With only 64 pieces produced for the region, the Vanguard Lady Jewel Asia Exclusive is set to be a sought after piece for watch connoisseurs and novices alike.
Staying true to the original design of the Vanguard construction, the Vanguard Lady Jewel Asia Exclusive’s case boasts 278 brilliant-cut diamonds and 22 sapphires set in an 18k rose gold or stainless steel finishing. Adding even more sparkle to the timepiece, the dial is adorned with 67 brilliant-cut diamonds and 92 sapphires, complete with meticulously hand-painted applique numerals.
Indeed, this timepiece is a manifestation of Franck Muller’s dazzling joie de vivre, as exquisite multi-faceted jewel catch and bend light, creating a dramatic dance of reflection and refraction, a visual feast for the wearer.
There is a sense of refinement as the remarkable design demonstrates the Manufacture’s technical abilities, as evidenced by a self-winding movement with bidirectional rotor system and a 38-hour power reserve. Avid horologists will be delighted by the collection as it also features matching hand-sewn alligator straps and winding crowns in a myriad of hues.
