The Nurburgring, considered by man as one of the most grueling and demanding race tracks in the world, is turning 85 years old.
To mark this special occasion Nordschleife is releasing a commemorative, 1927 24-hour timepiece that pays homage to the legendary race track. The stainless-steel timepieces will be made available in either 1.4" or 1.7" cases dressed in either black or white. A unique characteristic of this watch is the 24-hour set-up that takes the place of the 12-hour configuration you’d find in most timepieces today.
The 24-hour configuration was done particularly to honor the 24 Hours of Nurburgring endurance race, regarded as the most famous race to be held in the iconic race track.
Pricing for the watch is pretty affordable, too. For the smaller version, you’re going to have to shell out a $110 while the larger version retails for $140.
Unlike some of the special edition timepieces that are being released these days, the Nordschleife 1927 24-hour timepiece sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
