You might not know who Franc Vila is but doing a little reading we learned that he is a Spaniard that has made an impact in the watch world ever since his debut at BaselWorld 2005. He introduced an extraordinary innovative timepiece, the FV01, during that year.  Other companies have tried to emulate the watch, but were unsuccessful. According to his site,
