Franck Muller Master Jumper Dubail Limited Edition

Franck Muller unveils the world premiere of an emblematic timepiece: the Master Jumper. An exceptional piece with an incredible jumping hours, minutes and date complication featuring three apertures offering a new reading time on a sublime dial.

Pursuing its quest for original creations, Franck Muller is offering a world premiere to collectors with a new emblematic timepiece: the "Master Jumper", housing a 100% manufacture movement. An exceptional timepiece with an incredible jumping hours, minutes and date complication, featuring three apertures for a new reading of time, on anexceptional dial.

Faithful to its origins in the design of avant-garde timepieces, Franck Muller is once again asserting with this exceptional collection its desire to create a watchmaking style that respects its past, while offering a new way of reading time.

Since its creation in 1992, Franck Muller has combined boldness and creativity with exceptional expertise in fine watchmaking. The Master of Complications cares to introduce new functions and unconventional time readings, which each year gives rise to world premieres and the registration of new patents.

Today, Franck Muller is proud to present its new Master Jumper collection, in which the hands have been replaced by five discs featuring hour, minute and date numerals. At each hour change, the gear train leads the disc to jump one step, changing the time in the first aperture at the top of the dial. The minutes, placed at the centre of the dial, have two discs for the units and tens, giving this mechanical watch a numeric reading of time.

A world premiere, the jumping hours and minutes are complemented by a third aperture featuring a jumping Grande Date. Two discs enable the date to be changed by jumping, a technical difficulty that requires extreme precision. This timepiece offers an incredible spectacle with the hours, minutes and date changing in a hypnotic jump. This work without hands is a genuine horological feat, requiring perfect indexing of all the displays and exceptional watchmaking expertise.

The three apertures have been placed vertically and equidistantly on the dial to highlight the perfect success of the symmetrical and minimalist positioning of the triptych. Combining the three jumping functions of hour, minute and date on a single dial, this exceptional timepiece once again demonstrates Franck Muller's great mastery of complications, earning him the title of "Master of Complications".

Franck Muller presents this new complication in the latest interpretation of its unique tonneau shape: the Cuvex CX.Created to celebrate the brand's 30th anniversary, this redesigned case features a sapphire crystal that extends from noon to 6 o'clock, right down to the bracelet, offering a magnificent view of the dial. A bold design that fully highlights the watch's curves with a full perspective on the dial and its new guilloché inspired by a twisted “Clous de Paris” to an impression of movement on the dial and rich reflections thanks to the different facets. It has been worked here in two distinct circles to highlight the complications. This finishing touch gives the timepiece a unique style that combines tradition and modernity. This collection offers classic and elegant finish with a thin bezel beneath the sapphire crystal that highlights the triple jumping complication.

With this new collection, Franck Muller continues its great lineage of Master Square, Master Banker and Master Calendar.

The Master Jumper represents a breakthough in watchmaking which offers a fresh and captivating way of reading time. This collection is designed for those who appreciate exclusivity and desire to own a truly remarkable timepiece. The collaboration between Franck Muller and Dubail Paris ensures that each Master Jumper timepiece is a work of art, meticulously crafted to perfection.

Backed by a solid partnership spanning more than twenty years and a genuine friendship, Franck Muller has decided to launch its new Master Jumper with Dubail Paris, through a special series that is presented as a world preview in the Dubail boutiques in Paris, on Place Vendôme and the Champs Elysées. The Dubail family's boutiques in Paris are the perfect setting for the launch of this new collection.

Through this exceptional work, which offers a new interpretation of the passage of time that is both technical and aesthetic, Franck Muller and Dubail Paris are together writing the next chapter inthe history of Haute Horlogerie.
