Meccaniche Veneziane is an innovative Italian startup that was born in May 2017 on the crowd funding platform Kickstarter. The brand is the successful outcome of the partnership between two ambitious brothers, Alessandro Morelli and Alberto Morelli. The brothers who share passion for vintage timepieces realised that Venice which was an absolute pioneer in the world of horology had seen a decline in the Venetian watchmaking tradition over the centuries. Bringing back the illustrious tradition of Venetian watchmaking to the 21st century became their challenge. Inspired by the clock tower in Venice an early Renaissance building, the brand logo draws inspiration from the cross on the top of Saint Mark Watchtower, which is considered the symbol of timekeeping in Venice. The firm currently retails in over 50 countries, such as the USA, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Japan, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and will now be available for discerning watch lovers in the Indian subcontinent .
