Franc Vila Reveals Fvt28 Jumping Hours Ivy Edition

Feb 22, 2010
The prominent watchmaking house Franc Vila is proud to announce its new horological accomplishment, named Fvt28 Jumping Hours "Ivy Edition". A distinctively feminine interpretation, the new Franc Vila watch accommodates a self-winding Fvt28 calibre movement, which provides functions of jumping hours, minutes and seconds.

Embellished with 27 jewels, this mechanism incorporates an exclusive Franc Vila "Gold Concept" rotor. The movement offers a 42-hour power reserve.

The new brainchild from Franc Vila employs a case, sculptured in DieHard Extreme steel. Produced in the signature “Esprit Unique” shape, it is fitted with an elliptical and circular bezel. The watch has been manufactured in a variety of case versions.

The blue interpretation is endowed with a bezel and horns, enhanced by a subtle interplay of 387 pure TW VVS diamonds and two sapphires. The overall weight of the dazzling diamonds constitutes 2.45 carats. The white variation, meanwhile, features a bezel, with the inner surface paved with 91 diamonds and 2 sapphires. The weight of the scintillating diamonds totals to 0.7 carats.

The dial and case-back of the Franc Vila watch are both protected by sapphire crystals, glare-proofed on both sides. This timepiece is submersible to 100 meters.

The brand’s novelty is available with two dial executions: blue or white mother-of-pearl. It depicts an alluring “IVY” floral motif. The display is outfitted with hour-markers, adorned with 8 sapphires or 8 diamonds. The jumping hour window can be found at 12 o’clock. It is kept company by the small seconds counter, placed at 6 o’clock.

The Franc Vila Fvt28 Jumping Hours “Ivy Edition” watch is affixed to a blue or white hand-stitched alligator leather strap, which terminates in a DieHard Extreme steel buckle. The timepiece is to be launched in a limited edition of 88 items.
