The large yet comfortable Casablanca Chronograph reference 5850CC here offered is a very bald creation from Franck Muller. The two curved body case with concave lugs was crafted from solid steel and preserved in remarkable conditions. This particular shape of the case has become a trademark for Franck Muller that perfectly wraps the wrist of the wearer. It has a case back secured with 4 screws and engraved with “FRANCK MULLER GENEVE MASTER OF COMPLICATIONS 5850 CC” and the case numbered 300. The chronograph pushers are inclined and the winding crown is push-down. The dial is guillochè silver tone with painted Arabic numerals and baton hour markers, very elegant blue steel hands and a central blue steel needle chronograph hand with a black inner concentric 60 minute/fifth of a second track with black Arabic numerals every five minutes. Water resistant to 30 metres/100 feet and with a 42-hour power reserve when fully charged, this very watch comes with its original box, guarantee and additional steel bracelet.
