This exciting new addition to the family of Meccaniche Veloci watches, features a complication, which demonstrates the brands highly skilled watch making expertise. This high-tech watch is created for the true watch aficionado, maintaining the striking and unique design the Quattro Valvole has become renowned for, based on a four-phase engine piston. It is a timepiece that will not go unnoticed.
The Quattro Valvole 42 Three Hand Power Reserve introduces a revolutionary new innovation for Meccaniche Veloci; it has a unique movement. The four dials that were controlled by four independent movements have been adapted to one central dial, featuring four grooves, which house the various functions. The passage of time is now marked around the entire circumference of the watch. The groove on the upper right accommodates the date indicator, while the one on the lower right houses the winding reserve indicator, the one on the lower left contains the indicator for the day of the week and the one on the upper left displays the prestigious Meccaniche Veloci logo.
The addition of the power reserve complication provides the wearer with the ease of indicating the remaining time of the winding: when the watch is fully wound, it shows the maximum value on the graduated scale, which is 40 hours, the indicator slowly rotates towards 0 when the watch is not being worn and there is no mechanical movement, indicating that it is close to stopping.
It features a natural titanium case, which is also available with in-plane-bending (IPB) treatment, with a 42mm case diameter, which is unique for the Quattro Valvole and an anti-reflective, slightly convex, sapphire crystal glass, case front. It is also protected by a screw down, titanium bottom plate. The screw-type titanium crown with rubber lining located between hours one and two and 10 metres water resistance add to the practicality and refined sophistication of this timepiece. The
crown has three different positions of adjustment: the first position permits manual winding, the second is for rapid correction of the date and the third adjusts the time and the day.
The Quattro Valvole 42 Three Hand Power Reserve has a Soprod 9060 mechanical movement on an ETA 2892/2 base, with automatic winding. Like the individual spheres, the dial has luminescent indexes and numbers. Completing this exceptional timepiece is the stylish strap, made from superior quality materials, in rubber or leather. Available with the classical buckle or with a deployante it is attached directly to the case in a completely original way.
