Quattro Valvole is a wristwatch born of an intuition, to produce a prestigious object based on the idea of a four-phase engine piston, the pulsing heart of the best competition racing cars. The watch is a mix of motor engineering and personality, which links the worlds of automobiles with luxury watches. The Quattro Valvole not only draws the spirit that animates it from the world of racetracks, but also its design and the essential components of the case and finishing. Thus, Meccaniche Veloci has created this special wristwatch, which is synonymous with exclusiveness, elegance and a strong personality.
The first model was born in aluminium, produced from a piston was introduced in 2006 with a limited production for distribution throughout the world. Following the success of the Quattro Valvole with the aluminium case, Meccaniche Veloci introduced new models of this innovative collection using titanium and successively other experimental materials inspired by engines world such as ergal, carbon fibre, carboceramic material and finally precious materials such as gold and diamonds.
The case, entirely produced from solid aluminium, has been obtained using the same hardening process as for the most performing engines, while the four cavities are produced by processing at the lathe: “Quattro Valvole” [four valves] for four dials with extremely high precision mechanical automatic Swiss movements. Special care is also taken in every detail of the watchband, which is made by artisan craftsmen from calf and is fixed to the case with four titanium screws. An innovative and absolutely original company in the world of watches, Meccaniche Veloci established important partnerships with leading companies in the motor sector, such as Dell’Orto and Brembo and experimenting with materials that had never been used before in the world of watches.
