Three-time Formula 1 world champion Jackie Stewart once reverently called the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring the “Green Hell,” a moniker that has remained with this racetrack that has no equal around the globe. As an homage to the world’s most demanding 20.832 kilometers, there now is the extraordinary Nordschleife® “GREEN HELL EDITION” 24-hour watch.
The matte black timepiece made in Germany captivates with its sporty design and bright green watch face. What is more: Contrary to a conventional watch, the black numerals don’t just show 12, but all 24 hours in the day! This also makes the Nordschleife® “GREEN HELL EDITION” 24-hour watch the perfect companion for the annual 24-hour race on the Nürburgring. The black Nordschleife® 1927 Logo commemorates the inauguration of the legendary roller coaster circuit in the Eifel.
The new timepiece is an eye-catcher par excellence and thanks to its 24-hour movement offers lots of food for discussion. While the sweep of the minute hand is identical to that of a conventional watch, the hour hand’s familiar positions indicate different hours of the day. For example, the position of the hands that would indicate 9am on a standard watch would reveal that it is precisely 6pm on the Nordschleife® “GREEN HELL EDITION” 24-hour watch.
A Swiss movement ensures the watch keeps time with quartz precision. It is housed in a robust, electronically blackened XL-sized stainless-steel case with a diameter of 43 millimeters and black leather strap.
The Nordschleife® “GREEN HELL EDITION” 24-hour wristwatch sells for 129 euro exclusively at www.nordschleife.us.
