Franck Muller Presents Split Second Chronograph Double Face

May 11, 2009
Franck Muller, famous in the world of watchmaking as the 'Master of Complications', has now created a new sophisticated timepiece - a triple chronograph model.

The new Franck Muller Split Seconds Chronograph watch boasts a sensational chronograph characterized by remarkable technical sophistication and aesthetics.

The timepiece
accommodates an automatic size RDF FM 7002 movement, built with a rotor in platinum 950. The movement, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, gives an advantage of a 42-hour power reserve. It provides the following functions: hours, minutes and seconds, chronograph seconds, minutes and split seconds counter. Moreover, it offers three different measurement scales: pulsometer, telemetry and tachometer.

The Split Seconds Chronograph is ‘concentrated’ at timing functions. The hours and minutes are presented via a sub-dial positioned at 6 o’clock. The central axis is reserved for the two chronograph pointers for measuring elapsed seconds. The regular display seconds are featured via a counter at 9 o’clock, while the 30-minute chronograph counter is positioned at 3 o’clock.

The case back of the new Franck Muller watch is worth special attention. It demonstrates a second display with timing functions, along with a pulsometer scale, and a double tachometer scale.

The Cintree Curvex case is crafted from steel and incorporates a sapphire crystal front and back. The steel crown is used for operating the split seconds function. The timepiece is 20-meter water-resistant. It is coupled with an alligator strap fitted with a steel buckle.

The tachometer scale is featured on the main dial (60 to 900 km/h) and also on the case back in three concentric scales (20 to 30 km/h, 30 to 60 km/h, and 60 to 900 km/h). This function is used for assessing the speed of a car.

The telemetry scale (indicated from 1 to 20km) allows to measure a distance based on the speed of sound. As for the pulsometer scale, it is necessary for calculating one's heart rate based on 15 pulsations.
