Franck Muller Geneve
Conquistador Cortez Centre Second King 10000 CC SC D KING
In the 16th century, the Conquistadors sailed in search of El Dorado, the fabled country of gold. With the Cortez line, Franck Muller has sought to pay homage to a highly cultivated and most untypical conquistador. Unlike the violent stereotypes, Hernando Cortez had a different vision of the New World and its indigenous peoples, a vision in which the conquered and the conquerors would work together to build a new society
Franck Muller creations are known to be some of the most complicated wristwatches in the world. Wristwatch incorporating a Grande and Petite Sonnerie with 3 positions, a Minute Repeater, a Perpetual Calendar with retrograde monthly equation, 24-hour indicator, a split-second Chronograph with 60-minute timer, a flying Tourbillon, indicator of the internal temperature of the mechanism, power-reserve striking-mechanism, power-reserve movement.
(No the 10000 CC SC D KING does not look like the Michele Deco XL w/ Diamonds if you ask me)
