The deep bond between Eberhard & Co. and the world of classic cars, and in particular the legend of Tazio Nuvolari, has been celebrated with a unique tribute. The Swiss watchmaker has once again taken inspiration from the superlative sporting history of the Mantuan driver, full of incredible anecdotes, unrepeatable performances and unbeatable records.
Just as Tazio Nuvolari loved to put himself to the test, pushing himself beyond his natural limits and experimenting with new driving techniques, Eberhard & Co. has made a brief detour from the road of wristwatches by presenting a Tazio Nuvolari Desk‐Clock.
The new model confirms the distinctly sporting look of the Tazio Nuvolari collection, with a diameter of 10.8 cm delimited by a polished bezel whose surface is treated with palladium. The clock is animated by a very silent quartz movement with striking seconds. The flat mineral glass reveals a black dial featuring a “perlée” area with 12 luminescent Arabic numerals profiled in red. Red is also the color of several other details like the central seconds’ hand, the driver’s signature and the initials “TN” on the white carapace positioned in the central opaque black area. The same color is also used for the stitching on the side of the watch that is covered by black leather. Tazio Nuvolari’s name is engraved on the removable case‐bottom.
