Franck Muller was born in 1958 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, and is a genius watchmaker. He graduated with first class honours from the Geneva Watchmaking School and then continued his career as an independent watchmaker, restoring old pieces and creating original watches.
In 1992, he founded a brand bearing his own name, and with its eccentric, retro design language and unprecedented individuality, it has risen to the top, alongside historic brands, despite being a young brand.
It can be said to be the pioneer of the brand that related the name of an independent watchmaker, which is not rare nowadays. The Japanese market has been important to the brand since its inception, and the brand's first boutique was built in Aoyama, Tokyo. Therefore, the brand is very popular in Japan and there must be many people who have heard the name.
Nowadays, watches with classic designs made in the early days of the independent watchmaker brand are highly valued due to their rarity and high quality.
F.P. Journe and Daniel Roth are already very popular, and Franck Muller is becoming the next brand to be noticed.
This watch is a 7000 CC round chronograph, mainly manufactured in the late 1990s and 2000s.
Franck Muller is famous for its Tonneau Curvex and Long Island case designs, but most of the cases it adopted when it started making watches were round.
The idea was to express himself in a traditional and pure style, and also to pay respect to the watchmakers of yesteryear.
The case is made of 18K white gold. 7000CC watches are often made of stainless steel, so those made of gold are rare. The case diameter is 39mm.
At first glance, the case is a classic round case, but it also has a modern watch-like appearance, giving the impression of a design born from the harmony of classic and modern.
The dial is a black dial with a sandblasted finish. The subdial and the outer edge of the dial are silver, a two-tone combination. The hands are made of white gold, the same as the case, while the hands on the subdial are blued steel.
Applied indexes are Arabic numerals only for 12, the others are fitted with dots. The silver lettering of the brand's logo, the arrangement of the inner dials and the delicate guilloché engraving all combine to create a well-balanced design.
The movement is a self-winding Cal.FM7000. The movement has a rotor made of platinum for improved winding efficiency, and the blue-glazed screws and the finishing of the various parts can be seen through the transparent case back.
Comes with a warranty which stamped 2012 from an authorized dealer in Japan, a box, and a genuine white gold pin buckle.

About Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
