Franc Vila FVa35 SuperSonico 5-Minute Repeater Watch - Classic Complication and Contemporary Design

Aug 26, 2010
The challenging world of horology has recently welcomed a new FVa35 SuperSonico 5-Minute Repeater watch, manufactured by Franc Vila.

A part of the brand’s SuperLigero Concept collection, the new watch has been created in complete alignment with its philosophy: it represents a modern and complicated watch, capable of coping with tough sports activities.

This breathtaking creation incorporates a 5-minute repetition complication. The clear sonority is achieved due to a clever combination of Lightnium and titanium, employed in manufacturing of the watch case.

The inner part of the case, which is responsible for transmitting the sound with the lowest possible loss of energy to the outer part, is made of Lightnium, an aluminium-lithium based alloy.

Distinguished by extreme lightness coupled with high-tensile strength, it ensures the structural weight reduction and an increase in the elastic modulus performance. The outer part of the case, meanwhile, is crafted from high-grade DLC blackened titanium.

Both front and back sides of the new Franc Vila watch are fitted with sapphire crystals. The case is also equipped with a minute repeater pusher, located at 8 o’clock. The water-resistance of the watch is assured down to 100 meters.

The company’s latest brainchild features no conventional dial. The purpose of such special structure is to reveal all the magic of the self-winding mechanical caliber FV35 movement. The user can admire the intricate workings of its gongs and hammers when the minute repetition is activated by means of the pusher.

This mechanism incorporates a Gold Concept Rotor, an exclusive creation of the house. The power reserve, provided by this caliber, constitutes 42 hours.

The new Franc Vila FVa35 SuperSonico 5-Minute Repeater watch provides the functions of hours, minutes and seconds, complimented by the already described 5-minute repeater.

Keeping the model secured to the wearer’s wrist is a rubber sports strap, finalized by a DLC blackened DieHard Extreme Steel deployment buckle. Alternatively, it can be mounted on a crocodile leather strap, embellished with red stitching.

The issue of the new Franc Vila watch is strictly limited to 88 pieces.
