“A legendary model for a legendary race. -says Mario Peserico, General Manager of the Swiss Maison. – Since the 1930s, Eberhard & Co. has been connected to the world of motor racing. Today we create and dedicate watches to historical brands, such as Alfa Romeo and to unforgettable champions, such as Tazio Nuvolari, so it was natural for us to create a limited edition for the 20 years of the Rallylegend, one of the historic rally events to which we are most linked. “
The Nuvolari Legend Special Edition 20 ° Rallylegend is a self-winding mechanical chronograph. The dial is customized with the short version RL20 logo, while on the bottom, we find, 20 ° RALLYLEGEND, in its extended version.
The case is in steel and frames the black dial, with luminescent Arabic numerals, chrono minute counter at 12 o’clock, chronograph hour counter at 6 o’clock. The transparent sapphire crystal back, decorated with a “damier” motif, inspired by the start flag, allows you to admire the movement, embellished by the historic stylized Alfa Romeo Tipo 12 / C, the same with which the great driver won many victories.
The “vintage” look of this watch, of which 20 were produced, is enhanced by the antiqued leather strap, enriched for the occasion with yellow stitching, Nuvolari’s lucky color.
