The Clock Tower in Venice is an early Renaissance building on the north side of Piazza San Marco, leading to the Merceria. One day, Alberto and Alessandro, two brothers sharing a huge passion for vintage timepieces, decided to visit the ancient building and they got impressed by the vintage clock mechanism inside immediately.
A clockwork from the 16th century
After some research, they found out that Venetian watchmaking tradition had declined over the centuries. How could this amazing craftsmanship be lost? Their biggest challenge became it to bring back Venician watchmaking tradition to the 21st century.
The two founders shared the same concept and decided to launch their watch start-up called Meccaniche Veneziane which literally means “Mechanical mechanics from Venice”. The brand logo draws inspiration from the cross on the top of Saint Mark Watchtower, which is considered the symbol of timekeeping in Venice. Now they use highly precise and well built Swiss made Automatic CAL.MV297 movements.
The current collections: Arsenale, Nereide and Redentore
These watches feature three different collections: Arsenale, Nereide and Redentore. The Redentore collection features influence from a famous Venetian building, while the Nereide takes its inspiration from a Venetian submarine of the same name. The Arsenale is inspired by the many ships docked in the Royal Shipyard within the Serenissima Republic. All of these watches are durably made and intended to outlast decades of wear, making it possible for you to pass down the beauty of 16th century Italian watchmaking to those you love.
Alongside the already beautiful timepieces, the Meccaniche Veneziane watches come with genuine Italian leather watch straps. Each one of them has been made by hand in Italy in order to provide you with the finest vegetable tanned leather around. The raw hides from Tuscany offer an unparalleled experience and the resulting patina is just as unique.
