Franck Muller Vanguard Racing Krypton Collection
Franck Muller brings two new eye-catching models to the Krypton collection that are inspired by the Vanguard Racing collection. Taking elements of motorsport into its design, the new Racing Krypton cases are lit, thanks to an innovative carbon fibre moulding process that injects phosphorescent LumiNova® pigments into the fibres.
While the original Vanguard Krypton had a forged carbon case with waves of LumiNova® material, the new Vanguard Racing Krypton watches use a new process that creates points of luminous material within the carbon case, appearing like clusters of stars on a deep black sky.
A Racier Krypton Series
The Racing Krypton models are bold with large applied skeletonised Arabic numerals and indexes, and come in two dial colours: green and blue, with military green or blue inserts on the sides of the case, respectively. The brushed case with broad curves, harmonious contours and balanced proportions, are a sporty take on the classic Vanguard case.
The Racing Krypton collection features two models, a three-hand model and a Grande Date chronograph model with a large date display. The former is powered by the brand’s reliable in-house FM 2536 movement, with a 42-hour power reserve sustained by a bidirectional self-winding rotor. The Vanguard Racing Krypton Grande Date has a skeletonised dial and counters, revealing the powerful FM 7002 movement under the display.
