Franc Vila celebrates Spain’s World Cup win with “Estrella Roja” commemorative timepiece

Jul 27, 2010

Franc Vila recently introduced a new timepiece to its successful “Cobra” collection, to celebrate Spain’s first World Cup win. Named “Estrella Roja” (Spanish for “red star”), this limited edition includes only 88 pieces, as is customary for the brand, and features the Spanish squad colors and a star commemorating its triumph.

“I am extremely happy with the achievement of the Spanish football squad in South Africa,” said the company’s founder and namesake, a native Spaniard. “This victory has been a dream for a long time in Spain and I am very proud of the football players that have made this dream a reality. I decided to create a special collection commemorating our first football championship with a star in place of the number one, and I hope to add more stars in the future.”

The “Cobra” collection from Franc Vila was specifically designed for aficionados of extreme sports. Built to be water-resistant up to 300 meters, these timepieces were created for intense water activities. The carbon fiber inserts help ensure the protection of the watch for even the most rigorous sports.

The latest addition to the collection, the FV EVOS 8, is both elegant and sporty. It features a blackened titanium “Esprit Unique” case and blackened steel and carbon-fiber elliptical and circular shaped bezel, along with a black crocodile leather strap with red and yellow stitching and a deployant buckle. A rubber sport strap is also included. It has automatic mechanical movement with chronograph functions and a “big date” with a double-window calendar, clearly displaying the date.

Franc Vila timepieces are available at King Jewelers in Nashville, TN and Aventura, FL. For more information, please visit and
