Based in Milan, Meccaniche Orologi Milano (M.O.M.) is a small, family-run studio whose work is infused with Italian tradition, technological precision, and a modern ethos. M.O.M.'s exquisite works finely balance contemporary and classical design, horological innovation and tradition, and Italian artistry and precision. Informed in part by a nineteenth-century epicyclic gear design that resembles the motion of planets around the sun, the works are custom built for you today with the skill and ingenuity to last generations.
Indianapolis Speed Twin's carbon fibers, rhodium plating, and leather form a shiny dashboard that was created with the iconic Indianapolis track in mind. We race and create with a frenetic and cyclic search of new forms, colors, materials, and technologies—dynamic and too eager to stop. Time is the common element. It is what Indianapolis drivers try to beat and what M.O.M. maintains for generations.

Inspired by iconic sports cars and manufactured with the latest clockmaking technology, Indianapolis Speed Twin's is Alessandro Rigotto's vision of how a racing pendulum clock should look. It is a timekeeper in a clean, minimalistic style where every detail, material, and design solution has been carefully selected to convey a sense of drive, adrenaline, and dynamic energy.

Little Venice is an homage to Venice, the city of waterways. The minimalist style is paired with reclaimed Briccola wood sourced from the poles used for navigating the canal—wood that has been aged and shaped by the Venetian lagoon. This wood is then enshrined in this luxurious timepiece reflecting the charm and fragility of Venice.

Liberty is dedicated to nostalgia, creativity, and above all, freedom of imagination. Inspired by the early twentieth-century Art Nouveau school called “Liberty.” M.O.M. brings back this historic decorative style and encourages each client to become an artist by designing their own clock with custom etching.

Square and elegant, Vivo's smooth lines and walnut cover convey a vintage ethos. A tribute to the 1970s, Vivo reflects the ever-present chic and futuristic hopes that permeated that decade. The golden sequence of its clockwork floats in elegant contrast to the clock’s gleaming black background, simultaneously harnessing the complexity of timekeeping and the timelessness of minimalist design.

Meccaniche Orologi Milano (MOM) was founded in 2016, by Alessandro Rigotto—a member of the prestigious Horological Academy of Independent Creators (AHCI).
Alessandro grew up in Milan with an interest in math, engineering, and art. Following studies at the State University in Milan and work as a designer and programmer, he became an Associate Member of The British Horological Institute where he pursued his passion for clockmaking.
In 2012, Alessandro began engineering and producing clocks for Italian and French luxury brands. He was drawn to a profession that combines beauty, elegance, grace, innovation, quality, precision and intellect—concepts innate to his lifelong passion for mathematics, physics, engineering, and aesthetics. Clockmaking is at the core of his lifelong pursuit to grow, develop, evolve, and innovate.
“Our declared aim is to export the passion and the spirit of Italian culture as well as the experience and the quality of 'Italian made' into the sector of Time making while paying tribute to modern design and technological features. In all our timekeepers, from the grandfather to the table clocks, we strive to create the perfect union of modernity, innovation and tradition in order to give birth to a timepiece of high quality, unique in its kind that will last for generations.” –Alessandro Rigotto
