The Revolution series tourbillon launched by Franck Muller represents some of the most ambitious, radical and amazing achievements in the history of contemporary watchmaking. Today, Franck Muller (Franck Muller) launched the Vanguard™ Revolution 3 skull, which has extraordinary technical wonders and emotions that only Frank Muller can discover.
This watch has a stunning skeleton movement, showing the skeletonized black bridge and red aluminum indicator in a stylish way, allowing you to observe one of the most exquisite mechanisms of all timepieces.
This three-axis tourbillon can correct gravity in all positions, while the classic tourbillon only compensates when the watch is in a vertical position. This complex frame system is a technological marvel and the result of one of the most complicated works in haute horology.
The extraordinary three-axis tourbillon that dominates the lower half of the movement slowly rotates the three movements in cycles of 1 hour, 8 minutes and 60 seconds. This highly complex mechanism makes the Vanguard™ Revolution 3 skeleton a miracle of accuracy, and above all a masterpiece of micromechanics.
Power flows from the gear train through all three carriages to activate the balance wheel five times per second. Since Revolution 3 has three carriages, the gear train has a lot of resistance to overcome. In order to provide enough energy to drive the three-axis tourbillon, the movement has a huge power reserve of 10 days. In addition, during the progress of the 8-minute carriage and the 60-second carriage, there are two retrograde instructions at 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock.
This timepiece is placed in a pioneer case for the first time, with a unique sapphire dome on the front and back of the watch, which further highlights the magnificent three-axis tourbillon. The Vanguard case is made of grade 2 titanium and is treated with a black PVD coating. The strap made of red Alcantara® effortlessly adopts the shape of the wrist, perfectly matching the red decoration on the movement and the Vanguard case.
The future design of Vanguard™ Revolution 3 Skeleton is completely designed and manufactured in-house by the company. It is a treasure trove of machinery, demonstrating the exquisite manufacturing technology of Franck Muller.
The brand new Vanguard™ Revolution 3 frame has Franck Muller’s 5-year tourbillon warranty and comes in a very special box with an automatic opening system.Cheap watches
About Cintrée Curvex Revolution 1: Enhancing the art of tourbillon
From the very beginning, Franck Muller understood the emotion that the tourbillon brings to the watch owner. Emotion is the reason that Franck Muller mainly produces flying tourbillons, because without the bridge, you will have a clearer understanding of the tourbillon mechanism. But even so, Frank still noticed that the owner of the tourbillon always put the watch in front of his eyes so that he could peer into the mechanical world. He wondered if it was possible to make a tourbillon that rises from the dial so that the owner could better understand the mechanics of the frame. He began to experiment with this idea and proposed an extraordinary mechanism, Revolution1. Press the button on the left side of the lower case, and the tourbillon carriage rises until it is only a few microns from the bottom surface of the upper sapphire crystal. From the side, you will find that the balance wheel has been fully raised above the height of the dial. The result is an unprecedented timepiece complication.
Frank (Franck) faced a major challenge during the watch concept. If you happen to place the pointer of the tourbillon over the hole when you press the button (for example, at 6 o’clock), the pointer of the tourbillon may be damaged. Therefore, he decided to create a system where no matter where the hands are on the dial, the hands will jump to 12 o’clock to ensure that they will not block the rising tourbillon holder. But more importantly, when the button is released, the pointer will jump back to the correct time position without losing one second of accuracy. Although this sounds simple, the potential technical challenges are extreme. Getting the hands to jump back to the correct time is much more difficult than just raising the tourbillon. Franck’s solution was to design a system similar to the return function in a split-second chronograph. Essentially, he had to make two tricky things-one in each hand-which is why Revolution 1 is so difficult to develop.
Therefore, for Franck Muller, the success of the subsequent Revolution 1 demonstrated the untapped potential of redeveloping the tourbillon for contemporary consumers. The acclaim of Revolution 1 quickly paved the way for one of the major breakthroughs in the new millennium watch: the first multi-axis tourbillon watch.
About Cintrée Curvex Revolution 2: Two-axis tourbillon
The tourbillon-or “Whirlwind”, as the name suggests is translated from French-is the most in-depth, acclaimed and highly respected complication in the world of fine watchmaking. It consists of a bracket in which all the adjustment mechanisms of the mechanical watch, including the balance wheel, hairspring and escapement are placed. Then, it rotates around its own axis every 60 seconds to compensate for errors caused by gravity in these components when the watch is in a vertical position.
Since it is designed for pocket watches, the classic tourbillon can only compensate for the negative effects of gravity in the vertical position. Therefore, after months of research and development, Franck Muller (Franck Muller) launched the Tourbillon version of Revolution 2. Revolution 2 rotates around two axes, so it can not only compensate for the effects of gravity when it is vertical or horizontal. This innovation brings a new connection to the tourbillon in the form of a Review replica watch.
About Cintrée Curvex Revolution 3: Beyond 3D
As conceived by pocket watches, the tourbillon is designed to work in a vertical position. However, for a watch, the “normal” position may vary greatly depending on the wearer’s movement, which in turn can cause major changes in operation.
Therefore, after years of development, Franck Muller produced the world’s first three-axis tourbillon in 2004, which completely changed the watchmaking industry. Franck Muller’s engineers surpassed Revolution 2 and created a true masterpiece. Revolution 3 provides extraordinary technological wonders and emotions that only Franck Muller can discover. This three-axis tourbillon can correct gravity in all positions, while the classic tourbillon only compensates when the watch is in the vertical position. This amazing complexity is the result of one of the most complex pieces in Haute Horlogerie.
