STIMA VALUE INDEX – FRANC VILA INACCESSIBLE
This flying tourbillon combined with a minute repeater is distinguished by some unique characteristics, starting with the choice of platinum for the case and bezel. While admittedly very prestigious, this material is rarely used in this type of watch, since its density makes is less than ideal for propagating sound.
But Franc Vila’s background in chemistry together with his years of accumulated know-how enabled him to solve the problem by combining alloys of varying density, for making both the case and the parts relating to sound diffusion.
Another innovative feature is that the minute repeater is wound not by the traditional slidepiece, but instead by rotating the bezel. Each timepiece is unique. Mechanical hand-wound FV No.3 calibre, 315 parts, 29 jewels, 21,600 vph, flying tourbillon with minute repeater, up to 90-hour power reserve.
