Cortina Watch Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Franck Muller
By SENATUS Magazine | 5 September 2022

Franck Muller celebrates 50 years of Cortina Watch with a selection of the best of high jewellery watchmaking and the most impressive grand complications at a special exhibition at Paragon Singapore’s main atrium from 1 to 13 September 2022 (11am – 8pm daily).

A fine representation of haute horlogerie, comprising spellbinding triple-axes tourbillons to immaculate invisible gem-settings, these timepieces exemplify Franck Muller’s relentless pursuit of watchmaking excellence.

In addition, the Swiss watchmaker has also an exquisite collection of five pièce unique renditions of the watchmaker’s groundbreaking Revolution 3 Skeleton model that is specially created in conjunction with Cortina Watch’s 50th Anniversary.

Franck Muller debuted the triple-axis Revolution 3 in 2004, when it was the very first timepiece to feature a tourbillon that rotated on three axes, countering the effects of gravity from all directions.

Developing and producing such a marvel requires an exponentially greater amount of engineering and precision than a regular tourbillon. The three tourbillon carriages – one for each rotational axis – must be positioned relative to one another, and any irregularity will affect the entire system. A tri-axial tourbillon also entails additional mass that must be driven by the main spring, which in turn affects the movement’s isochronism and power reserve.

In the Vanguard Revolution 3, the three tourbillon carriages rotate at intervals of one, eight, and 60 minutes respectively, while two retrograde indicators flanking the tourbillon track the progress of the one-minute and eight-minute tourbillon carriages. It also offers an impressive 10-day power reserve.
