In 2013, Swiss watch brand Paul Picot presented a limited edition Chronograph dedicated to Giuseppe Morandi, Chevalier OM and winner of the first 1000 Miglia legendary car race. Then, in 2014 it was the turn of Ferdinand « Nando » Minoia, a real pioneer of car racing; he won several races while driving prestigious cars such as Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, to name a few.
Given the popularity of those limited editions, Paul Picot will present this year a new series of 100 pieces of the Minoia 2 Chronograph. This time it will be in a black case (treated DLC) with the addition of a brushed finished bezel in fine steel. It will also be equipped with a natural rubber strap, which will give the watch a peculiar look. Each watch will be delivered in a precious wooden box, together with a book on the history of this legendary driver.
