FRANC VILA FVi Nº 62 INTREPIDO SuperLigero DIVER

By TLex This bold looking beast is the Intrepido SuperLigero Diver Titanium Ref. FVi Nº 62 from Franc Vila, a new addition to the popular Intrepido family that has been purpose-built for the ocean, and is the high-end Swiss luxury watchmakers' debut divers model!



The 42mm x 18mm (thick) x 55mm (lug-to-lug) case has a Titanium construction in FV's trademark oval shape with signature bulging sides; which work pretty well as a diver design especially when accentuated by the 3 large protruding crowns.

Divers features include: a Sapphire crystal, a rotational divers bezel that can be locked via the crown at 8 o'clock (I think this can also possibly be used to rotate it), a Helium Escape Valve (not sure if its placement) and of course all screwdown and locking crowns as well as the Sapphire exhibition caseback. Water-resistance is to 300 meters.



There are 2 color variants available which are blue or red, each of them coming with either a brushed Titanium finished or Black DLC-treated Titanium case - limited to 88 pieces of each. The semi-openwork dials are in black with said colors used for all the elements such as hands, markers, text and the power-reserve indicator.

The Intrepido SuperLigero Diver Titanium is powered by a Franc Vila FV62 caliber automatic movement with central hours, minutes and seconds, a large double-window date display, a circular Power Reserve Indicator with 48 hours or power-reserve.



It comes on a black rubber divers strap with Titanium Folding clasp. MSRP is 15000USD (Ti) or 16500USD (DLC).
