Default Brembo present carbon-ceramic watch




Quote:
Because cars and watches share special elements of precision, style and function, both have also shared a long history together. This cannot be truer than in the Meccaniche Veloci Quattro Valvole CCM, a carbon-ceramic chronograph created in partnership with Brembo, the famous brake manufacturer. The chronograph highlights four independent Swiss movements set into an ultra-modern carbon ceramic face combining form with function in agreement to the four-valve configuration of current racing machines. The crown of the watch is made from hand-polished titanium and the face comes with four colors, including black, red, silver or yellow. To round off the design, the timepiece comes with black alligator hide or modern polymer. The limited edition timepieces are built exclusively in Italy with the carbon ceramic face, for example, custom cut with a 5,000 bar waterjet, consequently the finished product comes with a price tag that agrees with its exclusive characteristic, beginning at $15,500. In spite of its intricate and modern construction the operation of the watch is strikingly simple. For instance, winding is done by a simple wrist action, and a single button controls the adjustment for each individual ETA 2671 Swiss mechanical function

The design of the dial doesn't sit well with me, I like the idea of using carbon ceramics though.

^ Some people just really love watches, myself being one of them. I Timex from Walmart will keep time just as well and cost $20. Your statement could also be put towards cars. Why do people who only use their cars to drive on the street need some 500hp monster when a Honda civic would work fine.

On another note, that watch does look very nice and like the tachometer/gauge design of the dials.

The watch itself wont do that for you. But if you can spend 15K for a watch then you should have no problem finding a different girl every week to do that for you.

This is not meant for someone who is going to "save up" for one. This is meant for a wealthier audience who on a whim decides that one day they are bored and that they are going to go buy a Porsche, or something like that. Think of it this way, this to those people would be like the equivalent of you going out and getting a 50 or 100 dollar Timex or something.

Not everyone is on the same level. Just like there are people out there who say "I don't understand how whiteknighsti would spend $100 on a watch. The max I would spend is $40."
