Quattro Valvole CCM carbon fiber encased wristwatch

Carbon fiber products are all the rage these days. Lately, we introduced you to the 20 most luxurious carbon fiber creations and now, we have the world’s first carbon fiber encased wristwatch - the Quattro Valvole CCM. Italian watchmaker Mecchaniche Veloci has teamed up with Brembo, supplier of high performance brake discs, to create this carbon fiber timepiece. An upshot of four years of research, the Quattro Valvole CCM is made of carbon ceramic, the material which is used by Brembo to make high-tech brakes. The name Quattro Valvole comes from the four valves that Ferrari used in its 1984 model 308 GTS. The watch features four faces, showing independent Swiss mechanical movements. Crowns in hand-polished aluminum set the watch. The straps are made of same material that coats the crown of racing cars’ wheels. Since, with each Brembo disc yields just seven pieces, a limited number of watches will go into production every month.

The wristwatch is lightweight and its chic make will appeal to most carbon fiber lovers. The Quattro Valvole CCM carbon fiber encased watches, priced at US $15,000 each, are available with dials in a choice of red, black, yellow and silver.
