Trasmissione Meccanica

What is more beautiful than mechanics?

The Watch Quote™ - October 4th, 2012

What is more beautiful than mechanics? Elements designed for their function without considering in the very least their aesthetics. There was a time when I used to watch the gear box taken apart and put back together with anticipation so that I could take a ride in the car.

Today, I look at it in a different way. I am inspired by mechanical parts and transform them into a timepiece.

The gear became the case of the watch. I transformed the disc of the clutch into an original dial while the crown of the watch is identical to the spline shaft (Tuscan mechanics call it “sedano” (the celery stick)) that transmits the rotations of the engine to the gear shift. The hands of the watch are like the ones on the compass found on the mechanic’s bench.
