Franc Vila Skeleton Monopusher Chronograph Tourbillon  0 Comments


This new brand named after the founder himself was in Singapore this week to meet with local watch collectors and showcase his watches. While on hand was a very wide selection of watches, I chose to photograph the Skeleton Monopusher Chronograph Tourbillon as it was a dramatic looking timepiece. All the Vila watches are encased in an enormously large and tall case which is distinctive for its dial style. On the watch here, the chronograph module is found on the dial and if you look carefully enough, the column wheel can be seen at the top of the dial. The subdials do not show off any scales if one operated the chronograph but it looks like the function is more for aesthetic purposes than to be seriously used to time anything. The tourbillon cage is very well made and has an interesting motif. Overall the watch is massive and imposing. It lists for S$500k and would be only be within the reach of the truly well heeled.

Check out my images here to see for yourself whether the watch is worth its asking price.
