Today, Franck Muller might best be known for this Curvex cases and Crazy Hours, but behind the undeniably stylish ‘Franck Muller’ brand is the watchmaker himself — one of the most talented of the 20th century.
In the 1990s, Muller was obsessed with complication, particularly complicated chronographs. Perhaps the most famous of them all are his double sided rattrapante chronograph, an incredibly complicated design which he have returned to glory in this exceptionally limited edition. This ingenious design makes use of the often-overlooked caseback, with a central chronograph hand and several scales such as pulsation and telemetre. In addition to being incredibly cool, it allows for a restrained dial design.
The best thing though is the movement, the FM 7000-CCRDF is new old stock from from Franck Muller’s own archives, a fitting tribute to this legendary and groundbreaking chronograph.

Business at the Front

Not only does the front dial feature off-centered hours and minutes, there’s also a gorgeous field of sunburst black guilloché to gaze on.

Party at the Back

While you can’t get a glimpse at the new old stock caliber from the back, you get something better — another chronograph. This one has pulsometer, telemeter and a spiral tachymeter.

Contemporary Case Size

The original Lemania-based chronographs were 36 or 37mm in size. For this special 30th anniversary celebration, we’ve made a minor increase in size to 39mm.

Sporty Pushers

It isn’t just the case dimensions that are perfect, it’s the details. The crown and fluted pushers are in the style of François Borgel, while the scroll-like lugs feature the distinctive screws.
