The Meccaniche Veloci Corsa Corta
A Watch Where Performance Has No Place to Hide

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesIn Italian racing circles, the term Corsa Corta, refers to the short stroke engines often used in motorcycle racing. The pistons in these specialized racing engines have a larger diameter than long stroke engines, which allows them to travel a relatively short distance on each cycle. This means that a short stroke engine can run much faster – up to 15,000 RPM.
