FRANC VILA Releases New Timepiece: FVa35 SuperSonico 5 Minutes Repeater

Nov 03, 2010

The latest timepiece unveiled by Franc Vila is a part of the brand’s SuperLigero Concept collection, the FVa35 SuperSonico 5 Minutes Repeater.

One of the key features of the collection is the use of Lightnium, an aluminum-lithium based alloy used in aeronautical engineering. It is a light material with high-tensile strength, which enhances the sound performance of this sporty repeater.

The movement was designed to display a complete view of the sonnerie movement in a skeleton-like view.

In the words of Mr. Franc Vila, the repeater is one of his favorite complications, due to the high complicated mechanism needed to convert time to music. “For this reason I think it is the most poetic complication. In fact, the first FRANC VILA watch, which I made just to satisfy my quest of the perfect watch for me, was a perpetual calendar with minute repeater. I’ve been working since long time in order to create a collection of repeaters, and the FVa35 SuperSonico is the first timepiece in this collection. I am sure that the High-End watchmaking passionates of minute repetition will love this contemporary repeater because of its mechanical beauty and the crafted assembly process, including the fine tuning of the sound performed by the watchmakers to all the timepieces one by one with extremely care and dearness.”
