High-end watchmaker Franck Muller is known throughout the world for his collection. With regard to avant-garde creations and fascinating looks, the Swiss watchmaker is a phenomenon. Considering that the horologist is just a few years old and that the initial watch was only introduced in 1993 renders the situation much more intriguing. A spectacular timekeeper, the Franck Muller Master Mystery here offered features a polished white-gold case with a bezel lined with brilliant-cut diamonds and a case band lined with even more diamonds in pavé setting. The watch bears the so-called Mystery Dial that features a revolving disc and a sapphire-set hour pointer. On the pavé-set diamond dial are located blue baguette shaped sapphires as hour markers. Adding an extra dose of sparkle to this glittering watch are more diamonds on the lugs and sapphires on the lug ends. Inside this timepiece is the rhodium-plated caliber 2800 with 21 jewels and hand-engraved decorations. This model comes with a blue strap with a diamond-adorned 18K white-gold buckle, box and warranty.
