Mar 22, 2010
The renowned Cobra collection from the top watch company Franc Vila has been joined by a new timepiece named the FV Evos N 1 "Cobra" Tourbillon Planetaire. The line experienced its world premiere at Baselworld 2009. Its overwhelming success encouraged the brand to enlarge this collection with an item, designed in a classical style. This remarkable novelty is a respectful nod to Frank Vilas beginnings.

According to the brands founder, the Cobra watches became hugely popular with the audience, after they had been unveiled in Basel last year. Therefore, to satisfy the further expectations of the demanding public, the watch company has developed a new mind-blowing complication. Classical elements, introduced in the structure of the new timekeeper, serve as a bridge between the beginnings of the brand and its evolution. The watch is instantly identifiable thanks to the FV N1 tourbillion, the brands signature complication.

The new Cobra Tourbillon Planetaire watch shows an evolution in terms of design: the emblematic "esprit unique" watchcase has been modified to fascinate the enthusiasts of the extreme sports.

Produced for hard and intense water activities, this horological creation is submersible to 300 meters. The Cobra watch is also equipped with carbon fiber inserts, which serve to optimize the level of protection necessary for the most exigent sports.

Ticking inside this innovative FV Evos N 1 "Cobra" Tourbillon Planetaire watch is a manufactory-made FV N1 calibre movement, entirely executed and embellished by hand. Outfitted with a flying tourbillion, this movement boasts a lengthy 5-day power reserve.

The mechanism is endowed with two systems, highly advanced from a technological stand point. The "Inertial Moment Control" system ensures accurate adjustment through inertial moment. The "Wheels Differential System" represents an absolutely new spherical differential system, with wheel arms, which directly incorporate the planetary gears, and is utilized to wind the power reserve.

The breathtaking Frank Villa FV Evos N1 "Cobra" Tourbillon Planetaire watch has been issued as a limited series of 8 pieces sculptured in red gold and 8 pieces, rendered in titanium and DieHard extreme steel.
