Mr. Franc Vila experience developing high resistant skeleton watches, synonymous with shock resistant, innovation, lightness and design, led him to chose for this evolution a complex movement case with a Unibody «case- baseplate».
The unit body design construction made the watch lighter and more rigid. Mr. Franc Vila chooses grade 5 Titanium for the Middle-case-skeletonised-baseplate, because it is a technological material with the required rigidity for the reliability and strong rigidity necessary for the movement to be used even, under extreme conditions.
The bridges are also crafted in grade 5 titanium. Both front and back bezels are made from sapphire crystal creating a glass-box protecting the movement.
The philosophy of the movement combines respect for longevity and precision with classical watchmaking tradition and contemporary technological in architectural design. The modern architecture of the movement avoid unnecessary complexity thanks to a rational approach and mechanical solutions. Each watch is finished to the highest standards. All finishing and decoration is by hand with inward angles, wheels and pinions are fully flat and highly polished by hand, screws are also polished by hand to achieve the highest possible level of surface polish.
