Press release

24-26 August 2012 – St. Moritz. Last weekend, Eberhard & Co. confirmed its passion for the world of vintage cars by taking part as Premium Sponsor in Passione Engadina, an exciting vintage car race in which only Italian-made cars made before 1982 can compete. The meeting took place in the splendid setting of St. Moritz and Engadina: engines, amidst technical and skill trials, like a real "rally", but also flavours and perfumes and with the innovative collections of Eberhard & Co., in the name of the finest Swiss watchmaking tradition.




The race has been held over two days: the Saturday has been dedicated to the “Umbrail Rail – St. Moritz Race”, with the teams ready to face the challenge of 3 different passes, a regularity circuit among spectacular mountains with the ability to offer unequalled driving pleasure. The Sunday on the hand has been devoted to the Elegance Competition in the historical centre of St. Moritz, a special location which also hosted the final award ceremony.

The Swiss Maison awarded the winning team of the category “cars made before 1947” with a Tazio Nuvolari chronograph and a Gilda model, while the winning team of the category “cars made before 1982” and “Sportcar” received respectively the Champion V. and the Traversetolo  models.
