The finely machined movement is revealed through a sapphire glass with Tazio Nuvolari’s signature.

 

The 42 mm diameter of the circular watch case is generous, it is waterproof to 30 metres and it has a dial particularly striking, with a design that recalls dashboard instruments of vintage sports cars.

 

With a superbly refined self-winding movement (30 rubies, blue screws, perlage and Côte de Genève finishing) guaranteeing at least 42 hours of autonomy, this Eberhard & Co. chronograph has the classic trio of counters for hours, minutes and a second hand sweep; it is available on a leather strap or on a Charmant® steel bracelet with deployment clasp Déclic® (Patented)
