Contagiri Alfa Romeo 8C
Contagiri, the wrist watch dedicated to the Alfa Romeo 8C
To think of tomorrow without forgetting the achievements of yesterday. To remember the great victories from the past through the design and performance of an automobile without equals. Sport tradition, Italian passion and technical research are the values that have made Alfa Romeo a legend and where they find their perfect synthesis making evolution an emotion to live. The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione is born and the legend takes the road in a limited edition series. Giuliano Mazzuoli dedicates a version of Contagiri to the 8C Competizione in a limited edition series of 500 pieces reserved for the fortunate owners of the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. The dial of the watch is inspired by the rev counter in the automobile.
A one-hand retrograde that moves in an arc of 270°. At 12 o’clock the hand goes back employing 1/10 of a second repositioning itself always at the 0 (in reality it’s 12 o’clock) with the historic green four-leaf clover symbol on the dial. The numbering on the dial offers immediate legibility. The indicators between one hour and another indicate the minutes as follows: the first short line indicates 15 minutes, the long line at the center indicates the 30 minutes, and the other short line indicates the 45 minutes. The small hand that completes an arc of 360° does not indicate the seconds but confirms that the watch is running.
