Crazy Hours by Franck Muller overturns convention with hour numerals positioned randomly on the dial. Now the craziness continues with three new models.

In 2003 the House of Franck Muller revolutionised the world of watch making with a totally innovative approach to the very notion of time. As a matter of fact, the Crazy Hours establishes a new philosophy and proclaims independence from the established order of time.
Since the earliest sun dials, the watch hands have always moved in chronological order from 1 to 12 and the association of the zenith with noon is so strong that nobody needs to recognise the numeral 12 in order to know what time it is. Crazy Hours offers a new reading of time. With the Crazy Hours models, time becomes a value that is personal, individual, and unique. The numerals on the dial of the Crazy Hours are presented in an unconventional order. At the same time, however, the reading of the hours remains precise. Thanks to a patented mechanism, the central hour hand literally jumps from the numerals one to twelve placed randomly on the dial, whereas the central minutes hand moves in a conventional way.

This year three new models complete the Crazy Hours collection. The Time pieces have: skeleton hands, new dials and a perfect combination of black & red and black & white colours range.
