  • Catalogue Essay

    With an important heritage in producing some of the most desirable chronograph timepieces in the exiting period of the 1940s, Eberhard is certainly a familiar name. The Tazio Nuvolari Vanderbilt Cup chronograph ref. 31045 is a wonderful contemporary chronograph made to commemorate one of the most exciting motor races in history from Nuvolari, which was won on Long Island in 1936. Cased in a 42mm diameter stainless steel case equipped with a hinged caseback which can be open via a vertical slider fitted below the drown on the caseband. Once it is open, the inner caseback allows for the owner to personalise their personal messages. The transparent sapphire caseback laser inscribed with Tazio Nuvolari’s signature allows the wearer to admire the self-winding cal. 7750. Offered in excellent overall condition and with no reserve, the present timepiece is complete with its original guarantee and an Eberhard presentation box.

  • Artist Biography

    Eberhard

    Swiss • 1887

    From its earliest days, Eberhard & Co. has sought to bring innovation and precision to watchmaking. As early as the 1890s, the firm introduced a patented setting mechanism to its pocket watches, and in 1905 they introduced a digital system for reading the hours and minutes on a wristwatch. Throughout the firm's long history, they have produced high-quality chronograph watches, introducing their first chronograph wristwatch in 1919.  Highly sought-after by collectors, Eberhard's first split-seconds chronograph appeared in 1939. Another key model is the Scafograph 100, an extremely rare diving model introduced in the 1950s. In 2001, Eberhard & Co. made history with their Chrono 4 model, the first chronograph wristwatch with counters horizontally arranged in one row.
