On the occasion of the first Spanish football World Cup win, Franc Vila has issued a special edition of its enthusiastically received Cobra collection.
The new EVOS 8 Cobra "Estrella Roja" watch proudly exposes the Spanish squad colors and a star. These elements pay tribute to the sweeping victory, which was a long-held dream for an army of football fans from Spain.
The release of the spectacular Franc Vila watch has been strictly limited to 88 pieces.
The Franc Vila “Cobra” collection has been developed for watch enthusiasts who opt for extreme life styles, including exploration of the sub-aquatic world.
Its new spectacular member employs an appealing case, distinguished by its “esprit unique” shape. The watch is framed by an elliptic and circular bezel. It is crafted from blackened DieHard Extreme Steel and carbon-fiber. The last-mentioned material is also used for the inserts, which serve to protect the watch even in most extreme conditions.
The watch case is endowed with a chronograph start/stop pusher, located at 2 o’clock. The chronograph reset pusher is placed at 4 o’clock. Both front and back sides of the watch are fitted with sapphire crystals, treated with a double-sided anti-reflective coating. The Cobra watch boasts 300- meter water-resistance.
The "Estrella Roja" watch, meaning “red star” when translated from Spanish, is constructed around a top-quality mechanical self-winding movement - Caliber FV8Ch. This mechanism incorporates the “Gold Concept Rotor”, an exclusive creation of the house. The movement provides a 42-hour power reserve. It brings to life the essential functions of hours, minutes and seconds, complimented by those of chronograph and big date.
The new Franc Vila watch shows off a guilloche-type carbon fiber dial. The “Big Date” is presented via an exhibition window in the upper part of the dial. The chronograph minutes counter is located at 6 o’clock. It is joined by the chronograph hours sub-dial, nestled at 9 o’clock. The seconds indication is arranged at 3 o’clock.
The new Franc Vila EVOS 8 Cobra "Estrella Roja" watch is teamed with a read and yellow-stitched black crocodile leather strap fitted with a deployant buckle. Additionally, it is accessorized with a rubber sport strap.
