• The Republic of Venice was a sovereign state and maritime republic in northeastern Italy, which existed for a millennium between the 8th century and the 18th century. It was a leading European economic and trading power during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
    Venice was a pioneer in glassblowing technology in Europe and made glasses, goblets, pitchers, dishes, bottles, vases, mirrors, jewellery, candelabra and decorative products of very high quality.

  • From the thirteenth century Venetians produced delicate, carefully blown sand–glasses as a time–keeping device for mariners. In particular, the continual search for innovation, the production of machinery and small mechanisms helped make famous Venice in the past as a district of precision manufacturing. Meccaniche Veneziane aims to launch a new golden age of Italian watchmaking by manufacturing automatic timepieces never made obsolete by new technology.
    Every Meccaniche Veneziane watch is handcrafted by skilled artisans with absolute accuracy for every detail according to the traditional features of the twentieth century.
