FVa Nº 1 “El Bandido”

This calibre is one of the first hand-made and hand-decorated FRANC VILA’s own movements. Equipped with a flying tourbillon with 5 days power reserve, this movement made history adopting an aesthetic shape for the first time: the “esprit unique shape”. This movement is equipped with advanced systems and technologies that turn this piece into a very contemporary tourbillon.

The “Inertial Moment Control” technology allows a precise adjustment through inertial moment, and the “Wheels Differential System” is a radically new spherical differential system used to wind the power reserve, with wheel arms directly incorporating the planetary gears. This innovative system allow a fast planetary winding function reduces the time to wind this exclusive timepiece by two-thirds.
