If you’re looking for an unusual, elegant timepiece and you deal in bitcoins, a Franck Muller Encrypto watch is for you. You might already be familiar with Franck Muller Watches? The company, in partnership with Regal Assets, has produced the first fully functional bitcoin watch.
Pairing unique designs and exceptional quality with technology gives the wearer a watch for everyday use, as well as watches at home at a gala fundraiser or a red carpet event, all with bitcoin capabilities.
Franck Muller Bitcoin Watches
What makes these watches truly unique is they are fully functional as a bitcoin wallet and cold storage unit. Each Encrypto watch comes as a two-piece “Deep Cold Storage” set. The dial is etched with a unique public address, and you can send the company your own to use instead of one they generate. You also receive a sealed USB drive with your private key.
The watch functions as a holding area for your bitcoins, but you must use a live wallet and software to withdraw them. Your bitcoins are safe if you damage or lose the watch, but not if you damage or lose the USB drive. Treat the USB the same way you would a large amount of cash, or a physical asset such as gold or diamonds – keep it in a secure place, such as a safe or a safety deposit box.
To utilize the watch, you will need what is known as “live wallet” software:
l To transfer coins to the watch, open the live wallet software and give it the public address shown on the dial of your watch, then send or transfer the coins to this address.
l To check your balance, scan the dial with a live wallet or Bitcoin balance checker app.
l To withdraw funds, you will need to establish your own live wallet. Upon completion, you will need to unseal the USB drive and obtain your private key. Then, you link your private key to your live wallet. When the link is complete, you will be able to transfer coins from the watch to the live wallet.
Here are a few of the Franck Muller watches currently available:
Franck Muller, Regal Assets, Mens 45mm, Polished Case, Speed Limited Edition
This timepiece has Bitcoin Safety Orange CYMK as time markers. The watch is sporty but elegant enough to wear to work. The numbers are hand-painted and hand-brushed in racing alpine white enamel. The public wallet address is laser-etched, and sits as a QR code in its own polished frame. The watch features a “B”, custom designed, within a logo of circuitry, on a dial with matte contrast and an orange top. The strap is natural rubber, with an outer layer of black alligator and custom stitching.
Franck Muller, Regal Assets, Mens 45mm, Diamond Gold Case, Centurion Edition
Named for the legendary Roman Centurion, this watch is a fitting legion bearer.
Studded with 340 diamonds (6.21 carats), the dial features Bitcoin safety orange CYMK and marine white time markers, and numerals hand-painted and hand-brushed in marine white enamel. Featuring the same “B” on a logo of circuitry, and the same laser-etched public wallet address, the watch, in its diamond-studded gold case is opulent enough for any formal affair. A brown, natural rubber band with an outer layer of brown alligator finishes this elegant timepiece.
Franck Muller, Regal Assets, Ladies, Polished Case, Color Dreams Edition
The Color Dreams edition timepiece is unique, with different colored enamel markers for every hour, with different colored hand-painted and hand-brushed numerals. The custom-designed “B” on its circuitry logo and the laser-etched public wallet address is in classic stainless steel, and the crown and dial are the finishing touches for this timepiece.

Encrusted with a total of 340 diamonds (6.21 carats), this watch has different colored markers for every hour, with hand-painted and hand-brushed numerals. The custom-designed “B” on its circuitry logo and the laser-etched QR code sit in polished gold frames, with the crown and dial providing the final finish to this watch.

These four watches are representative samples of the Franck Muller collections; there are more lines than those profiled here.
All of the Encrypto watches come as a two-piece deep cold storage set: the public wallet address is etched on the dial, and a sealed USB drive contains your private key. If you already have a public wallet address, you can provide it to the company when you order your watch and they will use it, instead of generating one for you.
If you’re into Bitcoins and serious bling, these watches are made for you.
