Exclusive U.S. Timepiece from BaselWorld 2010: Franc Vila’s Cobra “Blue Bandido”

Mar 24, 2010

Exclusive Spanish watchmaker Franc Vila has been a fresh and exciting addition in the world of boutique haute horology as his Franc Vila EVOS Cobra watches amazed BaselWorld 2010 and continued to build on his legacy for exquisite and eccentric timepieces. The most interesting new timepiece was Franc Vila’s Cobra “Blue Bandido,” an exclusive timepiece for the United States.

Franc Vila watches are unmistakable due to their very unique design and shape. The case on these watches is a combination of what Vila calls “DieHard Extreme Steel” and carbon-fiber, with titanium accents.  The watch is water resistant 300 meters and houses an automatic mechanical hand finished Caliber FV8Ch movement with Franc Vila’s unique “Gold Concept Rotor”.   Dial is also a combination of carbon fiber and guilloché (decorated) metal, with chronograph and “Big date” indicators.  Comes on a black rubber strap with steel deployant buckle and as a nice bonus a crocodile leather strap with matching stitchings is also included.  Price will be about $20,000.  All are limited to just 88 pieces.

Holding true to his commitment to produce only exceptional quality mechanical timepieces, Vila works with the most respected manufacturers in the watch industry. His creations often take as long as five years in the development stage. And, they are always highly exclusive due to the limited production dictated by their complexity and by the tremendous amount of handcrafting involved. The entire process truly reflects his philosophy… “not only mine, but a part of me.” Due to the very limited production of these timepieces, there may be slight variances in the details of each watch.

Franc Vila’s Cobra “Blue Bandido,” an exclusive timepiece for the United States, will be available for sale in Fall 2010 exclusively at King Jewelers” href=”http://www.Kings1912.com” target=”_blank”>King Jewelers Nashville and King Jewelers Miami. King Jewelers also repairs and refinishes Franc Vila watches.
