With Nereide Quadrilobato, the latest addition to the widely appreciated Nereide diver series, Meccaniche Veneziane brings tradition into modernity once again. The dial of this elegant timepiece celebrates Venice heritage by featuring one of its most recognizable and iconic architectural elements, the “Quadrilobo”.
The BK7 Crystal has exceptional physical properties, is lead-free, relatively lighter and of higher quality than other glass crystals. Its properties are: low dispersion (with Abbe numbers around 60), the low refractive index (≈1.52) and high clarity. For these reasons, after a long research and development process, we decided to produce the new inserts with Nereide bezel in this material.
Only 100 Nereide Quadrilobato Limited Edition were produced for the most iconic and Venetian timepiece Meccaniche Veneziane ever produced. In addition to the official documentation, each watch has an engraving on the side of the case that certifies that it belongs to this limited edition.
For this Limited Edition of Nereide, we designed and engineered a new caseback to show the Swiss Made MV285 automatic movement. In particular, extremely fine sandblasting was used on the movement bridges to provide the watch with a more modern look. The golden rotor with Côtes de Genève finish, on the contrary, is the classic element, present in each of our creations.
The MV285 movement is made by the Swiss manufacturer Landeron (Landeron24 base), known for the manufacture of mechanical chronograph calibers since 1925. The caliber features many decorations such as Côtes de Genève, Gold 3N treatment, and Sandblast finishing. It is equipped with 25 jewels and has a power reserve of 40 hours
We do believe that every detail is important in order to fully satisfy our customers' requests, and in this sense, the package certainly plays a fundamental role. Nereide Quadrilobato Limited Edition is available in a specially designed custom package, which depicts the Quadrilobo, the most famous architectural element in Venice, synonymous with art and classicism.
In addition to the various documents available with each Meccaniche Veneziane watch, a special certificate has been included indicating the exact number engraved on the case. This detail is essential to certify belonging to this Limited Edition consisting of only 100 pieces.
