Swiss technology meets Italian design in Meccaniche Veloci’s new Icon Mud collection. To say that the Mud watches are distinctive would be an understatement. Presented with four carbon fibre dials, each watch is capable of simultaneously handling four time zones.
The Icon Mud collection is available in three versions – rose gold and titanium with a “chocolate brown” finish — a colour described as masculine and innovative and the inspiration behind the name “Mud.” The third watch is presented in natural titanium and is available exclusively in Japan.
Meccaniche Veloci designed the watches with a 49mm piston-shaped case. Each is powered by a Calibre MV8802 mechanical self-winding movement. The glass is anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and the caseback is mineral glass. The time is legible in the dark thanks to Super-LumiNova on the Indexes and Hands. Power reserve comes in at 48 hours, and each watch is water resistant to a depth of 50 metres.
Further technical appeal comes via the strap that is directly attached to the case through a system that does not require lugs. The strap is made of black leather with a stainless steel buckle in the natural titanium version, while brown leather with black stitching is presented on the rose gold version defined as Icon Podium Mud.
The Meccaniche Veloci Mud luxury timepieces are priced between €9,200 and €35,000 Euros.
