Franck Muller’s Vanguard Vegas Racing celebrates the Formula 1 debut in Sin City.  

Designed in collaboration with Neiman Marcus, the Vanguard Vegas Racing combines the heart pounding exhilaration of F1 single-seaters screaming down the strip at 215 MPH, with the excitement of a high-stakes night out at the casino.

The monocoque coachwork of the new Vanguard is crafted in forged carbon fiber – the same material used to build F1 cars. Each case is precisely sculpted by a series of CNC machines then polished by hand, transforming the solid block of forged carbon into the signature Vanguard style. During these processes, the unique patterns of the forged carbon emerge to form waves and layers making each example of these watches truly unique.

Under the sapphire windshield of this wrist-racer is one of Franck Muller’s more playful complications, the patented Roulette Wheel. It springs to life with the simple push of a button integrated into the crown to quickly spin round the dial and randomly land on the lucky number. Under the hood lies a beautifully embellished engine that redlines at 28,800 BPH and will run for just over 40 hours on a full tank.

Vanguard Vegas Racing marries the ethos of motorsport to the thrill of the gaming in a remarkably accurate expression of function and fashion that melds the worlds of luxury watchmaking, high-stakes gaming, and world-class motorsports into a singularly expressive timepiece.

Even the colorway is tied to Las Vegas with the blue, red, and yellow accents taken directly from the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign.  

Only 23 of the Vegas Racing Vanguards will be created at Franck Muller’s Geneva Manufacture and are now available exclusively at Neiman Marcus with a retail price of $45,000.
