Meccaniche Veloci presents the new Mud collection, an unrealised version of the Icon line with its distinctive four carbon-fibre dials. The lower two dials are skeletonise allowing the technical details of the Manufacture calibre MV8802 – a movement designed in-house by Meccaniche Veloci and capable of simultaneously handling four time zones – to be admired.
The Icon Mud collection is available in three versions: rose gold, natural titanium (exclusively for the Japanese market) and titanium with a-DLC “chocolate brown” finishing, an innovative and masculine colour that inspired the name of the whole “Mud” collection.
Meccaniche Veloci gives a new vitality to its iconic timepieces, recognizable for the unmistakable 49-millimetre piston-shaped case that explores new metal shades and an original aesthetics and technical association of the dials.
Meccaniche Veloci adds further technical appeal to a timepiece that embodies the Maison’s production philosophy where not a single detail is left to chance.
The strap is directly attached to the case via a specific system that does not require hugs. It is made of black leather with a stainless steel buckle in the natural titanium version, while it is made of brown leather with black stitching in the rose gold version defined as Icon Podium Mud.
The passion for watchmaking technology and the eternal inspiration of the world of engines combined with the certified 100% Swiss Made parts find a new expression in this collection.

This 100% Swiss Made high-end watch brand with an Italian soul was founded in Milan in 2006 with the QuattroValvole, a watch that instantly embodied the personality of the brand. In 2016, the company moved to the watchmaking district of Plan-les-Ouates in Geneva, becoming “Meccaniche Veloci – Genève” and creating timepieces with a distinctive aesthetic and technical content developed in-house. The profile of the cases in the Icon and QuattroValvole collections is inspired by the distinctive shape of engine pistons.
The watches are driven by the brand’s own movements, the calibre MV8802 for the four time zones and the calibre MV8880 that houses a tourbillon mechanism. Annual production is limited to a few thousand pieces.
References to the world of engines are numerous on the watches through materials, colours, and the collaborations that the brand regularly forges with brands associated with the automobile industry. Meccaniche Veloci boasts a following that includes prominent independent watchmaking enthusiasts from various sections of the sporting world.
The brand is currently distributed via an international network of 25 select multi-brand points of sale. Customers can also purchase online via its website www.meccanicheveloci.com. Its Bespoke Atelier customisation service produces unique pieces for individual clients.
