Introducing the Franck Muller Watch that Tells the Time Backwards

By Paul Joseph

Swiss watchmaker Franck Muller has continued its tradition of pushing the boundaries of innovation with the launch of the Remember, which boasts the eccentric feature of telling the time backwards.

The hands of the Remember rotates anticlockwise as the time passes and the numerals on the dial are also arranged the ‘wrong’ way around.

The idea of an anticlockwise watch is not entirely new; however, Franck Muller is the first top-end watchmaker to bring it to luxury watchmaking.

The Remember sports the same tonneau shaped case the brand’s similarly avant-garde Crazy Hours timepiece and the dial feature Frank Muller’s signature oversized “exploding” numerals.

The watch dial is entirely set with diamonds or stamped guilloche with sun pattern, finished with 20 layers of lacquer.

Meanwhile the Remember is powered by the automatic FM 2800 INV, which is a modified version of the ETA 2892 for the hands to go counter-clockwise, and it offers a 42-hour power reserve.

The Frank Muller trademark Cintree Curvex case is offered in 18-karat white or rose gold, or stainless steel, and available in two sizes: the large 7880 measures 36mm by 50.4mm, while the small 2850 measures 31mm by 43mm.

Pricing for the Remember by Frank Muller starts at about $11,075.
