Meccaniche Veloci, founded in 2006, calls itself a “creative time lab”. It seeks to bring some of the adrenaline and speed of the motor racing world into watchmaking. The result is some astonishing timepieces, like this Due Valvole that incorporates two different automatic ETA calibre 2671 movements (compared with four movements in the Quattro Valvole), offering two different time zones, each with its own hour, minute and second, and a date. Housed in a titanium case and fitted with a leather and rubber strap, the graphically striking Due Valvole is not shy of advertising its ‘breakaway’ status.
