The Gaisberg races, traditional classic car rallies held in and around Salzburg, will take place from 30th May to 1st June this year, celebrating their 90th anniversary at the same time. The German watchmaker Union Glashütte is a proud partner of the races and has chosen to mark the occasion with the global launch of a very special timepiece, limited to just 30 models. This special edition of the Noramis Chronograph will be available from the end of May, exclusively at KRUZIK Uhren & Juwelen in Salzburg.
Sporty elegance with a retro feel: With the "90 years of the Gaisberg races" Noramis Chronograph, Union Glashütte are really showing the world how it's done. The stop function unites the stylish simplicity of this watch line and its sporty inspiration. Carefully designed details and high-quality finishing – both inside and outside – emphasise the classic look of the watch. Taking inspiration from the logo of the classic car event, the white dial features chronograph totalisers and a tachymeter scale in a shade of green that is reminiscent of the legendary British Racing Green. The special engraving in German on the case bottom reads "90 Jahre Gaisbergrennen" ("90 years of the Gaisberg races") in honour of the watch's special connection to this motorsport event.
Although the design has an unmistakeably nostalgic flair, this timepiece features some extremely modern components. For instance, the automatic movement has an attractive power reserve of up to 60 hours and the mesh strap fits comfortably on the wrist. The special edition is presented elegantly in an exclusive high-quality wooden case with an additional strap – the ideal gift for any classic car enthusiast.
