From the Master of Complications comes an audacious creation that reinvents the concept of multi-time zone watches. First unveiled in 1996, Franck Muller’s Master Banker was born from the frustrations of a banker who wanted immediate visibility on three trading time zones. Wanting to offer a watch that would show more than just three separate hour hands, Franck Muller ingeniously devised a timepiece with three independent time displays.
This year, Franck Muller builds on the Master Banker’s legacy with the new Cintrée Curvex Master Banker Asia Exclusive—a regional exclusive showcasing the signature three-time zone complication housed within Franck Muller’s iconic case. With a new profile, this timepiece sets forward Franck Muller’s technical ingenuity once more.
The Cintrée Curvex Master Banker Asia Exclusive’s technical sophistication is matched by its elegance. A horological tool for on-the-go bankers and the discerning jet set, the watch flaunts a beautiful brushed sunray finish dial underneath its domed sapphire crystal, and its iconic case is available in a choice of 18k rose gold, stainless steel, or hand-polished blackened steel.
Offered in seven vibrant colour combinations, with a choice of two sizes—36.00mm x 50.40mm (Ref. 7880) and 39.60mm x 55.40mm (Ref. 8880)—this boardroom-ready wrist statement is primed to make an impression both at home and abroad.
Two decades on, the MVD 2800-MBSC automatic movement’s famed functionality continues to shine. The local time is told by the central hour, minute and seconds hands, while the aperture at eight o’clock reveals the date synchronised to the local time. Elsewhere, two sub dials at twelve and six o’clock represent the actual times in the second and third time zones.
