With the Lunar New Year drawing close, Franck Muller has unveiled three additional timepieces themed on the mythical dragon in the new Vanguard Dragon Slim Skeleton Limited Edition, consisting of three bejewelled references of the Vanguard Slim Skeleton. The watches all bear a customised rotor that has been engraved with a dragon, which appears to coil around and protect the movement like a mystical guardian.
Many of the features that have made the Vanguard Slim Skeleton such a popular timepiece among aficionados still remain. Of note is the skeletonised movement, which was originally developed specially for the svelte profile of the Vanguard Slim. This is an exercise in contrasts – the Vanguard’s bold identity has suddenly revealed a new facet when paired with the open-worked movement and elegant proportions, once again revealing Franck Muller’s mastery over design and style. Things are topped off with a touch of glamour, as pave-set diamonds lend scintillating brilliance to the watches for a true statement piece.
The 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 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.
Just 10 pieces of each reference will be available exclusively at Franck Muller boutiques in the Asia Pacific region.
