Franck Muller 8888 GSW T CCR QPS NR description
While generally known for its colorful tonneau-shaped watches, Franck Muller has some serious pedigree when it comes to Grand Complications. Although his nickname 'Master of Complications' might be self-touted, it is to some degree a valid claim. Remember the Piguet/ Muller/ Gerber watch made for Lord Arran? If you don't, look it up - the write-up by Magnus Bosse and John Davis is worth a read. Plus at one time (or still?) this watch is said to have been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
But back to the Aeternitas Mega 4. This watch is a Grande Complication in the traditional sense of the word, offering a chronograph (monopoussoir with flyback function), a calendar (perpetual of course) and chimng functions ( a Westminster Carillon sonnerie). It is housed in an impressive 42.00 mm x 61.00 mm x 19.15mm case, boldly DLC-coated with a matching black dial with deep red markings, making sure you don't go unnoticed while wearing this haute horlogerie masterpiece.
