Watch complications are always placed in high regard. After all, they form the backbone of the watch, and provide the very magic that makes it work. It goes without saying, then, that the intricacy behind complications requires a high level of skill and mastery. One particular watch complication that has always intrigued watch enthusiasts is Franck Muller’s Crazy Hours.
And it’s easy to see why — just a quick peek at the dial will send your eyes into a frenzy. Reading the time may take a little over a second to process, but it’s the complication behind it that’s the genius. The numbers are not in chronological clockwise. Instead, they are scattered randomly around the dial.
While the minute hand moves as per usual, the hour hand will abruptly jump to its current time in the next hour. The Crazy Hours collection first debuted 15 years ago, and in conjunction with its anniversary this year, Franck Muller is releasing an Asia-exclusive edition in 23 boutiques and selected watch retailers across the region.
In tandem with the eccentric dial, the Crazy Hours 15th Anniversary Asia exclusive is given a youthful update. On the 7880 and 8880, the blue or grey dials are given a burst of colour on the five-minute markers with either sport green, red, blue, or black tones. These are complemented by matching leather straps.
As for the case, pick from a combination of stainless steel, stainless steel with diamonds, rose gold, or rose gold with diamonds. Finally, there are also three sizes to pick from (39.60mm x 55.40mm, 36.00mm x 50.40mm, and 32.10mm x 45.10mm) for both men and women. The combinations are endless — 40, to be exact.
Take a walk on the fun horological side with the Crazy Hours 15th Anniversary Asia exclusive — it’ll definitely be captivating for generations to come.
