Top Quality Franck Muller Galet Replica Watch Men's Replica Hands-On
Found in 1991, Franck Muller is an independent watch brand that has a history of 26 years. Over the years, they have have amazed enthusiasts and collectors with their bold and brash watches and collections. The early part of this decade was arguably the brand's most fertile period. Longtime watch enthusiasts will surely remember the launch of the bonkers Aeternitas Mega 4 in 2010, a super complicated watch that has 36 complications and over 1,400 components. And a year later, it was followed by its attention-grabbing Galet Replica watch. Even today, the Franck Muller Galet Replica watch still boasts the largest tourbillon mechanism in any wristwatch, so let's take a closer look at some of them here. The Franck Muller Infinity Replica cage measures a whopping 20mm in diameter, which is near double the size of most watches found in other watches, and nearly half the diameter of many watches! Also impressive is how the cage is marked with the brand's initials, FM.
When you consider the amount of energy that is required to animate its size, you will find it is a stunning achievement. To accomplish this, Pierre-Michel Golay, the master watchmaker at Franck Muller, decided that he had to fit no fewer than four barrels into the watch. Not only that, the barrels had to be larger than conventional ones, and in the end they measured over 16mm in a diameter, almost rivaling the diameter of the tourbillon itself. This is made even more so when it is housed within Franck Muller's signature Cintree Curvex tonneau-shaped case. This brings me neatly to the first watch I want to highlight here, the reference 8889 T G SQT BR5N. Though it's just one of the many variants of Franck Muller Round Replica watches that the brand puts out, it's also one of the most beautiful. That's down to the harmonious use of materials and simple color matching. You see, the reference 8889 T G SQT BR5N has an 18k rose gold case, and a honey brown alligator strap. The hands are rendered black to add contrast and improve legibility (it is a skeletonized watch, after all), and so are the FM initials on the tourbillon cage. On the wrist, the Franck Muller Galet Replica reference 8889 T G SQT BR5N strikes a remarkable presence, thanks in part to its impressive size and its fine construction. It measures about 44mm wide, which is pretty moderate by today's standards, but it's nearly 60mm tall and 14mm thick. Add to this its curved contours, massive curved sapphire crystal, bright rose gold case with brushed finishing, and the large, exposed, and the watch almost demands to be noticed.
If you prefer something that's more low-key, there's the Franck Muller Galet Replica reference 8889 T G SQT BR NR. It is essentially the same watch as the aforementioned reference 8889 T G SQT BR5N, but comes in a brushed black PVD stainless steel case. It's definitely less flashy, but I also find it harder to read as the hands are coated with white luminescent material and do not offer much contrast against the silver of the mainsprings directly underneath it. Finally, if you prefer a more traditional round case watch, but still want the large tourbillon, there's the Franck Muller Conquistador Replica. The Round Galet Replica was launched in 2012 and features the same caliber FM 2100 as the Franck Muller Galet Replica watches with the Cintree Curvex case. The Round Galet Replica that we have here is the reference 7048 T G SQT BR NR, which is really just the round version of the earlier reference 8889 T G SQT BR NR. Because of its more traditional round case, the Franck Muller Round Galet Replica is also less chunky on the wrist, and is slightly more wearable than the Franck Muller Galet Replica with the Cintree Curvex case. Legibility is somewhat compromised because of the use of black PVD hands with white luminescent material. It simply does not provide enough contrast against the twin mainspring barrels. Franck Muller's Casablanca Replica watches, whether in the more distinctive Cintree Curvex case or a more traditional round case, are certainly very eye-catching watches. The immensely large tourbillon, which takes up nearly half the entire watch's volume, simply screams for attention, leaving bystanders in no doubt that you have something that's very unusual and special on the wrist.
