The Swiss watch maker Franck Muller replica watch is a sort of modern legend, and the Franck Muller Group is further an assortment of luxury brands that includes others such as Backes & Strauss. Today, I am going to look at something different for Franck Muller that represents a modern side of the brand. This watch is the special Franck Muller Vanguard Glacier replica watch, from the newer overall Vanguard collection.
The best Franck Muller Vanguard Glacier replica watch sits nicely against the wrist, and with the right color and material choices results in a bold, yet elegant look which doesn’t sacrifice legibility for style. Note the compass markers on the internal flange ring – which I’ll consider being for style. Better than another tachymeter scale – that’s for sure.
Design wise, there is a modern “audacity” to the overall look that will be inviting to some and repel others. That’s fine, since pretty much no watch the luxury Franck Muller replica watch has ever made is intended to have universal appeal. These are well-done watches for people who like to show off a bit… and if you don’t like to show off this way, their timepieces probably won’t appeal to you. Again, don’t judge any of these watches fully until you put one on your wrist. I personally was pleasantly surprised.
Consider the charming Franck Muller Vanguard replica watch collection to take that classic Art Deco look and make it feel much more contemporary. That includes the case as well as the dial – whose Arabic numeral hour markers are applied, and a different take on the painted ones you see on more traditional-looking Franck Muller timepieces. Then you have the case which, also tonneau for the Vanguard, is flatter and a bit more ergonomic than the Curvex case.
The case is steel and 44mm wide by 53.70mm tall, and just 12.8mm thick. The curved Franck Muller Vanguard Glacier replica watch case sits comfortably on the wrist with the integrated rubber strap. Visually, the look of the strap continues through the case with a clever look which makes the case appear as though it sandwiches the strap. To allow for a more high-end look versus straight rubber, the strap has white alligator over the rubber lining – which makes for a good look.
