Father’s Day’s Recommendations From Franck MullerWritten by Alvin Wong
Your dad would love you for this.
How about REALLY pampering your dad this Father’s Day? From regal dress watches to bold casualwear, the renowned independent Swiss watchmaking house has it all.
Vanguard Crazy Hours Asia Exclusive
This is for the dad who rules the boardroom with grace and humour. Housed in a slightly oversized red gold case, the Vanguard Crazy Hours Asia Exclusive imbues caprice in a classic dress watch set-up with Franck Muller’s inimitable ‘Crazy Hours’ complication that shows a dial with jumbled hour numerals and hands that jump from point to point.
Vanguard Crazy Hours Asia Exclusive In Carbon
How cool is your dad? Carbon cool? If so, consider this version clad in lightweight carbon, distinguished by its evocative raven sheen and woodgrain-like pattern. Strictly an after-hours accompaniment, though, the watch is powered by the same ‘Crazy Hours’ complication as the rose gold version.
Vanguard 7 Days Power Reserve Skeleton
As the name implies, this is one beast of a mechanical powerhouse, promising up to seven days of power reserve on a single wind, so that you dad can leave it on the dresser for an entire week, pick it up, and it’ll still be running. But it’s not just the power reserve that is epic. The skeletonised execution that artfully showcases the movement is just as breathtaking.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
