The A-Z of luxury watches: Nautical-inspired watches for the seafaring gentleman (and woman).

TATLER FOCUS

Dedicated to the seafaring world, the Franck Muller Vanguard Yachting line is dominated by elegant nautical-inspired details like the historical wind rose, the colour blue, and rubber lined straps. Variations are aplenty, with choices ranging from a time-only model to an elegant two-counter chronograph, a sporty flying tourbillon, and a stunning Tourbillon Gravity with the curved crossbar tourbillon bridge and an oversized tourbillon carriage made in the form of the wind rose.

Executed in aluminium, the carriage is also anodised to a rich blue hue that melds perfectly with the colour theme of the collection. These watches exude a cool sporty spirit irrespective of case material—rose gold, titanium, or stainless steel—and complement the classic Vanguard with their nautical inclinations.
