The Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole CCM is made of the same material as the high-performance brakesEnlarge Photo
Featuring four independent Swiss movements set into a high-tech carbon ceramic face, the CCM combines form with function in a nod to the four-valve arrangement of modern racing engines. The crown is hand-polished titanium and each face can be had in red, yellow, black or silver color. Straps can be had in a high-tech polymer or black alligator skin.
Built entirely in Italy of limited-edition pieces - the carbon ceramic face, for instance, is custom cut with a 5,000 bar waterjet - the watch is priced to match its exclusive nature, starting at $15,500.
Despite its complex and high-tech construction, the watch's operation is stunningly simple. Winding is accomplished by a simple wrist motion, and a single knob controls the adjustment for each ETA 2671 Swiss mechanical movement.
