Franck Muller is proud to be the exclusive watch sponsor of the world famous vintage car rally, known as The Colorado Grand.
In tribute to this amazing event, Franck Muller has created four exclusive models limited to 33 pieces in honor of this being the 33rd running of the Colorado Grand.
Each of the four timepieces represents an emblematic car: Pine green for the Bentley; stunning silver for the Mercedes, “Rosso Corsa” (racing red) for the Ferrari and “French blue” for the Bugatti.
The Vanguard Colorado limited edition is inspired by automotive art and technical details of vintage cars are designed on each watch. The gorgeous automatic movement manufactured in-house is housed in the famous Vanguard case in its slim 41 millimeters version. The dial showcases bold hand-painted numerals and a seconds counter placed at 6 o’clock, inspired by the car counter.
Attention to details on these beautiful pieces will be appreciated by car enthusiats. Inspired by the automotive industry, the “bochonné” decoration is beautifully reproduced in the center of the watch dial. The seconds counter perfectly mimics an old-fashioned car speedometer with its similar typography, hand design and “assuré circulaire” decoration. While the perfectly integrated strap features the same leather elements as the old cars.
With this special collection, Franck Muller is not only making statement pieces for the Colorado Grand, but is also proud to be the one and only watch sponsor of this race. The limited edition will be appreciated by all who love simplicity and sporty elegance. The Colorado Grand Collection offers different materials as stainless steel, brushed titanium and rose gold.
