It’s not often that you hear of a ten-year anniversary being celebrated for a watch, but that’s exactly what Franck Muller is doing with the Crazy Watch. And, yes, this is one crazy watch – and one I think is worthy of the milestone being noted.
You can tell that by even a casual glance at the dial – the numbers are all out of order. Rather than just being a design change, this is actually a functional change to the watch. The movement inside employs a jumping hour complication, meaning that the hour hand does indeed point to the correct numeral, moving in the odd pattern shown on the dial. Of note, the minute hand moves just as we’d expect.
I must admit, I’m intrigued by the jumping hour function being employed in this manner, even if it does mean this is not a watch you’ll be reading at a glance (or at least, I don’t imagine one would be). Then again, not many of us would be worrying about that – with only 74 pieces of each example (rose gold or white gold) being produced, I imagine pricing will be on the higher side. Should you be on the lookout for one, though, pay attention to the 10 – it’s set with diamonds on the anniversary edition. franckmuller.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
