Franck Muller Vanguard Lady Tourbillon Gravity and Vanguard Heart Skeleton
Franck Muller_Vanguard Lady Tourbillon Gravity luxury replica watches is the first lady tourbillon in the Vanguard series, but it is by no means the brand's first lady tourbillon. Franck Muller, one of the original independent brands specializing in high complications, was the first watchmaker to start making tourbillons exclusively for women. Its first Lady Tourbillon was launched in 2008 and was simply called the Lady Tourbillon, which gives you an idea of how rare such a thing was at the time – there was no need to identify it any other way; if it was a Lady Tourbillon, it was a Franck Muller. Today, there are three “ladies tourbillons” in the Franck Muller collection: one in the Round collection, one in the Heart collection and one in the Vanguard Lady collection, launched last week at the brand’s World of Haute Horlogerie presentation.
The Lady Tourbillon’s movement is a hand-wound Caliber FM L03, built specifically for ladies’ watches – which means, essentially, it’s miniaturized, built from the ground up as a smaller movement. It measures 5.70mm thick and 29.50mm in diameter, compared to 8.70mm thick and a whopping 38.4mm wide for the Men's Vanguard Tourbillon Manual Winding Movement. The diameter of the tourbillon cage is 16.25 mm for the women's watch and 21.2 mm for the men's watch. The Vanguard Lady Tourbillon Gravity case – a slim barrel shape in typical Franck Muller style – is just 35mm x 11.5mm thick and just 46.3mm long. That's very small for a ladies tourbillon and very, very small for a Franck Muller tourbillon. By the way, ladies, if you prefer a larger watch (44mm wide), you might prefer the men's Vanguard Gravity Tourbillon, which is set with just under 9 carats of diamonds. These bridges are one of the highlights of the Vanguard tourbillon. They are built on three axes, the concave and convex shapes form an elliptical circle, and the overall composition is very three-dimensional. The bridge is the core feature of the watch, and it is this feature that Franck Muller used to give Lady Vanguard Gravity a feminine allure. One of the bridges is made of anodized aluminum and has been dyed pink. Colors match the numeral outlines, markers on the minute track, crown cap and strap. Compared to some of Franck Muller's other cheap replica watches, especially women's watches, the feminine aspect of this watch is actually understated.
Take the new Vanguard V38 Heart Skeleton, for example. The heart is a dead giveaway, this is a "ladies" watch. There are seven of them, and they are not simply printed on the dial, painted on enamel, or outlined with precious stones. They form the bridges of the skeletonized hand-wound movement. The watch's case, in gold or stainless steel, measures 32mm wide and has been honed to achieve feminine proportions. It's fairly thick, though, at 10.40mm, which no doubt keeps it stable in its fully cutout state. The deep silhouette of the heart cutout on the back and front emphasizes the thickness for dramatic effect. The watch is water resistant to 30 meters. Functions include hours, minutes and a small seconds subdial at 6 o'clock. It has a power reserve of four days. The strap is alligator leather on top and rubber on the bottom.
Franck Muller Gravity Tourbillon Skeleton mens replica watch: the perfect combination of watchmaking and the laws of nature
As shown in Franck Muller Gravity Tourbillon Skeleton, gravity and timekeeping are a strange but fascinating pair of bedfellows. Let's start off on a strange road. Gravity is a force that definitely affects spacetime, which is pretty cool. Unfortunately, most people know very little about how they do this, mostly because it's counterintuitive. Since the invention of the tourbillon by Abraham-Louis Breguet, the field of mechanical timekeeping has had a special relationship with this fundamental force.
On the one hand, it makes admirable progress in illustrating how mechanical systems can correct velocity errors caused by gravity acting on hair. On the other hand, it also gives the impression that gravity is the sworn enemy of timekeeping, which is not the case.perfect replica watches
Franck Muller Gravity Tourbillon Skeleton amplifies the poetic side of gravity, relying on the fact that gravity effectively bends space-time. This is most clearly reflected in the gentle slopes of the tourbillon cage and bridges. The implication of this design is that gravity will cause deformation around the escapement without noticeable effects. It's extraordinarily beautiful. Beyond that, the blue accents in the frame and bridges complement each other, as well as the now-familiar curves of the Vanguard case. Of course, the ticket is large, with the carriage itself measuring 21.2mm in diameter; the balance wheel is also large, at 14mm, and noticeably off-centre, drawing further attention to the whole setup.
Returning for a moment to the striking blue color and the contrast with the black elements, the hand-wound movement CS-03.SQT mainly uses anodized aluminum, so there are multiple color possibilities here, from orange to yellow to blue and more of. Personalization is certainly possible here, says Franck Muller. As for the black, it is the result of a PVD treatment, but the movement may also be 5N or rhodium-plated.replica Franck Muller Gravity Watches
