Get your Euros ready! Master Diving, Franck Muller's innovative and exclusive new diving watch, is launching with a "First Edition" of 12 copies available exclusively on the French market. It comes in five dial colors, with a vintage face that defies the traditional codes of Haute Horlogerie. Among other features, the watch has a round design associated with the Curvex case, a rotating ceramic bezel, three chronograph counters in brushed steel, and water resistance up to 100 meters. In addition, the Master Diving features a unidirectional rotating bezel with a new patent lock, as well as a 20-minute oxygen reserve mark. So many elements that make this accessory a timepiece also arm it for an elegant journey into the deep.

Tricompax Self-Winding Chronograph Movement

Its long box of brushed steel has flanks with polished pushers, arranged on both sides of the winding crown. The dial distributes its meters classically, namely: small seconds at 9 o'clock, a 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock, and a totalizer from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock. Inside is a Franck Muller self-winding Tricompax chronograph movement, designed on Valjoux 7750 roughing.

Note that this watch allows precise control of the decompression stops, as well as time, whether you're in the deep sea, on land, or in the air. The black rubber strap, with a subtly detailed structure, carries the mark of Franck Muller. This rare chronograph reasserts its originality with a variation of colored dials, including blue, black, red, orange, and white. Its innovative aesthetic synthesizes vintage inspirations, with the bit of madness signature to Muller's creations.

Technical Details

The "First Edition" includes 12 pieces per color. All come with brushed steel box, 46.33 x 55.40 mm, rotating bezel with graduated ceramic insert, 100 meters waterproof, mechanical and self-winding chronograph movement, 42-hour power reserve, and hours, minutes and seconds in the center
