80,000 spectators invaded the Republic of San Marino for 4 days at full throttle, a record attendance for the 20th edition of the Rallylegend.
Eberhard & Co., sponsor and timekeeper of the event for years, did not want to miss the appointment. As always alongside the Brand, the two-time world champion Miki Biasion, Eberhard & Co. ambassador since 2016, sparked sparks aboard the legendary Lancia 037.
For the occasion, a Limited Edition watch was also created, consisting of 20 pieces of one of Eberhard & Co. most representative models among those linked to the world of speed, the Tazio Nuvolari Legend.
A self-winding mechanical chronograph, with a steel case framing a black dial customized with the event logo, with luminescent Arabic numerals, minutes counter at 12 o’clock, hours counter at 6 o’clock, central spiral tachymeter scale in km / h. The transparent sapphire back-cover is decorated with a “checkerboard” motif inspired by the start flag, personalized with the engraved model’s name.
In addition to the creation of this exclusive timepiece, Eberhard & Co. also titled the opening leg of the event, the Eberhard Time Challenge, which took place on the night of Thursday, October 13, and saw 185 crews compete on a 3 km track. The winners were Alessandro Furci and Andrea Nucita, both awarded with a Tazio Nuvolari Desk Clock, the exclusive table clock characterized by a polished bezel with a palladium surface treatment.
On Sunday, the final day, the driver Jari-Matti Latvala, together with Janne Ferm in a 1967 Toyota Celica ST 165, excelled in the Classic category and were awarded two chronographs from the Champion V collection, delivered by Miki Biasion.
In addition, Eberhard & Co. awarded another Champion V chronograph as a “Special Prize” to Finnish driver Kalle Rovanperä, new World Rally Champion 2022 and the youngest world champion of all time, who started rallying at the age of 8.
