Famiglia Vaglio, a new, local luxury watch brand in Greenville, has released its first collection of Swiss-made timepieces. The two watches comprising the inaugural collection – The Eterno and The Pilota – are on sale now via the company’s website:

“These timepieces are a reflection of the passion and ingenuity the Vaglio family emulates,” said Bob (Vaglio) Barreto, founder of Famiglia Vaglio. “We’re looking forward to sharing our family’s legacy with others.”

Designed in Greenville and crafted in Switzerland, Famiglia Vaglio is committed to delivering value over price, quality over quantity and innovation and exclusivity that will last for generations. 

The Eterno

The Eterno, which, translated from Italian, means “Eternity,” is the first in a series of exclusive collector watches. Limited to only 500 pieces, each Eterno watch will be registered to its owner by Famiglia Vaglio. 

The Eterno features Swiss automatic self-winding movement, a polished 316L stainless steel case and sapphire crystal. The watch is 40mm with visible movement, a leather strap, a double butterfly buckle and is rated at five atmospheres. The Eterno timepiece is available for purchase for $585.

The Pilota

The Pilota, which, translated from Italian, means “Pilot or Race Driver,” is a unique new look in sport watches. It is matte black throughout and machined in hardened 316L Stainless steel.

This watch features Swiss made quartz movement and K-1 glass crystal. The Pilota is 40mm, is rated at five atmospheres and costs $195.

A dedicated portion of each sale is donated to established charitable organizations that are connected to the Vaglio team’s personal experiences. These include The Parkinson’s Foundation and The American Cancer Society.
