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.
