The Franck Muller Giga Gong Tourbillon Collection makes its debut in the WPHH in Hong Kong. Produced this year, the Franck Muller Giga Tourbillon bears the world’s biggest tourbillon. A sheer technical marvel powered with four barrels, it holds a 20 mm diameter tourbillon around the dial that occupies nearly half of the watch. Branching out of this Giga tourbillon, the brand new ‘Giga Gong’ takes it one step further.
The brand new in-house designed and manufactured manual watch is enhanced by having an exciting complication - the Striking Hour. This poetic complication will brighten your entire day using its rhythmic chime. The chime will strike at each hour the amount of hrs accordingly.
The 4 barrels are paired in series to supply a power reserve of 6 days. An ON-and-OFF push-button at 4 o’clock can set and de-activate the chime by having an indicator of the function at 3 o’clock around the dial. The whole mechanism is perfectly decorated with circular graining, rhodium plating and hand engraving. Observed in an 18-carat gold casing, this collection will come in two versions - the classic Cintrée Curvex and Round.
Based on Franck Muller, you're searching in the biggest tourbillon ever integrated into a watch. It's 20mm across and occupies a good 50% of the new watch. The tourbillon cage is marked using the initials "FM", which means "Freaking Massive" and also the hand-wound movement includes a ten-day power reserve. The case is made of white gold, although you'd don't know it - it's given black PVD. Couple of particulars on that one can be found, but it is certainly a bit to look for.
The brand new Franck Muller Giga Tourbillon Replica is definitely an exceptional model that needed an very accurate development with a very devoted team. Franck Muller’s development and research department has once more proven remarkable expertise and vision by undertaking this type of amazing technical achievement.
Because of the big tourbillon, a lot more power is needed in the watch. Here, it's run by four barrels. The barrels are first paired in series to double the amount operating reserve they're then put together parallel to each other to ensure that the power from the movement is bending. The barrels, having a diameter of 16 mm, are 4mm wider compared to traditional ones inducing the almost constant pressure required to operate the Franck Muller Giga Tourbillon.
Another special feature is this fact exceptional movement continues to be corrected, using the bridges put on the dial side, the hour setting and winding section situated in the base and also the hour hand distinctively situated on the top from the minute hand.
To be able to ensure a 9-day operating reserve, displayed at midday, (traditional winding through the crown), the Franck Muller Giga Tourbillon continues to be made to feature four barrels, compared to traditional tourbillons which usually are run by just one or two barrels.
