During this year’s edition of prestigious Basel fair, FRANC VILA presented a new automatic tourbillon calibre with alarm housed in a 44mm Neo-Alta watchcase: the FVns81 Tourbillon Réveil Manufacture.
While peripheral rotors are not new in the industry FRANC VILA managed to create a new automatic wound tourbillon calibre which happens to be the first movement ever to be equipped with a single-piece peripheral rotor. Peripheral rotors are usually composed by three pieces due to the difficulty to make such a huge one-piece rotor completely flat. The construction in three pieces solves the problem but introduces a technical drawback: the complication to align the three pieces and assembly them in the movement completely levelled. In the FV81 calibre FRANC VILA has achieved the goal for the first time to manufacture the rotor in just one completely flat single piece marking a milestone in the story of High-end Watchmaking.
