NUVOLARI-LEGEND_31137_43_CP_CMYK-1050x550

SWISS MAISON

There are some people in the history of sport that cannot be defined merely as ‘champions’. When they exceed the limits set by their time and enter the superhuman ‘Hall of Fame’ of those who have broken all barriers by crossing the line of the inconceivable, it is then that they undergo the natural progression that turns them into legends. Tazio Nuvolari, the champion driver who dominated the decades between 1920 and the late forties, is quite obviously such a sportsman. When, almost 30 years ago, Eberhard & Co. decided to celebrate his enterprise by creating a collection that bears his name, the figure of Tazio had become shrouded by the mists of time and all that had happened in the world of motoring since his era. It is also because of the efforts of the famous 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, even above himself and those closest to him, has been brought to light. His story has inspired a great number of initiatives; books have been written, songs have been dedicated to him, and the great old-timers event that bears his name brings hundreds of fans from all over the world to his homeland every year. All this has ensured that the fame he deserves that of being the greatest racing driver ever, lives on today.

NUVOLARI-LEGEND_31138_43_CA_CMYKEberhard & 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 down to a depth of 30meters and features a black dial with luminescent Arabic numerals, a minute’s counter at 12 o’clock, a hours counter at 6 o’clock and a spiral tachometer scale in km/hr in the center.

The movement can be admired through the transparent sapphire crystal base, which is secured by eight screws, decorated with a ‘chessboard’ image designed to look like the race-start flag, and customized with the historic stylized Alfa Romeo Type 12C in which the great driver obtained many victories. The ‘vintage’ look of the new timepiece is enhanced by the matching antiqued leather strap. This model is also available with a steel Charm bracelet.

Mysterious depths

MYSTERIOUS DEPTHS

For the presentation of one of its latest creations, Eberhard & Co. takes a walk down memory lane. It was the 1950s when the Swiss watchmaker, always inclined towards technical research and innovation, decided to take on a challenge that has, fascinated men – the sea and its mysterious depths. These were the years in which one of Hemingway’s greatest works was published – “The old man and the sea” – which dealt with subjects such as courage and man’s tenacity in the face of nature – the vast blue expanse, to be exact – and his merging with it.

These were the years in which Eberhard & Co. presented its Scafograf collection, designed to be worn by the adventurous and sporty with a dynamic spirit and love of life. Enriched over the years, the luxury collection was made up of steel models which were water-resistant to 100, 200, 300, 400, 750 or 1000 meters, with or without a rotating bezel and luminescent hour markers.

Mysterious depthsThe SCAFOGRAF 300 incorporated all the main features required of a dive watch: automatic with a sturdy, shock resistant steel case, a graduated black bezel to control elapsed dive time, a high-contrast dial with luminescent hands and markers and a stainless steel expandable bracelet; everything that intrepid divers and water-sports aficionados would need in the enthralling depths. The date at 3 o’clock – unusual for a dive watch – and the look of this model made it agreeably suitable for every day wear.

The 300 in the name of this watch indicated the depth to which it was water-resistant. Eberhard & Co. now presents a new edition of this model, reinterpreted in a contemporary way. The new SCAFOGRAF 300 is a mechanical, self-winding diving watch, with a 43 mm steel case, an unidirectional rotating bezel in ceramic, with luminescent markings on the first 15 minutes scale, curved sapphire glass and a helium escape valve at 9 o’clock.

The “galbé” black dial has luminescent applied indices and the date at 3 o’clock. The name of the model, the central seconds hand and the dots can be white, light blue or yellow. The hours and minutes hands are also luminescent. Water-resistant to 300 meters, the new SCAFOGRAF 300 has a screwed case-back personalized with an engraved starfish. The model comes with an integrated black rubber strap. The clean and precise lines of the SCAFOGRAF 300 are also well suited to a more casual-chic use out of the water.

To mark its 130th anniversary (1887 to 2017), Swiss watchmaker Eberhard & Co. celebrates and immortalizes the values and creations of the brand with the launch of the Chrono 4 130. Since the company was founded by Georges-Lucien Eberhard in La Chaux-de-Fonds – these values of craftsmanship, precision and mechanical expertise have made up the DNA of the Swiss brand whose name has become synonymous with tradition, constant research and innovation.

MECHANICAL EXPERTISE The Chrono 4 130 features a new 42 mm diameter case framed by a bezel with circular satin finish; the crown, personalized with the number “130”, is positioned between the two drop-shaped chronograph buttons. Three dial variants are available:

There are three dial versions available including grey with 4 grey counters with azure finishing and details in orange, argenté with 4 black counters with azurée finishing and details in blue and black with 4 black counters with azurée finishing and details in orange.

