For those who carry the beach in their hearts no matter where they go, Franck Muller presents the Vanguard Beach, an exclusive collection to Franck Muller Asia Pacific. The bold new collection captures the essence of carefree holidays and endless possibilities by featuring bright and fun colours: ocean blue, fiery red, and summer green. The monochromic timepieces evoke the sea, sand, sun and surf with a splash of sporty chic. In the Vanguard Beach line, Franck Muller demonstrates its mastery over both design and material engineering. Here, the material for the familiar Vanguard watch case has been carefully chosen and constructed in a glass fibre composite, which has been specially tailored to create a pattern of undulating lines reminiscent of ripples in the sand on a beach.
On the 28th of September 2023, the Franck Muller Vanguard Beach Party took place at Singapore’s hottest nightclub, Marquee, recalling carefree holidays and endless possibilities as it marked the launch of the bold new Vanguard Beach collection. Energetic beats from special guest DJ Koflow complemented the vibrant and contemporary essence of the Franck Muller Vanguard Beach in its three bold colours, while guests partied the night away with Nicholas Rudaz, CEO of Franck Muller Geneve, as well as Sharon Lim, CEO of Franck Muller Southeast Asia and Australia. In conjunction with the launch of the Franck Muller Asia Pacific Exclusive Vanguard Beach Collection in Malaysia, Franck Muller has partnered with Here & Now, a modern tiki-themed cocktail bar by embracing a brand takeover concept. This collaboration includes an immersive setup designed to highlight the narrative behind the collection. Indulge in the limited-edition Vanguard Beach Set and specially curated cocktails, capturing the vibrant colors of this collection. The Vanguard Beach is available in three different colors: ocean blue, fiery red and summer green, an exclusive collection to Franck Muller Asia Pacific.
Joining in on the celebration of the Year of the Rabbit, Franck Muller Vanguard Beach and #FR2 have partnered for a very special release — the #FR2NCK MULLER Vanguard watch, which marks the very first collaboration between the edgy, Tokyo-based streetwear label, and luxury Swiss horologer.
Reimagining Franck Muller’s signature Vanguard watch with #FR2’s iconic aesthetics, the resulting piece is an amalgamation between Japanese street fashion and avant-garde elegance. Presented in a high-contrast, monochromatic design, the special-edition timepiece retains the model’s hallmarked appliqué indices and technical specifications. As a nod to the streetwear label, the 7 o’clock hour marker is replaced with #FR2’s provocative Fxxking Rabbits motif. The motif, along with the skeletonized obelisk hands are also coated in Super-Luminova for a glow-in-the-dark effect.
A first for the brand, the tonneau-shaped case is constructed with carbon and glass fiber composite, which will be exclusive to Southeast Asia-exclusive models. Due to the nature of the material and its manufacturing process, every case will boast slightly different patterns and striations, making every watch unique. Additionally, the white nylon strap is emblazoned with co-branding in #FR2’s iconic font as a final touch.
The # Franck Muller Vanguard Beach watch is produced in a limited run of 800 pieces and will be available for purchase today, exclusively for Southeast Asia and Australia. For more information, visit Franck Muller’s official website.
