Franck Muller makes watches. Or the company named after him does. They are based in Geneva, Switzerland but have a dedicated store in Aspen, Colorado.
Mr. Muller was known as the “Master of Complications” — because his creations were very complicated — many have several dials and mechanisms to tell more than just time. They are works of art, if you like that style. I looked at the tag hanging on one in the window — $21,000. That is a complicated thing to grasp.
Yes, Aspen attracts people who can afford more than one of those timepieces. Maybe one for each day of the week.
I prefer the simple. (When I’d have to take out a 30‐year loan just for a watch, something would be very wrong in my little world.)
