Always specialized in top-quality timepieces, the Swiss watchmaking company Franck Muller was founded in 1991 in Geneva. In addition to Muller's fine craftsmanship and intricate complications, the brand is often recognized for its modern designs and colorful flare. In the course of its short but notable history, the brand rose to prominence for many models such as the Casablanca, Long Island or the Curvex but one of the most appreciated by collectors and passionates is for sure the Conquistador Cortez, such as the present watch. This reference 10000CC strikes for the quality and beauty of its two-body square case in yellow gold, with screwed- down winding-crown and rectangular pushers for the chronograph. The black dial has the classical Franck Muller layout with large white luminous Arabic numerals, outer minute/seconds division with 5-minute red Arabic markers, aperture for the date at 6 and two counters for 30 minutes and hours registration. This specimen also comes with its original box and papers.
