Leave it to Meccaniche Veloci to Introduce the First
Real Improvement to the Driver’s Watch in 75 Years

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesThe driver’s watch first gained popularity in the late 1930’s. These innovative designs featured curved cases that were designed to be worn on the side of the wrist, instead of on top, like a normal wristwatch. This unconventional configuration placed the dial in line with the base of the thumb, so drivers could easily read the time without turning their arm or letting go of the steering wheel. Although wearing a watch on the side of your wrist felt strange to many, racing drivers loved these innovative timepieces because they made rally timekeeping extremely quick and convenient.

Meccaniche Veloci Chrono Driver Evo Watch - Dial ViewOver time, wearing a watch on the side of your wrist fell out of fashion and drivers watches began to emulate the style that aviators preferred, with extra large, simple round dials worn on top of the wrist. To make these conventional displays more readable while driving, manufacturers often re-oriented the dial so that twelve was in the normal 3 o’clock position.

Meccaniche Veloci is one of few manufacturers to recognize the wisdom of the original driver designs that manufacturers like Gruen and Hamilton pioneered in 1937. Instead of wearing the watch on the side of your wrist, they have developed a unique gimbaled brancard mounting that allows the entire case to be quickly and easily rotated to various angles by the driver for optimum visibility under any driving conditions.

The revolutionary Meccaniche Veloci Chrono Driver Evo Watch that was introduced at Baselworld 2013 gives today’s drivers the best of both worlds. Like early driver’s watches, the dial can be easily tilted to provide drivers with a perfect viewing angle without taking their eye off the road or their hands off the wheel. Like today’s popular driver styles, the Chrono Driver Evo has an oversized, clearly readable dial with full chronometer functionality.

To facilitate timing rally events, Meccaniche Veloci has positioned the Chrono Driver Evo’s chronograph pushers on either side of a top mounted winding crown at 12 o’clock. This practical configuration makes it much easier for drivers to start and stop the chronograph while driving. With a large red sweep second hand, a chronometer minute counter at 9 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 3 o’clock, and a small continuous seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, this remarkable watch is well equipped for timing events of almost any duration.
