Despite economy, Franck Muller goes ahead with WPHH 2009

Franck Muller Aeternitas Version II Perpetual Calendar

Tomorrow, January 18th Franck Muller will open the doors on its 12th World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie, coinciding with the SIHH which opens its doors on January 19th. Watch customers, journalist and enthusiasts from around the globe will be able to visit both events.
The WPHH promises to be a spectacular event hosted in the grand Franck Muller Watchland Park. Watchland is located a few minutes from Geneva where the air is pure and the gently sloping terrain on the banks of Lake Geneva is the Village of Genthod, an idyllic setting for a Watch Company. In 1995, Frank Muller moved his headquarters to "les Amandoliers" - a neo-Gothic style manor house designed by famous architect, Edmond Fatio, and built in 1905. The manor house accomodates some of Frank Muller workshops and administrative headquarters. Two new buildings complimenting Edmond Fatio's architectural style as well as two additional structures, terraced gardens are part of Frank Muller's expansive Watchland.
Nine Franck Muller brands will be displayed at this year's WPHH:
Franck Muller, Frank Muller Jewerly, Pierre Kunz, ECW, Rodolphe, Barthelay, Backes & Strauss, Martin Braun and Pierre Michel Golay.
In addition 2009 will be a first for Frank Muller Watchland as it introduces an entire range of new mechanical movements made entirely within the FM group, from an idea to the finished product. A sneak peak at the complications in question include the new automatic FM movement for the column wheel chronograph 3210 CC AT and the automatic movements 2210 & 2211.
