Franc Vila: Infinity Sign
“My clock is me,” the young Spaniard Frank Vila, the founder of the same time brand, is proudly following Louis XIV. Watchmaker, entrepreneur, philosopher, designer and basic education – biochemist, he at some point in his life threw a calm career to create such hours that no one had previously done. He himself came up with the shape of the housing in the form of an inverted eight, which was called EscPit Unique, that is, a “unique image”. Called indiscreet. So and the watch Franc Vila is not for shye.
Franc Vila has been founded on the wave of the popularity of classical mechanics in 2004. And the young author of the concept took advantage of all the advantages of the “hourly boom” to immediately imagine a new brand of power. He immediately refused to be completely simple, basic hours, leaving the topic to traditional manufacturers. The Franc Vila collection is divided into two types: just complication (complication) and large modern complications (Montre Contemporaine Grand Complication). Naturally, the first model of the brand was the most difficult clock, which at that time could submit collectors and connoisseurs of status mechanics, – planetary tourbillon. Frank Vila has designed and controlled the entire process of creating a FVA caliber No. 1 Planetary Tourbillon. The following bestseller (preserving this status and today) has become the FVA9 model equipped with a FV9 manufactory caliber, which, in addition to an indication of hours, minutes and seconds, is also supplemented by a day indication module, dates and phases of the moon. Of course, it is necessary to get used to such an intensive “information panel”, however, the separation on the contrasting indication is visually very convenient and does not cause the feeling that the clock is overloaded.

Due to the combination of various surfaces: Titanium with black PVD, carbon and acrylic – Frank Vila has achieved exceptional readability of the dial only due to the invoice, not colors. The clock was exposed exclusively uncompromising – on the lunar calendar Franc Vila was not a single asterisk!
