FRANCK MULLER Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton

Swiss luxury watchmaker Franck Muller has prepared two special limited-edition models to celebrate the Lunar New Year. The Maison presents the Cintrée Curvex Ryoko Kaneta Dragon alongside three iterations of the Franck Muller Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton to welcome the Year of the Dragon.

Created in collaboration with Ryoko Kaneta, a young Japanese artist known for her paintings that depict dreamy and ephemeral landscapes that appear as an extension of cutesy anime-style girls. Dressed in a Tiffany blue, the 33mm-wide timepiece is presented in the Cintrée Curvex’s signature curved tonneau-shaped case.

On the tonal and stamped guilloché dial, the dragon is reinterpreted as 12 individual anthropomorphic, each hiding behind its designated Arabic numeral. In terms of power, the reference is equipped with the MVT FM 2536-SC self-winding movement, which is geared with a bidirectional rotor system and 42 hours of power reserve.

As for the limited-edition Franck Muller Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton , the reference is offered in three versions: Rouge, Vert and Color Dreams. Each variant sports a dragon engraving on its caseback along with its namesake hue on the dial. Rouge and Vert are also attired with tinted sapphire crystals on their caseback, meanwhile, Color Dreams features multicolored numerals and a clear caseback. All three colorways arrive in dazzling tonneau-shaped cases set with pavé diamonds, complete with openworked dials that showcase their intricately crafted in-house skeletonized movements.

The Cintrée Curvex Ryoko Kaneta Dragon Limited Edition is limited to 500 examples, while only 10 pieces are produced per colorway for the Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton. Both models are released as exclusives for the Asia Pacific region. For more information, visit Franck Muller’s official website.
Franck Muller has unveiled three additional timepieces themed on the mythical dragon in the Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Limited Edition.

Just 10 pieces of each reference will be available exclusively at Franck Muller boutiques in the Asia Pacific region. The Franck Muller Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Rouge and Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Vert are accented in red and green respectively, with the pops of colour coming from their tinted sapphire case backs, as well as infilled hands. The third reference, the Franck Muller Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Color Dreams, comes with a transparent case back, but brings a riot of bright hues to the dial with its indices instead.
