The Franc Vila Tourbillon Planetaire watch is an exceptional example of creative haute horlogerie.  Combining the unique aesthetic concept of design pioneered by Franc Vila with a masterful mechanical movement that offers a brilliant interpretation of Breguet's most illustrious invention, the Tourbillon Planetaire offers collectors of exceptional timepieces an object of true rarity and horological distinction.

Exceptional mechanical watchmaking creations warrant an equally remarkable presentation.  The Franc Vila Tourbillon Planetaire watch satisfies this requirement with a signature Esprit Unique case produced in white gold, red gold, or in a particularly sporty variant--Black Die Hard Extreme Steel.

 The 52 x 45mm dimensions satisfy the demands of the contemporary customer, while maximizing the dynamic interplay between finely brushed and richly polished surfaces.  A diverse array of dial materials, including mother of pearl, or woven carbon enable the client to obtain a Tourbillon Planetaire timepiece that exactly suits their preferences.  The diverse dial range shares in common certain characteristics, namely, the distinctive apertures that reveal the complex mechanism, a central section with hobnail decoration, and polished skeleton hour and minute hands.

The Franc Vila Tourbillon Planetaire watch is brought to glorious life by the hand-decorated and assembled Calibre Franc Vila No. 1 TV.  Shaped in the same form as the case itself, this hand-wound caliber with a 5-day power reserve showcases a flying tourbillon that completes a revolution on its axis every 60 seconds; a proprietary Inertial Moment Control system enables exacting adjustment for optimum chronometric precision.  The balance, equipped with adjustable masselotte weights in gold, completes 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour.  The pleasurable act of hand-winding is greatly simplified by a spherical differential system with wheel arms that directly incorporate the planetary gears; the result is a reduction in winding time by a factor of two-thirds. A power reserve indicator shows the status of remaining barrel tension, and adds another dimension of technical fascination to an already prestigious luxury watchmaking opus.  A sapphire crystal exhibition window in the caseback reveals the fine finishing of the bridges, which include beveled edges, and polished screw and jewel settings.
