The quality of Meccaniche Veloci watches finds its expression in the uniqueness of this Limited Edition collection. Quattro Valvole − the timepiece known worldwide for its famous piston with four valves – incarnates in its evolution all the company’s enthusiasm for new materials, thoroughly exploring the universe of speed and capturing its elements inside this Limited Edition collection.
The technical characteristics of Quattro Valvole watches make them authentic jewels of mechanical engineering. Designed for the most exuberant male wrists, Quattro Valvole models combine a titanium case with a carbon or titanium fibre dial. With the exception of the four subdials the whole dial is made of these thin but very resistant fibres, which are used in extreme sports for their high technical performance.
Each cavity’s function varies according to the model: Quattro Valvole 48 Four Strokes, Quattro Valvole 44 Chronograph and Quattro Valvole 42 Power Reserve. The weaving of the precious carbon or titanium fibres produces an iridescent effect on the dial, creating a bold and unmistakable contrast with the solid colour of the four valves.
Finally, the collection also includes watches whose dials have been painted in the same shades and following the same procedures used for the body of luxury cars. Inside the case, which is equipped with rubber-covered titanium crowns and buttons, are high precision Swiss-made movements. The uniqueness of these timepieces is further enriched by their high-quality finishes, which respond to the dynamic character of the models: first-class straps, traditional titanium closures, slightly convex anti-reflection sapphire crystal and a water resistance that allows these watches to reach a 10-bar depth.
The excitement of Quattro Valvole watches has been envisaged in an exclusive limited production of only 250 specimens for each model and material.
