Although Franck Muller often shocks us with its amazing high complexity and world premiere, Franck Muller’s latest products, shall we say, are more technically restrained.
Remember that a watch is a playful and sentimental time, and the numbers are read in reverse. Of course, it is not technically as complicated as Franck Muller’s famous tourbillon, and Remember certainly has no shortcomings in terms of poetry. A watch full of romance and charm, full of nostalgia. Even though it looks like such a simple idea, you can’t help but wonder why no one (as far as we know) thought of it before.
However, it should not be surprising that this is Franck Muller’s creation. After all, this is the brand that designed the Crazy Hours watch, which is a time-jumping complication. The numbers on the dial are arranged in a seemingly random order.
The founder Mueller conceived when he was on vacation in Mauritius. The Crazy Hours complication places the hour digits on an arc about 150 degrees from the previous digit, so the hour hand is stuck almost halfway through the dial as the hour advances, and Minute hand moves as usual.
With the Remember watch, all three hands move in a counterclockwise direction, giving you the illusion of going back in time. This can be seen most clearly by scanning the second hand, which slides gracefully in the opposite direction on the dial. http://www.chronosale.co
It is true that it takes a little time to get used to reading the time correctly, especially because it is different from the Crazy Hours complication in which the minute hand moves clockwise. But then again, part of the attraction is actually looking at time in a different way, isn’t it? If you are still confused, the brand recommends that you check your watch through a mirror to see the correct time. We know that this is an extension, but it does apply to watch lovers who are looking for less traditional watches.
Aesthetically, Remember watches are in line with Franck Muller’s brand DNA, with Cintrée Curvex case, iconic fonts and guilloche sun patterns printed on the dial. The dial is carefully finished with 20 layers of enamel, and holographic numbers are scattered in the same signature font.
Currently only available in 18K rose gold, it would be great if the Remember nice watches could evolve into a complete series, just like Crazy Hours. Different execution methods, date display, and even tourbillon can well expand the series. But now, we are very happy to sit down, reminisce about the past, and enjoy this beautiful complication.
