41 “Special One”s will be made, including 1 for “The Special One”
Franck Muller pays tribute to famous football coach (or soccer, if you live in the U.S.) and current Inter (Milan) manager José Mourinho with the launch, in a limited numbered edition of 41, of the Special One, a mechanical self-winding exclusive chronograph. The “Special One” is designed upon Muller’s signature Cintrée Curvex case, crafted in 18k rose gold with a solid brushed finish. The black dial, with Guilloché soleil decoration is detailed in pink gold consistent with the case; an oversized Special 1, also in gold, is in place of the 1-hour marker. With the exception of Special 1, all numbers are luminescent. At 3 is the chronograph minute counter; at 9, the small seconds. At 6 the date is revealed in a small window. Priced at 35,000 EUR.
