The Double Mystery is an exquisite model which demonstrates Franck Muller’s vision of femininity, seduction and elegance. With no traditional hands but employing two individual rotating plates, the watch creates an illusion of floating time.


Embellished with pavé set diamonds across the dial, bezel, case, further highlighting the hour markers, lugs and crown with beautiful sapphires, the present watch is a great example of classical modernity with distinguished elegance.
