New Formula One Racecar

Italians know that a Scuderia is not an ordinary stable.
Watch aficionados know that it’s not an ordinary watch.

GV2 WatchesIn Italian, the word Scuderia refers to a stable reserved for racehorses. That’s why Italian drivers and racing teams adopted the word as their own to describe their country’s top motor racing teams. Today, there are dozens of Italian “Scuderia” teams, including some of the world’s most successful Formula One teams and drivers.

When GV2 decided to develop their own version of the quintessential drivers watch, they adopted the Scuderia name in honor of Italy’s proud racing heritage. The boldly styled GV2 Scuderia has everything today’s racing driver needs. The oversize 50 mm IP black case features a racing style dial that is easy to read at a glance while behind the wheel.

The large, color coded chronometer pushers can be used even while wearing driving gloves. In addition to its easy-to-use chronometer functions and a handy tachymeter scale on the bezel, this full-featured driver’s timepiece also includes a power reserve, an alarm, a second time zone hand, a day of the week indicator, and an extra large big date indicator.

The impressive Scuderia is powered by a reliable and trouble-free Swiss made ISA 8173 Quartz movement and is water resistant to 330 feet. A black, carbon fiber style dial has been paired with brightly colored hands and numbers, along with a matching genuine calfskin carbon fiber patterned band to enhance the racing appearance.

GV2 Scuderia Instruction Manual

The GV2 Scuderia includes a tachymeter scale, an alarm, a power reserve, an additional time zone hand, a day of the week subdial, and a date indicator. Figuring out how to use all these splendid watch complications could get… complicated.

Look through our informative GV2 Scuderia instruction manual below, and learn how to control all of the Scuderia’s unique functions!

A: Setting the Time

0.1 – Pull the setting crown at 3 o’clock to the third position and rotate either direction until the correct time is indicated on the silver timekeeping hands.

0.2 – When the time has been set, press crown all the way in again.

B: Setting the Correct Day

1.1 – Pull the setting crown to the third position and rotate counter-clockwise at least two full cycles until the correct day is indicated on the day sub-dial at 6 o’clock. The dial increments one day every 24-hours, so make sure you are aware if the current time is AM or PM.

1.2 – When the correct day is indicated, press the setting crown all the way in.

C: Setting the Date

2.1 – Pull the setting crown to the second position and rotate clockwise until the correct date is indicated on the date wheel. You should make this adjustment in the morning, so the date will not increment at noon.

2.2 – When the correct date is indicated, push the setting crown all the way in again

D: Setting the Second Time Zone Dial

4.1 – Press and hold the lower black pusher for two seconds to enter the time setting mode. You will hear a short beep when it is OK to set the red tipped second time zone hand.

4.2 – Press the black pusher again and hold it down continuously until this 24-hour dial indicates the desired time

4.3 – After three seconds without pressing the black pusher, the watch will automatically exit the setting mode

E: Setting the Alarm and Power Reserve Indicator

5.1 – Pull the setting crown to the second position

5.2 – Press the top red pusher until the small orange dial at 10 o’clock points to “E” on the Power Reserve indicator.

5.3 – When you are finished, press the setting crown all the way in again. The alarm function is on at this point. If you want the alarm to be off, press the red pusher again until the small orange dial returns to the off position.

5.4 – Press red pusher until the Power Reserve dial is in the “Off” position

5.5 – Pull the setting crown to the second position and rotate counter-clockwise until the red-tipped alarm hand is at the desired position.

5.6 – Press the setting crown all the way in again.

5.7 – Press the red pusher again. The small dial at 10 o’clock will first show the status of the power reserve for three seconds and then point to the “On” position to indicate the alarm function is active.

5.8 – The alarm is active until red pusher is pressed again and the power reserve dial returns to the “Off” position. The alarm can easily be turned on and off as desired by pressing the red pusher.

The Innovative Meccaniche Veloci Chrono Driver Evo Watch

by John Sealander  

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.

Meccaniche Veloci CCM Limited Edition


by John Sealander  

The same high performance material that brings Formula 1
racing cars to a stop breathes new life into one
of the world’s most exclusive timepieces.

Meccaniche Veloci WatchesBrembo, one of the world’s leading producers of disk brakes for luxury and sports cars, knows what it takes to bring a 200 MPH Formula 1 racer to a stop. They have developed a super-resistant carbon ceramic material that can handle the extreme stress and high temperatures associated with professional racing.

Working together with Brembo, Meccaniche Veloci has been able to utilize this unique, high-performance material from the world of racing to fabricate one of the worlds most exclusive and desirable timepieces. The new Meccaniche Veloci CCM Limited Edition is built around a custom dial made of the same high performance carbon ceramic material that Brembo uses to make their world famous disk brakes.
