VENI VIDI VICI Grand Pix Collection is inspired from the designs of car racing. The taut lines and simple forms cross and meet each other to generate a powerful and elegant aesthetics. The dial takes up themes from the world of motor sports. The small second hand runs in a counter that looks like a tachometer with its red zone. The minute counter runs from START in the direction of FINISH. VENI VIDI VICI watches are hand crafted in order to secure your privilege to watch time passing on a unique item.
VENI VIDI VICI responds to the fashionable hi-tech materials coming from domains such as aerospace or space by using a millenary technique that has been ted from advances in chemistry: the Chinese lacquer. Invented in Asia more than three thousand years ago, this technique has always been the privilege of the rich and powerful. It was the hallmark of luxury goods destined to the emperors of China and Japan and, of course, to rich notables. In this model, married to stainless steel in its tint 316L, the lacquer’s effect is sublimated.
VENI VIDI VICI drew a case that combines simplicity and creativity. The complexity of the shape is obtained by projecting arcs of circles resting on a square seen from above. On the side, the case is characterized by a tight curve in order to obtain a balanced volume. The 44mm case comes with a satin finish in the direction 12-6 while the wafer is polished. The bezel is polished and is characterized by the checkered decoration made of black lacquer. In the bottom, the VENI VIDI VICI brand is engraved in the center of a laurel wreath.
The three strand watch-strap is perfectly suited to the case; it strengthens the personality of the watch with its central links decorated, in the same way as the bezel, with black lacquer in the shape of a wavy checkerboard. The central links are polished. The border links receive a satin finish while the wafer is polished. There are 2 x 3 links lengthening to allow the adjustment of the watch-strap length to your liking for a comfortable use. A triple folding security clasp enables you to open and close your watchstrap.
The decoration of the dial recalls the pattern of the waving checkerboard and enhances the character of the watch. Powerful numbers indicate the hours. The small hand rotates in a counter based on the rev counter of a car or motorcycle with a red zone. The minutes counter’s hand of the chronograph, under the START, expects a pressure on the button that triggers the running of the large second hand. Rotation after rotation, the minutes hand moves away from its position and reveals the goal of its race: the FINISH.
