Haute Time, the ultimate resource for luxury timepiece aficionados, is flooded with new content from Basel World 2012 including exclusive video interviews. Franc Vila currently graces the page with a presentation of his latest models. Haute Living Co-publisher and Haute Time curator Seth Semilof met with Vila to get an inside look at some of the brand’s newest developments for women and for men.

Vila began by introducing one of his most unique and special presentations yet, the Fvt #1 Planetair. “This year, I am excited to introduce the first tourbillon that was created especially for ladies,” said Vila. The black and red tourbillon timepiece—Vila’s favorite colors—is sporty and edgy, but still feminine. It features a matte black dial and is limited to only eight pieces.

Moving on to the men’s tourbillon, Vila gave Semilof an in-depth look at the Superligero Tourbillon Intrepido. “For the first time you have here a movement that is fully, fully made in a kind of carbon…the result is a very light watch,” said Vila. Regardless of its weight, the piece is as durable and strong as all of Vila’s creations are. Only eight pieces of this new design exist.

Gaining an inside look at the industry’s star timepieces directly from the company CEOs demonstrates the respect and passion Haute Time reserves for luxury watches and their corresponding brands.
