently have a tourbillon, but very few also have a minute repeater, like this Imperial Tourbillon Minute Repeater Curvex. In reality, the Minute Repeater Tourbillon is mastered by a few rare companies, including Ref. Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Jaeger LeCoultre and Audemars Piguet, when Rolex most often focuses on watches with mechanical movement without these complications. 
 
The Franck Muller Tourbillon Imperial Minute Repeater  Curvex watch is also distinguished by the design of its famous "platinum case" case: this one has a curvex and curved shape. Curvex marks the curvature of the case, curved its profile. These two operations, curvex and curved, form a box inclined at all angles that very few houses are able to execute - including Franck Muller or Cartier. The Ref. Patek Philippe Gondolo, as well as some Cartier models, offer a curved or Curvex profile but both at the same time, as on this Imperial Tourbillon Repetition Minutes Curvex, is a very rare exercise. Rolex, Audemars Piguet, or Jaeger LeCoultre most often prefer watches with round, flat-bottomed cases. 
 

A spirit of independence

 
 
Finally, this Franck Muller Tourbillon Imperial Minute Repeater  Curvex is distinguished by the uniqueness of its manufacture. While Rolex, Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet remain independent watch brands, Vacheron Constantin, Cartier, Roger Dubuis, Ulysse Nardin, Jaeger LeCoultre or A. Lange & Söhne are companies that belong to major watchmaking groups. By its independence, the Franck Muller manufactory is free of its forms and complications and this Imperial Tourbillon Repetition Minutes Cintrée Curvex proves better than any other that the manufactory claims this state of mind, this highly prestigious mechanical exception.
