FRANC VILA FVa15 Column Regulator Automatique

Introduced in Baselworld 2009, the FVa15 Column Regulator joined the FRANC VILA collection with the aim to create a contemporary interpretation of this classic complication used by watchmakers to set time in the watches.

 

This is also the first FRANC VILA timepiece using meteorite in the dial, combined with sapphire glass. While maintaining the characteristic “esprit unique” shape in the watchcase this timepiece stands out due to the asymmetrical column design of the dial, which allows to see the movement beating inside.

 

The timekeeper is equipped with the FRANC VILA FV15 automatic calibre, which features regulator function indicating hours, minutes and seconds, and the additional indication of date in a window in the dial.
