FRANC VILA FVa61 SuperLigero Automatic Big Date

FRANC VILA introduces a new timepiece in its SuperLigero Concept collection, named FVa61 SuperLigero Automatic.

With the introduction in 2008 of the FVa Nº 6, a skeleton tourbillon with 5 days of power reserve, Franc Vila inaugurated his well known and successful collection named SuperLigero Concept. The concept consists in the development of different masterpieces with the characteristic of being very light while extremely robust in order to provide to the Haute Horlogerie lovers a collection of contemporary and complicated watches able to withstand exigent sport activities.

The common element in all the timepieces introduced under the SuperLigero concept is the use of Lightnium, an aluminium-lithium based alloy used in state of the art aeronautical engineering. Its main characteristics are lightness combined with high tensile strength, allowing structural weight reduction and an increase in the elastic modulus performance. These characteristics allow for the development of very robust movements like the FV Nº 6 skeleton tourbillon or the FV Nº Cuatro SuperLigero chronograph tourbillon.

The new timepiece is equipped with the FV61 manufactured automatic calibre, made in Lightnium, and boasts a “big date” with a double window calendar clearly displaying the date, a useful indication, easily readable, that people like to use.
