| MPN: || 31030 || This watch is one of a series issued in recent years by Eberhard, a leading European watch brand, especially in Italy, to honor legendary Italian racing driver Tazio Nuvolari, a 1920-30 champion. The watch bears a small gold turtle logo on the dial, at the 9 position (a mascot symbol associated with Nuvolari) and his signature is engraved on the steel back of the watch. This is a chronograph with start/stop and reset modes, and has a screwdown crown, and a back held in place by 8 screws for water resistance to 30M. The face of the watch is black, with white luminous Arabic numerals at 1-5 and 7-11, with large diameter sub-registers at the 6 and 12. The leather band is signature Eberhard, 20 mm at the lugs, and shows few signs of use, as does the watch itself. An aftermarket deployment clasp is being used, but an E&C stainless steel tang buckle is included if you choose to use it. The watch uses non-reflective sapphire glass. A signature wooden box for the specific Tazio Nuvolari model is included with some papers. This watch runs perfectly and all timing functions, including the chronograph pushers and settings are operating as they should. The degree of water resistance was originally guaranteed to 3 atm. (about 45 psi) by the manufacturer, but has not been checked. The watch permits time-taking to 1/5 sec., up to 30 minutes in one sub-register and 12 hours in another, has a km/hr tachometer scale on the dial, and a miles/hr tachometer scale engraved on the bezel. The automatic chronograph movement is shock resistant, antimagnetic, has 25 jewels, and a glucydor balance wheel as well as a micrometric index regulator for fine adjustment of the watch rate. Watch comes with Operating Manual, and Original Guarantee issued in April 1993.
