Although the Franck Muller story does not date back centuries, it is an interesting one none the less defined by shaking up the watch world with a bold design and highly complicated watches. Franck Muller came together with Vartan Sirmakes, his lead designer, in 1991 to produce a revolutionary case shape for his watches. This particular case was shaped by adding a third dimension, creating a first in the watch world. Today, Franck Muller calls itself the “Master of Complications,” having developed exceptional pieces as the Crazy Hours and the highly complicated Aaeternitas Mega, boasting 36 complications and 1,483 different components.


Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense. Long-term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. Size and weight may deviate from the manufacturer’s indication. All watches are hand-measured and weighed.


Conditions may not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, dial, pendulum, separate base(s) or dome. Watches with water resistant cases may have been opened to inspect the movements; however no warranty is given that the watch(es) are currently water resistant.


We do not warranty nor guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, including wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets, leather bands, and strap hardware, as repairs, restoration, and other subsequent work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.


Timepieces often contain extremely complex, fine, and rare mechanisms, as such, buyers should be aware that a general service, battery change, or further repair work, which is the sole responsibility of the buyer, may be necessary. No warranty of representation is made that any watch, clock, or timepiece is in working order and no catalog description of any lot should be interpreted as stating the aforementioned.


Condition reports are only for general guidance and may or will not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections. Please be advised that certificates are not available unless otherwise specifically stated. Prospective buyers acknowledge the aforementioned paragraphs and accept responsibility for investigating and inspecting to satisfy themselves of the lots in which they may be interested.
