AC/DC have “Rockstar charisma” 

As for the watches, their manufacturer Franck Muller has said that these AC/DC timepieces: “epitomize precision craftsmanship and Rockstar charisma” and are “housed in a sleek Vanguard 43 mm tonneau-shaped case with an automatic movement and a date window at 6 o’clock”. 

Muller who boasts clients such as Elton John, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kanye West, David Beckham, and Floyd Mayweather Jr, also added: “The dial features Franck Muller’s signature numerals in red, a vibrant tribute to AC/DC’s legacy”.

“The centre dial is engraved like a vinyl, reminiscent of their debut album High Voltage from 1975, and a guitar strings-inspired imprint pays tribute to Angus Young (AC/DC). These timepieces serve as a direct link to the band’s iconic history”, he also wrote.

Muller also stated: “The centrepiece is the AC/DC Logo with the “50 Years” tagline, celebrating the band’s golden Anniversary in style. At the same time, the deployment clasp adorned with the iconic lightning bolt sign ensures a secure fit.
