Mechaquartz

TRADITIONS MEETS MODERNITY

Mechaquartz movements were first invented in Switzerland and Japan during the quartz crisis in the late 80's. In Switzerland, Piguet and LeCoultre were the first to invent this particular movement, while in Japan it was Seiko. Watchmakers wanted to bring back the feeling of a sweeping second hand that could only be found on a mechanical watch at that time. Our chronographs are full of those stories with this touch of modernity. Attractive details such as engraved pushers, domed and curved hands, highly polished indexes, circular and vertical brushed parts. Inspired by the 40's, made for today.

Crafted with care. Designed for details.

Crafted with care. Designed for details... Those words are the core value of Furlan Marri. Every product we design must have an extreme care for details, from the curved hands to the engraved pushers. From the sharp polished case to the packaging.

Our references

Furlan Marri pays particular attention to the legibility of the dials, with typefaces chosen for their lightness and uniqueness. Each dial has its own reference number to keep a record for the future of the brand.

Ephemeral References

In order to provide an optimal customer experience and be closer to our community, we aim to tell ephemeral stories about our products. Thanks to this, we can focus on the product in question and its world, at a specific time.

Each story (= new technical development) will therefore be produced for a certain time and proposed as a preorder. Once the references are sold, we will stop producing them and move on to another story. Our customers will have priority access to the new developments and products, for a certain time.

In the form of pre-sales, we will produce the exact number of orders received. This is to avoid any waste of stock. We will not take orders in advance and will not have waiting lists for our products, to avoid frustration when changing collections during the year. We will also propose a permanent collection in order to have some choice all the year. When a permanent collection is out of stock, we will have to produce them again.

The movement. An interesting story to tell.

Mechaquartz movements were first invented in Switzerland and Japan during the quartz crisis in the late 80's. In Switzerland, Piguet and LeCoultre were the first to invent this particular movement. Because of quartz movements, watchmakers wanted to bring back the feeling of a sweeping second hand that could only be found on a mechanical watch at that time. They invented a mechanical module that could be paired with the accuracy of a quartz battery. In Japan, Seiko took an advantage by proposing this movement to the actual market. Today, Furlan Marri wants to tell this particular story of "Mechaquartz", as it is also part of the History of watchmaking.

The packaging. An experience full of stories.
