As can be seen from the side photo of this watch at the top of this article, the thickness of this watch is moderate.

This barrel-shaped wine barrel case weighs 44mm x 53mm, has a smooth PVD black matte coating, and is made of stainless steel with a polished 18kt rose gold sandwich. However, the most attractive part of this design is the front of the case.

The vertically-brushed slate-grey dial is decorated with bold rose gold numerals and flared out toward the periphery of the dial in a serif style font commonly found in replica Franck Muller watches. There is a gray scale flange with a graduated tachymeter scale. The black part around the dial has a thin white line engraved by the second hand.

The chronograph subdial and small seconds dial are raised and have a fine radial rib texture. These sub-registers use luminous rose gold hands, outlined in black and white hands, and have a rose gold frame. At 6 o’clock on the dial, you will find a round rose gold frame date window.

The hour and minute hands are bold and bold, and the partially hollow hour and minute hands are made of rose gold, with a brushed finish, and full of luminous materials. The central chronograph second hand is made of the same material and has the same surface treatment, but the red on the arrow is coated with a luminous filling.

Inside the case, you will find an exquisite movement, refined with Côtes de Genève, round texture and rhodium plating. However, the back of the watch is sturdy, so you can take a glance at the mechanical movement only if you remove the back.

The 27 jewel machine that powers this best replica watches is the self-winding Franck Muller FM-7000 movement. It is a 4Hz mechanical movement that beats at 28,800 VPH and has a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. Its functions include a chronograph (stopwatch function, with black frosted fine buttons on the black right side of the crown on both sides), date, hour hand, minute hand and second hand.

The back of the case has a vertical brushed surface, and is engraved with the Franck Muller logo and the slogan “Master of Complications”, limited edition number and reference number.

The right side of the case will display a black PVD-coated crown and rose gold end cap with a polished best Frank Muller logo embossed. The soft and comfortable lilac-gray rubber strap fixes this cute watch device on your wrist. It has a soft touch and a calfskin leather top with rose gold embellishments.

This strap has a matte black PVD-coated folding clasp, with a rose gold medallion on the buckle, with the Franck Muller logo printed on it, and the winding method is the same as the end cap of the clockwork crown.

All in all, this is a beautifully-looking, modern and tasteful watch. For those who want to own some watches, it has a healthy wrist. It is made by a watchmaker who enjoys a high reputation in the industry and will attract watchmaking connoisseurs and your ordinary laymen.