A rhodium plaque, secured to the main plate by two screws, shows the name of the model and the historic trademark of Eberhard & Co., as used for the first wrist chronograph in 1919. The sapphire glass case-back provides a view of the circular oscillating weight, finished with Côtes de Genève and customized with the number 130. This edition also comes with a grey-black carbon strap.

Scafograf 300

SCAFOGRAF 300

Eberhard & Co’s stunning Scafograf 300 has won the prestigious Sports Watch Prize at the recently concluded Grand Prix D’Horlogerie de Geneve 2016. Watch lovers in the Middle East now have an opportunity to own this timepiece. The Scafograf 300 along with other winners of the Grand Prix D’Horlogerie prizes will be on view at Dubai International Financial Center, as part of the Second Dubai Watch Week from November 15 to 19. This sleek diver’s watch with its legendary heritage will also be available across Eberhard & Co. points of sale across the region.

Scafograf 300The Scafograf is one of Eberhard and Co.’s iconic models. First launched in the 1950s this watch has truly evolved through time. It has grown into a true sports watch, with its water resistance increasing from 100 meters in the earliest models to up to 1000 meters with the Scafograf Super in 1983.

The latest avatar in the Scafograf line, the Scafograf 300 is a true inheritor of the timepiece’s winning DNA. The hands are big, legible and of the Baton-type. The Scafograf 300 is available in 3 accent colors: lemon yellow, azure blue and white. This is also reflected in the font-color for the model name which is also carried on to the name font. The hands, hour markers and them date window are enclosed by thick mirror polished borders and the whole dial setup is very legible and easy to read.

The watch has a deep black ceramic bezel that rotates effortlessly and has some quirky highlights. For example, the triangular arrow at 12 is filled with a small pyramid instead of the more common circle-shape.

The watch is sealed by a screwed case back. An engraved Starfish in the middle forms the center and adds a recognizable touch to the case back. The case has a helium escape valve at 9 o’clock and is covered by an anti-reflecting sapphire glass. Compared to the ancestor, the new Scafograf has grown from 42.5 to 43mm in diameter.

The integrated black rubber strap completes the look of a classy diver’s watch as it makes for a comfortable fit. It is emblazoned with an Eberhard-shield in the center close by the watch case. It comes with a standard personalized buckle, but can be ordered with an optional deployment clasp, which is a bit more optimal for dive purposes.

unique style

UNIQUE STYLE

Swiss watch maker Eberhard & Co’s iconic Gilda, was chosen by Elisa Toffoli, an artist with a unique style and an unconventional, never dull look, for her new video Bruciare per te (Burning for you). The video, has been on air as from 19 September 2016, and can be seen on all music TV channels of major networks. The video which is trending on Youtube already has more than 1.2 million views and is her third single, after the great success of No Hero and Love Me Forever, from the album On.

The singer-songwriter’s ninth album which marks her return to writing songs in English is different from the singer’s previous works as it has moved closer to electronic music and pop. The track list includes a duet with British singer Jack Savoretti and a trio with Italians Emma Marrone and Giuliano Sangiorgi (the singer from Negramaro).

UNIQUE STYLEEberhard & Co., specialized in the manufacture of highly technical timepieces, chose Gilda for Elisa, in a steel version with diamond indexes that is both simple yet precious at the same time. With the soft curvature of its elliptical case and the choice of materials, the timepiece celebrates and interprets the elegance and resourcefulness typical of today’s women. On this occasion it is indeed an extraordinary woman who is wearing this precious jewel.

Its harmonious lines enhance the artiste’s look with special flair as it bears witness to the intense moments brought to life within the story. Gilda has a satin-finish dial, a coquille version set with diamonds at 5 and 11 o’clock and a precious Chéri® steel bracelet with folding clasp personalized with “E&Co.”

Elisa was born in Trieste in 1977 and is an all-round artiste: songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. During her career, she has been involved in projects as video director, stage actress, photographer and writer. In a career spanning 19 years, her albums have reached the top ten in the Italian and international sales charts nine times, and her singles have achieved this 16 times.

The video was filmed in the magical Salento region, more precisely in the enchanting castle of Mesagne, near Brindisi. It stars an elegantly dressed Elisa who wanders through the rooms of the castle, with Gilda on her wrist. After the initial scenes, marked by the precious hands of the watch, memories begin to emerge in her mind, with a long flashback of her as a child grappling with a difficult father and starved of affection. Thus begins the story of a painful, complicated relationship.

In Italy she has received all the major prizes and awards on the music scene: from the Sanremo Festival to the Targa Tenco, from two Premio Lunezia awards to 14 Italian, Wind & Music Awards, from Festivalbar to Nastro d’argento, and a Premio Regia Televisiva television award. Her many other accolades include an MTV Europe Music Award and some beautiful pieces that have been part of the soundtracks of famous films.
