Franck Muller Aeternitas Mega 4 - Most Complicated Watch Ever
Franck Muller, being a true “Master of Complications”, has made a dream come true –a wristwatch packed with the record number of complications!

The timepiece, built from 1,483 components, boasts 36 complications and 25 of them are visible. The 1000-year calendar watch undoubtedly deserves a record price of 2.7 million dollars!

The Master Watchmakers of Genthod faced a remarkable challenge – to create a wristwatch to feature all presently-known horological complications. They used the Aeternitas movement as a base, and the Mega 4 with its grand and small Westminster chime striking-work, the only one available with a tourbillon displayed on the dial.

The watchmakers added a minute repeater, a mono-pushpiece split-seconds chronograph, a perpetual calendar secular, and an equation of time varying just by 6.8 seconds per lunar month, implying one day every thousand years! read more
