Franck Muller was born in 1958. In the early 1980s, he graduated from the Watchmaking School of Geneva he began repairing top-quality pocket watches and close to an independent watchmaker (Svend Andersen), Franck Muller became responsible for handling watches from the collection of Patek Philippe. In 1984, Franck Muller designed his own tourbillon wristwatch. The business started growing as the private clients of Franck Muller continued to come for new timepieces. The House of Franck Muller opened in 1991 in Geneva and his ultra-complicated timepieces instantly became famous in Europe and the United States. Franck Muller timepieces are famous for their fusion of “modern” style, mostly inspired by American watches from the thirties, like “Elgin tonneau”. Each year, the manufacturer launches at least one new line of timepieces, featuring something special and exclusive, that has never been seen before in the watchmaking industry (“World Premiers”).
