The More Complicated The World Watch: The Franck Muller Aeternitas Mega 4

Return now early January 2010, date at which, the watchmaker Franck Muller launched his Aeternitas Mega 4 watch, a watch not like others as it marked the history of watchmaking, but why?

This watch is the most complicated in the world watch, i.e. bringing together as many complications! A watchmaking complication being, for the most novice, an additional function to the poster of the hour, minutes and seconds on the guard time. The complications are many and more or less useful, admittedly, it may include the display of a date window, power reserve, the day of the week, a chronograph, phases of moon… But before offering an indispensable function, complications come dressed a dial and demonstrate the know-how of manufactures passion for their job.

Back still to the Aeternitas Mega 4, this watch has more complications in the world, not 10, not 20 complications, but 36 visible complications ! After 5 years of development that this watch-barecelet was able to see the day, realize, 36 complications on a movement of 34.40 x 41,40 mm, 1 483 components! A real achievement and a real technical challenge identified by Swiss home.
