The two partners embarked on a very personal journey to create a unique masterpiece: a Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge inspired by Franck Muller’s famous Crazy Hours.

Bespoke is Rolls-Royce, the programme of the British car manufacturer allows customers to make their motor car as unique as their own fingerprint. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Geneva has a legacy in facilitating outstanding projects to personalize customer cars. Born form this new alliance between the watchmaker et the car manufacturer, this Rolls-Royce “Wraith Crazy Numbers” reflect the spirit of both partners from the colour selection to unique details.

To celebrate the masterpiece car, Franck Muller is watchmaking a unique Crazy Hours™ collection inspired by the world of Rolls-Royce. The collection will show Franck Muller numbers in the well-known unconventional order, typical of the Crazy Hours timepieces. The dial displays the color codes of the car and its sophisticated details that we can found on dashboards and Rolls-Royce seats’. The self-winding mechanical movement offers 42 hours of power reserve. Thanks to its patented Crazy Hours mechanism, the collection offers a new reading of time. The central hour hand literally jumps from the numerals one to twelve placed atypically on the dial, as such, after every 60 minutes, the hour hand would jump to the next correct number. Meanwhile, the minute hand follows a conventional 60-minute cycle revolving around the dial.
