FRANC VILA FVn Nº 3 Inaccessible Tourbillon Minute Repeater

Luxury Swiss watch maker FRANC VILA announces one of its novelties for Baselworld 2015: the FVn Nº 3 Inaccessible Tourbillon Minute Repeater. The name Inaccessible has been selected by Franc Vila, the creator of brand, because there won’t be two identical watches in this collection. Every piece will have a unique dial or some details that will make them different.

The inaugural piece of the collection will be presented in Baselworld 2015 and is the first platinum watch ever made by FRANC VILA. This material is not normally optimal for minute repeaters due to its density, but Franc Vila faced this challenge thanks to his background as a chemist and his acquired knowledge and experience when the brand introduced the SuperLigero collections.
The FVn Nº 3 Inaccessible follows the philosophy of the FVa35 SuperLigero 5-Minute repeater: the clever combination of different densities in the watchcase and in the parts of the movement in charge of the transmission of the sound. This technical approach delivers an astounding sonority thus allowing the use of dense materials for the construction of the watchcase.
One of the characteristics of the FVn Nº 3 Inaccessible is the mechanism to activate the minute repetition. Instead of the use of a lever to start the repeater Franc Vila chose the rotation of the bezel, thus achieving a more balanced design from an aesthetics point of view. The FVn Nº 3 is also the first tourbillon with minute repeater water resistant to 100 meters ever made.

The FVn Nº 3 Inaccessible pays homage to master watchmakers and Swiss savoir-faire while successfully achieving the goal of combining the most elevated classical complications with elegant and contemporary aesthetics.
