Franck Muller Casablanca Ref 5850

$3,625

Pre-owned Franck Muller 32mm Casablanca, Salmon Dial, Leather Strap, Ref 5850

This barrel shaped watch case is reminiscent of vintage watchmakers who weren’t satisfied with a simple round shape.  The dancing hour numerals have a 1920’s Parisian flair.  Together with the salmon colored dial, the watch design blends the vintage with the modern without any hint of irony or stuffiness.  It’s a smart watch that should brighten anyone’s day.  This Casablanca has a generic calf strap but retains the original Franck Muller steel tang style buckle.

Description

The company was founded in Geneva by Franck Muller and Vartan Sirmakes with the aim of creating exclusive timepieces characterized by complicated movements and original designs. Thanks to its strong in-house capabilities, this young company rapidly became one of the best Swiss horlogerie brands.

After a few years as a watchmaker, Franck Muller started creating unique timepieces under his own name. He wanted to challenge the influx of quartz watches in the market and decided to devote his work to the creation of unique timepieces, wristwatches in particular, that offer the same level of technical achievement presented in pocket watches.

In 1983, after months of research and dedication, Franck Muller presented his first wristwatches. They all had a complicated movement that had been created solely by himself. He realized that there was a demand in the market for collectors in search of unique timepieces.

In order to meet that demand, every year since then, he has succeeded in unveiling a World Premiere, assembling complications that have never been created before. Franck Muller recognized very early on that the Tourbillon was an important scientific invention. It was created over 200 years ago in an attempt to achieve greater accuracy for timepieces. Franck created, for the first time ever, a Tourbillon visible from the front. His revolutionary new design and subsequent Grand Complications became the cornerstone for Franck Muller.

Co-founder and CEO of the Franck Muller Group, Vartan Sirmakes is a jeweler whose passion for design, architecture and beautiful objects, inspired him to diversify his business and enter the watchcase business in partnership with Pierre Ecoffey, a bracelet and watchcase manufacturer. The collaboration was very successful and they acquired prestigious clients such as Daniel Roth. This was his first step into the watch industry. The manufacturing of high-end watches had now become his goal, and for this, he found in Franck Muller a suitable partner.
