2018 SHOWSTOPPER WATCHES OF THE YEAR: Meccaniche Veloci Quattrovalvole Tourbillon

Meccaniche Veloci QuattroValvole Tourbillon

Everything about the watchmaking of Meccaniche Veloci can be linked to motoring, and the company says its existence is the story of two souls living and pulsing together, enclosed in the same extraordinary timepiece.

The QuattroValvole Tourbillon is a prime example with its design nodding towards the four valves of a car engine’s cylinder.

The CHF 75,000 watch is made of 18ct pink gold and houses a MV8880 self-winding calibre driving a tourbillon, plus displays of three independent time zones, date and stop seconds on its carbon fibre dial.

The base movement and architecture are cleverly used across a family of related watches including one displaying four currency symbols that might appeal to the financial traders who can afford one.
