This new Slim Lady’s coachworks (case) and dashboard (dial) draw inspiration from the world of classic automobiles as they evoke a vintage heritage by playing on themes of light and color in eight variations, each with its own character. Dozens of pastel hues in Caribbean & sky blues, pistachio green, lavender & other hues have been carefully considered, rejected, and selected to develop the final pastels that made the cut.


On the dial, Geneva Waves add a touch of panache as they hint at the mechanical nature of the newly developed engine within. The retro look is emphasized with a sub-second display at 6 o'clock reminiscent of the 'Belle Époque' designs, while the Slim Vintage is comfortably secured to the wrist with a matching full grain leather strap integrated seamlessly into the case, each of which is made in-house by Franck Muller’s own team of expert artisans in their Swiss facility.  

The Slim Vintage collection is presented with a 35mm wide case (at the mid-section), and as the name implies is exceptionally thin at only 9.1mm thanks to a new and very flat movement manufactured by the brand. This new caliber (MVT FM 708-S6) is automatic winding, offers a power reserve of 42 hours and accurately tracks time with a 21,600 BPH frequency. Super slim at only 3.73mm, this new movement incorporates 125 separate components, each hand decorated and assembled in Genthod.
