Eberhard & Co. Tazio Nuvolari Legend
The latest model in the Tazio Nuvolari collection celebrates the essence of the man and of the sportsman, consecrating him among those who will never be forgotten.
When, almost 30 years ago, Eberhard & Co. decided to celebrate the Italian champion driver Tazio Nuvolari by creating a collection that bears his name, the figure of Tazio had become shrouded by the mists of time. It is also because of the efforts of the Swiss Maison and the success of the ‘Tazio Nuvolari’ collection that this mist has lifted. In the past few decades, the impetuous, at times overbearing personality of a man who made his passion for sport a reason for living, placing it above all else, and who dominated the decades between 1920 and the late forties,has been brought to light.
Eberhard & Co. has been the main sponsor of the Nuvolari Grand Prix for over twenty years. In this role and through the many models of watches he has inspired, the Maison has helped enormously in paying tribute to the ‘Mantovano Volante’, proudly aware of the fact that the champion of technical perfectionism chose an Eberhard to accompany him in everyday life.
The Tazio Nuvolari collection mainly consists of sports watches, and many versions have been added to it over the years. Some of these have been inspired by great victories or enterprises realized by the champion. The latest, Nuvolari Legend, seeks to celebrate the essence of the man and of the sportsman, consecrating him among those who will never be forgotten.

Nuvolari Legend is an automatic timepiece with a steel case, available in two sizes: 39.5 mm and 43 mm in the Grande Taille version. The model is water resistant to 30 meters and features a black dial with luminescent Arabic numerals, a minutes counter at 12 o’clock, a hours counter at 6 o’clock and a spiral tachometer scale in km/hr in the centre.
The automatic movement can be admired through the transparent sapphire crystal base, which is secured by eight screws, and more particularly the oscillating weight which is decorated with the historical stylized Alfa Romeo Type C, in 18 ct. gold, in which the great driver obtained many victories, and the côtes de Genève finish. Th caseback is decorated with a ‘chessboard’ image designed to look like the race-start flag.
The ‘vintage’ look of the new timepiece is enhanced by the matching antiqued leather strap. This model is also available with a steel Charme bracelet.
