Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole CCM Timepiece By Brembo

Posted in Car Accessories, Newsworthy, Racing by Suzanne Denbow | April 22nd, 2009 | 2 Responses |


Just in case you were beginning to run out of ways to turn your briefcases full of cash into hidden assets, Italian watchmaker Meccaniche Veloci and performance brake manufacturer, Brembo, introduced the $15,500 Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole CCM. Modeled after the four-valve cylinder head, the carbon-ceramic timepiece incorporates the use of four separate Swiss watch movements, all of which are controlled by a single discrete button. To create the precision-tuned instrument, Brembo employed the same techniques used to forge brake discs by forging together carbon fiber and durable ceramics using a pressurized water jet. The face itself is available in four color options, black, red, silver, or yellow, and either an alligator skin or high-grade rubber wrist strap, all of which comes tethered to a high-strength polished Titanium crown.

Bottom line: very impressive, but that price tag is far too rich for our Timex blood.

    One major flaw with that watch (after the price, of course) – it has far too many long Italian words for someone as lazy as myself to pronounce. So when you come to show off the watch it’s all like “Yeah, this is a $15,500 watch called the Mecha…mechnea… ma…. Aw hell, I bought it at Kmart for a fiver.”
