Franc Vila FVi17 Chrono Bicompax Intrepido

The FVi17 Chrono Bicompax Intrepido inherits the second evolution of the unique FRANC VILA watch case introduced with the FVi Nº 7 Tourbillon Intrepido, respecting the original philosophy of creating extremely resistant watches for modern active lifestyles.
