Franck Muller honors World Class Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo
By Romit Jethwaney — February 27, 2013
Cristiano Ronaldo, a disciplined athlete with his striking
performance and skills, has been rightly distinguished as one of the finest
football players of all times. With an impressive trail of records and honors
that follow him, he has yet another reason to celebrate. The House of Franck
Muller paid homage to this prolific Portuguese with an exclusive Perpetual
Calendar Bi-Retro Chrono CR7 Limited edition.
A special interview that gathered Ronaldo and the master
watchmaker Franck Muller, included speaking less about football and more on
"My life revolves around time and everything I do depends on
it. Even on a football pitch, everything is decided within a fraction of
seconds. The times when we are on the leading side and need to freeze the
result, every minute seems like an hour.
I already have four or five Franck Muller watches, but never
had a Perpetual Calendar in my collection. The fact that Franck Muller has
dedicated this exclusive edition to me makes it even more special.
Both of us truly believe in our abilities and potential. My
career goal is to scale greater heights and perpetuate my feats. I feel this
watch very aptly embodies our values.” said Cristiano.
Holding a self-winding mechanical movement, the timepiece
has bi-retrograde fly-back hands for days of the week and date. In addition, it
also displays 30-minute and hour chronograph counters and bears the moon phase
The diamond-encrusted number 7 adds just the right bling to
the black lacquered dial. The 18-carat gold case carries a special engraving of
the player’s silhouette and signature on the back. With only seven opulent
watches made under this edition, all of them have already been sold to private collectors
at a exuberant price of USD 144,330.
