Rugby Star Martin Castrogiovanni Wears Meccaniche Veloci

Martin Castrogiovanni Admiring His Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole Limited Edition Watch


by John Sealander  

From Player of the Year to Brand Ambassador of the Year
It’s All in a Day’s Work for Rugby Star Martin Castrogiovanni

Meccaniche Veloci Watches30-year-old Martin Castrogiovanni is one of the most recognizable faces in international rugby. Loved by fans and feared by opponents, Castrogiovanni quickly acquired cult status among fans for his immense power and impressive scrimmaging techniques. “Castro,” as he is known to friends and foes, has already represented Italy in three Rugby World Cups and won the English Premiership Player of the Year Award during his first season with England’s Leicester Tigers.

It is no surprise that Castrogiovanni’s many achievements on the rugby field caught the attention of Meccaniche Veloci. This renowned Italian luxury watch maker has always found its inspiration in the world of speed, performance, and sport. Martin Castrogiovanni was selected to be Meccaniche Veloci’s new brand ambassador for the passion and proven performance he brings to the game of rugby.

Castro’s Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole Limited Edition

Castro and Meccaniche Veloci make a great team. The globe hopping rugby legend will be wearing the Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole 48 Four Strokes Limited Edition with a black IP plated titanium case and four independent Swiss made ETA 2671 automatic movements. This is the perfect watch for Castrogiovanni, who was born in Argentina, began his professional rugby career in Italy, and now plays for England’s Leicester Tigers. The Quattro Valvole 48 Four Strokes can monitor four different time zones simultaneously. The boldly masculine design is as tough and resilient as Castro himself, with a massive 48 mm case precisely turned from a solid titanium billet.


The watch is equipped with four titanium crowns, so each mechanical movement can be set independently. A scratch resistant sapphire crystal protects the beautifully machined dial and a premium quality strap is attached to the case by four titanium screws.

With his trademark long hair and beard, Martin Castrogiovanni is instantly recognizable. So is the Meccaniche Veloci timepiece on his wrist. In their own way, both of these sporting legends are one of a kind. Don’t let that stop you from wearing your own Meccaniche Veloci timepiece, however. If you’d like to see what a legend looks like on your wrist, contact an authorized Meccaniche Veloci dealer today and ask to see the amazing new Quattro Valvole 48 Four Strokes Limited Edition.

Meccaniche Veloci Only One Interceptor

by John Sealander  

An Important Relic of the Cold War Provides the Inspiration For One of
the Hottest “Only One” Timepieces Meccaniche Veloci Has Produced Yet

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesDuring the early 1970’s, the United States and the Soviet Union were still involved in a deadly competition to produce the most advanced weapons systems known to man. This Cold War, as it became to be known, resulted in iconic aircraft for both nations, including the Russian MiG-27 “Flogger.” The single engine MiG-27 was powered by a single after-burning turbojet engine and could reach speeds as high as Mach 1.77.

Although this iconic aircraft ended production in 1986 and has been retired by the Russian Air Force, its heritage lives on in the latest “Only One” creation from Meccaniche Veloci. The dial of the spectacular new “Only One” Air Interceptor edition has been fabricated from an authenticated remnant of a MiG-27 fuselage.

Like all of the previous timepieces in the prestigious Meccaniche Veloci “Only One” collection, each Interceptor edition is unique. Only three of these one-of-a-kind timepieces will ever be produced. There will be a single Quattro Valvole 48 Four Strokes version, a single Quattro Valvole 44 Chronograph, and a single Quattro Valvole 42 Power Reserve.

Each of these amazing timepieces is unique and all three have been rigorously documented and certified by Meccaniche Veloci. Three lucky people will not only enjoy a meticulously engineered luxury timepiece, they will also be the beneficiaries of a priceless piece of history. For the serious collector, the Meccaniche Veloci “Only One” Air Interceptor represents the opportunity of a lifetime. “Only One” watches are so rare and exclusive that if you already own an example from this amazing collection, you will want to own all of them.

The “Only One” Air Interceptor edition features a titanium case with a stealthy IPB black treatment. A single ETA 7750 automatic movement powers the Chronograph model. The Power Reserve utilizes a Soprod 9060 automatic movement, and the Four Strokes edition features four independent ETA 2671 automatic movements. All of these precision movements are Swiss made.

The Cold War may be over, but it spawned one of the hottest watches ever made. If you would like to own one of these extraordinary timepieces, contact an authorized Meccaniche Veloci dealer immediately. The MiG-27 “Flogger” was supersonic and the three available “Only One” Air Interceptor timepieces are going to go almost as fast.

Helicopter


by John Sealander  

One of the world’s most important helicopters continues to live at the heart of one of the world’s most exclusive timepieces.

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesMeccaniche Veloci’s exclusive Only One Collection made its official debut at Baselworld 2012. Each watch in this amazing “one of a kind” collection is constructed using actual components from the world of speed, like the fiberglass fairing from a racing motorcycle, or the magnesium flap from a supersonic fighter jet.

Now, Meccaniche Veloci is honoring one of the world’s most significant helicopters with the exclusive Swiss-made Only One Air Huey. The dial of this exotic creation has been fabricated from the airframe of an actual Huey helicopter. These extraordinary helicopters were used extensively during the Vietnam War for medical evacuation and were responsible for saving 1000’s of lives.

Meccaniche Veloci Only One Air Helicopter


Only a single example of the Only One Air Huey will be produced for each watch in the Quattro Valvole Collection. Each watch is totally unique, so the Quattro Valvole 48 Four Strokes Only One, Quattro Valvole 44 Chronograph, and the Quattro Valvole 42 Power Reserve each have their own one-of-a kind dial.

The construction of these unique timepieces has been rigorously documented and certified by Meccaniche Veloci. One lucky person will not only get an engineering masterpiece, they will also get a priceless treasure that is a genuine piece of history. For the serious collector, the Meccaniche Veloci “Only One” Air – Helicopter represents the opportunity of a lifetime.


The Huey made its first flight on October 20, 1956. Now, almost 56 years later, this celebrated workhorse will make its final flight to land on some lucky watch aficionado’s wrist. If you would like to become the owner of this extraordinary timepiece, contact your authorized Meccaniche Veloci dealer immediately.

The Huey became famous for the role it played in rescuing 100 U.S. soldiers stranded in the Vietnam jungle in 1967. With this amazing watch on your wrist, you could be the famous one this time.
