The case is 48mm wide and in DieHard Extreme steel and titanium. The polishing is very good and the watch feels solid despite the complexity of the case. You'll notice that each Franc Vila watch follows the theme of "circles." With many of them all over the case in various forms. Few watches take the concept of curved lines and apply them as well. The movement is an automatic FV15 caliber with the "gold concept" rotor that all automatic Franc Vila watches have. I like that the watch also includes the date, as many watches of this ilk do not.
The Franc Vila Fva15 Column Regulator watch comes in a limited edition of just 88 pieces - which I think is the standard amount for all limited edition Franc Vila watches. The meteorite is applied well, and overall the watch is a good mix of sporty character and sophisticated visual interest. These are nice high fashion luxury watches that stand out with a different look but are comfortable to own.
