This year, from 5 - 8 May, another memorable event has been added to Eberhard & Co.’s rich programme of sponsorships in the world of vintage cars: the renowned Targa Florio, which has celebrated its 100th edition and at which the watchmaker has been the Official Timekeeper and presented a chronograph especially created for the competitors in this race.
Set up in 1906 through the enlightened genius and entrepreneurial spirit of Vincenzo Florio - a highly cultured man enamoured of his native land - the “world’s oldest and most famous” automobile race, an icon of Italy and of Sicily in particular, which has left its mark on the history of motor sports, looked proudly towards the future through a four-in-one event: Targa Florio Rally, Targa Florio Historic Rally, Targa Florio Classica and Targa Florio Historic Speed.
It has been set to be the motor racing event of the year, bringing together extremely valuable cars, great champions, crews from the four corners of the world, collectors and enthusiasts. The history of this discipline came to life again in the very places where it was born, passing on a culture which, besides being all-Italian, is part of our global heritage. The cars and the streets which saw the feats of great drivers such as Fangio, Varzi, Nuvolari, Merzario and Vaccarella featured once again prominently in the event.
The bond between the Swiss watchmaker, which has been producing high-quality timepieces since 1887 and which has been one of the major players on the old-timers’ scene for over 20 years, and exclusive cars goes back to 1992. It is a love that has endured over time and that is constantly being enriched by innovations such as this latest addition to the fold and the decision to create a special model dedicated to the racing enthusiasts lucky enough to have the honour of taking part in this edition.
Besides the race participants, some Champion V Targa Florio chronographs have also been given to selected celebrities that have accepted the invitation to be present at the anniversary.
