The Grand Central Tourbillon is the world’s first centre tourbillon in a tonneau-shaped case. With its tourbillon moved from the traditional 6 o’clock position into the spotlight on the centre of the dial, its hour and minute hands are innovatively placed around the central tourbillon cage, drawing attention to the complexity of the movement within.
Available in four different case materials, with and without diamonds, featuring contrasting leather straps and guilloché or full pavé dials bearing Franck Muller’s signature oversized art deco indices.

The intricate centre tourbillon is housed in a redesigned Cintrée Curvex case with sapphire crystal extending all the way to the lugs, allowing for greater visibility of the guilloché dial. Extremely rare for a Franck Muller tourbillon piece, the Grand Central Tourbillon boasts a self-winding movement, thanks to an eccentric micro rotor, offering a generous 4 days of power reserve.
