This Franck Muller Double Mystery Black Sapphire has a beautifully engraved mechanical automatic self-winding Franck Muller caliber 2800 movement. It's rhodium-plated with Cotes de Geneve embellishment on the bridges, a straight-line lever escapement, 25 jewels, and a shock absorber device. It includes a monometallic Glucydur balance, a platinum ball-bearing rotor, and the mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vph (4 Hz).


The Round line reaffirms Franck Muller’s mastery of the watchmaking art in its purest tradition. Purity and sober design are the guiding principles of the Round collection. From classic and simple models to exquisite complications featuring breath-taking engraving on the movement such as the Double Mystery, the Round collection really emphasizes classical sobriety with distinguished elegance.


The Double Mystery watch refers to the lack of hands on the dial of this watch. The ingenious movement allows the two discs to rotate separately. With Black Sapphire hour markers and hands, a full pave diamond dial, and a full pave diamond case, the watch is incredibly eye-catching and a sight to behold. The movement on show is the Double Mystery — the mystery being that there are no traditional hands at play here, rather two triangles nestled amongst the brilliance of the fully set dial.
