Franck Muller Casablanca Perpetual Calendar

$12,000.00

 

Model: Casablanca Ref. 2852QP

Movement: Automatic 

Year: Circa 1990s

Contents: Watch Only 

Case: The size measures 31 x 38m, making it one of the most wearable sizes when it comes to the tonneau case shape. The yellow-gold case features four pushers to adjust the perpetual calendar functions. The case is number 19 and it is said that only around 100 examples were produced of this model. The case looks unpolished with normal wear. The caseback has all the engravings and the hallmarks which are still very sharp.

Dial: The dial has a matte cream finish with a beautiful calendar layout. The watch is curved, and that includes the dial. The Arabic numerals are in the iconic Franck Muller font. You have a clean layout with a high complication that is done right so the dial doesn't feel busy.

Strap & Buckle: The watch comes with the original Franck Muller solid gold buckle on our own Butterscotch Strap. 

First, the watch itself. It's not often I emphasize how truly amazing a watch wears, and it needs to be said for this Franck. The case size is amazing at 31mm and it features an amazing complication while staying compact. The watch wears like a dream. I truly think this is the best size for the Casablanca. Its curved case does help it wear as good as it does, and it's super comfortable. Even with a perpetual calendar complication, the watch thickness is perfect.

Franck Muller is a brand that hasn't been too popular since the early 2000s. However, with the interest peaking on higher complications and neo-vintage watches, Franck Muller should be seeing a spike in popularity very soon. Even though it might not be popular now, the appreciation for the brand will always be there. True collectors know how important the brand is when it comes to watchmaking. 'The Master of Complications,' a phrase coined by the brand.

If you haven't yet, I recommend doing some research on the brand but here's a quick history check for you. 

Franck Muller, a renowned watchmaker and restoration expert, was a key figure in the luxury watch industry. He co-founded the brand in 1992 and significantly influenced the aesthetic of the luxury watch landscape in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The brand's designs, particularly its work with tourbillons, have been influential, with the Cintrée Curvex, Casablanca, Vanguard Krypton, Skafander, and Conquistador Tourbillon being the most significant.

Franck Muller's most significant watch designs include the Master Square and Long Island, which have been mainstays of the Franck Muller lineup since about 2000. These watches have been made in various sizes and colors, with both automatic and quartz movements. The brand has also released several classic chronographs, such as the Crazy Hours and Master Banker, which are considered "cult classics" in the world of watch complications.

The most significant Franck Muller complications include the double-sided chronograph, which displays three separate times, each individually adjustable by the user. This is one of the few luxury watches in the world that can properly account for time zones that are a half-hour apart from other time zones. The Double Mystery line features a triangle on a central rotating disc instead of a traditional hour hand, while the Master Banker displays three separate times, each individually adjustable by the user.
