About Tazio Nuvolari Collection
This collection is dedicated to to a man who became a legend: Tazio Nuvolari, the greatest car racing myth of all times. “Tazio Nuvolari” is a mechanical automatic winding chronograph, water-resistant, with screw-in crown, sapphire glass and black dial.
The special pearl-finish of the caseback, secured by screws, and of the bezel, drew inspiration from the vintage racing car instrument panels. The engraving of the driver’s signature, and the stylised image of the mascot tortoise – given to the great Nivolaby Gabriele D’Annunzio, with the dedication
“To the fastest driver in the world, the slowest animal” – make these chronographs absolutely unique.
The caseback of the “Gold Car Collection” models is transparent to reveal the beauty of the movement with its high-grade embellishments and the rotor with its equally as subtle engravings depicting a stylised 18 ct. gold replica of that Alfa Romeo Tipo 12/C which the great Flying Mantovanian used to drive to his impressive victories .The collection also boasts particular éditions spéciales.
In 2012, Eberhard & Co. celebrated the 120th anniversary of the birth of Tazio Nuvolari with the “Tazio Nuvolari Data” model, an automatic mechanical chronograph dressed in a 43 mm steel case.

The “Mouvement Gravé” edition features a precious hand engraving on the movement and on the 21 ct. gold rotor, available upon request on some models in the “Tazio Nuvolari” collection.
