Within the 20 years of its existence the company has gained international fame and recognition along with the title of Master of Complications. The brand itself was established in 1991 by Franck Muller and by Vartan Sirmakes in order to create special timepieces with original designs and complicated movements. These functions make the Franck Muller watches exclusive and highly claimed.
The main idea followed in Swiss Franck Muller long Island copy watches is a precise mechanism combined with charming design. The manufacturer is proud of being honored to save the great tradition of “Horlogerie” by creating sophisticated timepieces never seen before.
And this year the Only Watch participates in the Monégasque Myopathie Foundation charity, so all the funds will be transferred to this association.
For the Only Watch cause Franck Muller has always presented one of its chef-d’oeuvres. For this occasion the Muller brand has decided to bring out one of its most outstanding watches, mens Franck Muller Crazy Hours replica. The watch is an ultimate refutation of the accepted watch reading rules. It reflects an innovative approach in mechanism and a new philosophy in order of time. The numerals of the Crazy Hours’ dial are placed in an unusual order of how everyone associates their own values. The hour hand follows the minute hand each time when it fulfills its revolution. It’s a new and crazy way to read the time.
The special dial represents the Swiss residents of Monaco, who belong to the communities in the Rocher. The colours which are used for this watch are associated with the Helvetica and at the same time with the Monte-Carlo principality.With this “crazy” timepiece Franck Muller hopes to show the creativity of Swiss replica watch making and his pride of belonging to this unique heritage.
The Long Island replica watch, driven by its rectangular shape and numbers has become a leading collection of Franck Muller.
From the eye-catching Color Dreams numerals, to the elegant diamonds adoring the case and from the colored alligator straps to the flawless dial, every single detail of the Long Island has been designed with care and attention to match the beauty of its owner.
The architecture of the yellow gold fake FM Long Island pays tribute to the Art Deco movement in a new vision of the Novecento style.
Fine finishes and tasteful overall design make this stunning timepiece from Franck Muller an item of exceptional quality and irresistible prestigious allure while offering sublime precision and reliability for a complete high-end Franck Muller Long Island replica wristwatch
For our take on Franck Muller’s True collection, read here.
The project was to put a gen dial in a Gen Dial Franck Muller Long Island replica watch. The dials weren’t in perfect shape, they have a few scratches here and there and I had to touch up the lume in a couple places, but overall, between the color of the dial and the brightness of the lume, the imperfections are hard to see to the naked eye. Both dials had holes for a date at 6, so I ordered an eta 2824 with a date wheel for 6 o’clock once I verified it would fit. I got the watch from watcheden for cheap ($88) and two really nice copper-colored dials off ebay. One of the dials was lumed and the other was not.
After the movement holder was done, the rest was pretty simple. I cut down the stem so the crown would fit tight, buttoned everything up and checked for rattles. Luckily there is a lip inside the caseback that holds the steel plate pretty tight up against the case, so there isn’t any rattling of the holder inside the movement.
Here’s a collage showing the steps involved in making the movement holder: You can also see my very crappy attempt at perlage in the last two pics. Overall it’s not quite up to swiss standards, but it works. Grinding the outside of the blank to fit the case, grinding a lip inside the hole to hold the movement while allowing the rotor to spin, cutting out two nubs at the proper depth for the movement screws to hold, and polishing the piece up.
I had to install the tallest cannon pinion/hour wheel combo possible to get the right clearance, and I also shaved off the second hand pin and capped the cannon pinion with a small bit of polished steel to match the gen.
The finished shape of the hands I made is not all that close to the gen, in my opinion. The ones I made are rather thicker than the gen and the overall proportions are different, but I sort of like them this way. I might decide to make a pair closer to the gen later on, but for now I’m sticking with these.
I’ll probably keep on the lookout for a gen strap for this one, and as I said before I might end up redoing the hands altogether to get them as close to the gen as I can. Maybe I’ll even try with some white gold sheet metal if I’m feeling daring. The real neat part of the Swiss-made fake Franck Muller Long Island watch is that it has 24mm lugs, so I can switch straps around with my 111 🙂 Also the copper dial is pretty unusual.
