We at DiveIntoWatches.com recently discovered another new dive watch for 2015 that we somehow didn’t catch when we were in Baselworld. The Franc Vila Intrepido Diver Superligero (Ref. FVi62) is the indie brand’s first attempt at creating a model with a divers’ bezel. The watch comes with a titanium case offering 300 meters of water resistance, an integrated helium release valve, a display back and a black rubber strap with folding clasp. Both color versions (with blue or red highlights, pictured below) are available with a black DLC or regular brushed finish, and each is limited to 88 pieces.
The rotating bezel appears to be operated by a separate crown at 4 o’clock (although it looks like it could be operated manually as well, since it is only partially covered by the case) and can be blocked with the locking mechanism at 8 o’clock. Surprisingly, the hands seem to be made of a transparent material.
The Franc Vila Intrepido Diver Superligero is powered by the brand’s FV62 caliber with power reserve display and (judging by these first released press images) also features a big date display at 12 o’clock; list prices are $15,000 for the standard titanium versions and $16,500 for the DLC versions.
