AVENTURINE, A RARE AND EXCLUSIVE MATERIAL

Aventurine is a very fine material and therefore quite delicate to work with, which explains its relative rarity in watchmaking and its popularity with collectors and timepiece enthusiasts. There is a high risk of breakage and cracking, and using it for a complete dial requires patience and dexterity on the part of our watchmakers during assembly. Finally, we select only the finest dials, according to criteria of colour, depth and brilliance.

BETWEEN MYTHS AND MYSTERIES

The exact period of its creation and the identity of the person who discovered it or perfected its manufacturing process remain unclear, not to say unknown, shrouding aventurine in a veil of mystery.

While some believe that aventurine dates back to ancient Egypt, the most common rumour has it that it was discovered by chance in the 17th century on the island of Murano, near Venice, famous for its intricate work and mastery of glass-blowing. It is said to have originated there as a result of a glassmaker's clumsy handling of copper filings, which he accidentally dropped - "all'avvenura" - into the traditional incandescent mixture of silica, soda and lime.

A POETIC DIAL...

Aventurine's unique composition, its striking contrasts and the captivating vision it provides for the observer make it the ideal material for the dial of this MISSION TO EARTH - COSMOS edition, imagined as a window onto a night sky sparkling with stars.

The dark, intense blue of the dial contrasts with the hundreds of sparkling, golden inclusions that give the whole thing the appearance of a precious stone.

... STIMULATING THE IMAGINATION

This mysterious material has a very powerful, even disturbing, evocative power and, like meteorites for example, arouses the curiosity and interest of watch lovers and collectors, most of whom remain eternal children.

Captivating, enchanting and enigmatic because of the mystery surrounding its composition, aventurine has a texture and depth that you could spend hours observing, halfway between technique and reverie, letting yourself be carried away into another world.

UN CADRAN ENVOUTANT ET MYSTÉRIEUX

Un cadran mystérieux, profond, oscillant entre le bleu et le noir, ponctué d’une multitude d’inclusions dorées qui pétillent comme autant d’étoiles lointaines et éblouissantes. Une magie visuelle qui opère d’autant plus facilement que nous avons fait le choix d’un cadran dépourvu d’index, entièrement dédié au rêve et se laissant admirer dans son intégralité, simplement animé par les aiguilles flottant comme en apesanteur dans la matière.

Clin d’oeil de Frank : la célèbre devise « même une montre arrêtée donne l’heure exacte deux fois par jour ! » est gravée dans le rehaut.

RECYCLED TITANIUM CASE

Used in aeronautics and aerospace, our 70% recycled titanium offers performance strictly equivalent to that of virgin material, while significantly reducing its carbon impact. Lightweight, robust and waterproof, the case of MISSION TO EARTH - COSMOS by Frank sans C is perfectly suited to all your daily constraints. A real everyday tool watch, built to last. A wink from Frank : The famous motto "Even a stopped watch tells the right time twice a day" is engraved in french in the bezel.

MODIFIED AUTOMATIC CALIBER

Reliable and easy to maintain, the Japanese-made Miyota movement has a 42-hour power reserve and beats at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The oscillating weight has been completely reworked, with particularly meticulous finishing - polished chamfers, micro-blasted and brushed alternations, and deep markings - giving the whole a highly technical aesthetic.
