David Beckham has signed with Breitling, so there is competition in the world of athletic endorsements and high-end men`s watches. Perhaps that is why Franck Muller has decided to make his first ever collection for a famous footballer. Cristiano Ronaldo has been honored by the watchmaker with a series of seven top-of-the-line watches. It is a first for the watch maker and a natural endorsement for the soccer superstar.
Cristiano Ronaldo is at the peak of his career. Men love him for his daring play on the field and women love him for his rugged good looks. He is famous the world over and this relationship is sure to give Franck Muller and his watch collection a boost in visibility.
The featured watch showcases Franck Muller`s classic 18k rose gold oval case. It is bold and it stands out, just like Cristiano Ronaldo`s play on the soccer pitch. The oblong shape of the watch is sure to capture attention for its unique shape.
Classic yellow gold is wrapped around the oval case and stark gloss black takes up the rest of the watch. This juxtaposition is sleek and timeless. It also captures the eye and it will let the world know that you embody a rugged elegance.
The oval design lead the numbers to be different sizes inside the watch. The numbers 11, 1, 7 and 5 are the largest on the face of the watch while a centered 12 and 6 sit the smallest. The rest of the numbers have been squeezed out of the sides but that is not the feature that stands out on this collectable time piece. The large number seven, in the bottom left hand corner, is inlaid with diamonds. It is Cristiano Ronaldo`s number and the watch will not let you forget that fact.
The hands of the time piece revolve around a perpetual calendar inside the hour marks. There are separate, smaller hands that point to the date, the day of the week and the month. The watch is both functional and stylish.
The case back is a work of art in itself. A likeness of Cristiano Renaldo is etched into the gold with perfect precision and next his likeness is a signature. Franck Muller`s classic marks are also etched into the case back giving the time piece authenticity. So, fix the classic black leather straps around your wrist and feel the build quality, masculine design and functionality of this collector`s item.
