Designer Guiliano Mazzouli is known for taking inspiration from everyday objects to design variety of objects from pens to watches. The Transmission Meccanica is latest to be added to this list. Launched at the SalonQP event in 2012, the watch is designed such that each of the individual design element on the watch is made from or looks like a mechanical part from a car. Hence the case of the watch is made from the gear, the disc clutch is the dial and hands of the watch represent compass found with a mechanic. It has a 43mm stainless steel case, the crown design is similar to that of the spline shaft. The red hands are reminiscent of speedometer dial markers.
It is seldom you find a watch crown to be positioned at the 2 o’clock position. I think this makes it easily distinguishable from other watches. Moreover, the watch looks masculine and would appeal to many people. I would love to have one.
