The Technology of Franc Vila Watches
The Franc Vila collection offers the latest technology in time precision. The Vila clientele spans the world and insists on chic and contemporary watch styles. Vila reinvented the demands for the watch market by his original designs and his “timely” entrance into the luxury timepiece market.
Franc Vila, an established Spanish entrepreneur, continues to uphold a high standard in the complexity and design of his luxury watch accoutrements.
Franc Vila developed an exclusive design called the Esprit Unique or “Unique Spirit” which is his original watch template. The signature figure-eight shape makes all of Vila’s designs recognizable and associated to the Franc Vila name.
With additional details and tweaks of the internal elements, Vila’s watches are individually distinct from one another.
Collections and Components
The components of the Franc Vila collections are all individually broken down to external looks.
The case, dial, strap, mechanism, rotos, screws, crown and hands are pieced together in a dance of gears. After his introduction of the Esprit Unique, Vila came out with a collection in 2006:
- the FV5
- a universal time zone
- the FV8
- a large date chronograph, and
- the FVa8QA, a perpetual calendar with large date
Vila’s explanation for naming his pieces with numerical emphasis corresponds to their position in his collections; additionally, streamlining the effort collectors execute to find rare pieces. The idea is not to regenerate traditions, but to reinvent classics.
The modernity and quality of his watches comes from market comparisons on all top tier watch companies.
Vila’s model of ‘open manufacturing’ meant becoming autonomous in his production procedures and avoiding mass production at all costs. This allows for close contact and collaboration with his constructor and for direct quality assurance. Therefore, encapsulating the demand for elegance and superiority.
