FVi N°8 Tourbillon Intrepido SuperLigero Skeleton

The FVi No.8 Tourbillon INTREPIDO SuperLigero Skeleton pursues the concept first introduced five years ago. In 2011, the INTREPIDO design, a second evolution of the Franc Vila case, also adopted the SuperLigero approach. The association of ultra-thin materials and proven sturdiness are the starting point for these products. Their common denominator is “Lightnium”, an aluminium and lithium alloy used in aeronautical engineering and picked up by the watchmaking both in development movements and in the aesthetic expression of these creations. The FV No.8i features the famous bezel with its combined elliptical and circular shape that has become a brand signature. It is equipped with a hand-wound tourbillon movement with Lightnium bridges, silicon escape-wheel and lever, as well as an oscillating weight adorned with Côtes de Genève – all combining to prove that the brand is uncompromising on both technical and aesthetic fronts. 8-piece limited edition.
