Description

Following the success of the Trasmissione Meccanica line, a new timepiece deriving the imagination and the passionate creativity of the Florentine designer Giuliano Mazzuoli introduced the chronograph version of Trasmissione Meccanica. This timepiece is a new expression of Tuscan creativity that stems from the artisanal tradition, and is enriched with a contemporary equilibrium and elegance.
Like all the watches he has created over the years, the designer Giuliano Mazzuoli takes his inspiration from everyday objects even for “Trasmissione Meccanica.” This watch comes from the passion that links him to the world of automobiles thereby cultivating a strong tie with the emotions that come from that world.
After coming out with the famous “Manometro” watch, which originates from combining a watch to the idea of a pressure gauge, followed by the much talked about “Contagiri” that takes inspiration from a tachometer of a race car, the emotions that the sound of the engines makes, and the simplicity of the instrument found on every car’s dashboard, it is the turn of “Trasmissione Meccanica.” Trasmissione Meccanica is also inspired by an mechanical instrument, but this time it’s a mechanical transmission.
The latest watch in the Giuliano Mazzuoli collection derives from an automobile transmission where the gears of the transmission has been transformed into the case of the watch and a part of the clutch has become the dial. The watch almost has the scent of a mechanical workshop, it respects the traditions of all of Giuliano Mazzuoli watches, and has the ambition to be something more than just an instrument to measure time.
Designed in Italy and handcrafted in Switzerland with a movement and complication of high-quality Swiss watchmaking, the chronograph version of Trasmissione Meccanica is faithful in form and design to the original “Trasmissione Meccanica” watch. The stainless steel case has a large dimension, the crown is positioned at 2 o’clock, and the chronometric push buttons are to the left of the case with the sub dials positioned at 2 o’clock and at 8 o’clock.
Mazzuoli asks “What is more beautiful than mechanics? Taking elements designed for their function without taking the aesthetics into consideration at all. I used to frequently watch the transmission of a car being taken apart and then rebuilt while I waited anxiously to be able to take the car for a ride afterwards. Today I look at it in a different way. I look at it in such a different that I take inspiration from the mechanical part, and transform them into a timepiece. The gear has become the case, and the disc of the clutch into an original dial. The crown that is used to wind and set the time is identical to the spline shaft (the mechanics in Tuscany used to call it the “celery stick”) that transmits the rotation of the motor to the gears. The hands of the watch are inspired from a sort of compass that used to sit on a mechanic’s bench.”
