Review: Franck Muller – Vanguard Carbon V 45T CS Racing

Reminiscent of the Conquistador Grand Prix of Singapore from 2009, the similarly Formula One-inspired Vanguard Carbon V 45T CS Racing appeals to fans of showy sports timepieces.

Fired up with a black and red colour scheme that evokes a virile mix of danger and sexiness, this watch is clad in carbon fibre, a material commonly found in F1 racecars. Other racing motifs like the chequered flag symbols on the dial, and pedal-style pushers on the chronograph model are de rigueur yet lend an assured, dynamic quality. Available in 28 pieces for the classic automatic version, 18 pieces for the chronograph (pictured), and three pieces with carrousel complication.  

Price: S$29,190 (incld GST)

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.
