Inspired by Speed, the Meccaniche Veloci Watch Display
at Baselworld 2013 was a Clear Winner With Visitors

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesVisitors to Baselworld 2013 discovered what many watch enthusiasts already know: Meccaniche Veloci is unique. This small Italian watchmaker produces handcrafted masterpieces in very limited editions that evoke the excitement and speed of European motor racing at it’s very best.

It didn’t take long for visitors to Baselworld 2013 to discover Meccaniche Veloci’s unique connection to the world of speed. The brand’s highly visible booth showcased not only Meccaniche Veloci’s racing inspired watch collections, it also showcased the actual racing cars that their most exclusive collections were made from.

Every watch in the exclusive Meccaniche Veloci “Only One” collection is literally one of a kind. To produce these unique and extremely exclusive timepieces, each watch is constructed using recovered materials from the world of speed. The dial could be fabricated from the fiberglass fairing of a well-known championship racing car, or the fairing from a racing motorcycle.

To make these watches, Meccaniche Veloci has been able to obtain actual body panels and components from famous racing vehicles and used them to create one-of a-kind timepieces. When a suitable component has been located, areas of interest are identified and then individually unique dials are cut from the material.

These recovered racing items, complete with the circular holes where material has been removed to make a dial, were proudly displayed in dramatic glass cubes at Baselworld to demonstrate the authenticity of the “Only One” concept. Since exotic materials like carbon fiber and magnesium are difficult to cut and machine, only a few of these exclusive watches are ever produced.

Although it was Meccaniche Veloci’s one-of-a-kind display that captured the attention of Baselworld visitors, the company makes other racing inspired watches as well. Racing inspired designs like the Quattro Valvole 48 Four Strokes, 44 Chronograph, Due Valvole and the exciting new Chrono Driver are also produced in limited numbers for discriminating watch aficionados.

A Meccaniche Veloci watch will never be a high volume item. These exclusive, racing inspired timepieces will always be produced to the company’s exacting specifications for a very specific audience. From the enthusiastic response that the Meccaniche Veloci booth received at Baselworld, this audience of speed loving watch enthusiasts is sure to grow in the years ahead.

Meccaniche Veloci Due Valvole Debuts at Baselworld 2012

by John Sealander  

The evolution of Meccaniche Veloci continues with the introduction of the new Due Valvole at Baselworld 2012.

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesIn just five years Meccaniche Veloci has already achieved what it has taken some watchmakers decades to accomplish. This young brand has literally taken the watch world by storm. Meccaniche Veloci’s celebrated Quattro Valvole line, based on the famous four-valve racing car engines, is widely regarded as one of the most innovative new designs in recent years.

Now, Meccaniche Veloci continues its evolution as a leader in industrial design and watchmaking innovation with a brand new creation: the Meccaniche Veloci Due Valvole. This exciting new timepiece, which makes its debut at Baselworld 2012, continues the Meccaniche Veloci tradition of combining motor engineering inspiration with the highest quality craftsmanship to produce truly unique timepieces.

Meccaniche Veloci Due Valvole Debuts at Baselworld 2012


The new 44mm Due Valvole features an innovative two time zone display that allows each of the two dials to be set separately. The larger dominant dial, reserved for the primary time zone, features a date window at 3 o’clock and has indices marked with an hourly scale. The smaller secondary time zone has its indices marked with a contrasting scale of minutes.

This breakthrough design, celebrating auto racing’s many famous two-valve engines, is a marvel of understated simplicity. The Due Valvole, like the celebrated designs that came before it, uses only finest materials, assembled by master craftsmen. The strap is attached directly to the case using four titanium screws. Two titanium crowns allow each dial to be set independently, while an anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal ensures that your view will remain unobstructed. The Due Valvole is powered by a premium Swiss-made movement and is water resistant to 33 feet.

While the boldly masculine styling of a Meccaniche Veloci timepiece isn’t for everybody, these breakthrough watches have acquired a loyal following among watch aficionados. With the introduction of the new Due Valvole at Baselworld 2012, Meccaniche Veloci’s reputation for creating the ultimate in high performance timepieces can only be expected to grow.
