Mercedes 320 Tourbillon

Mercedes 320 tourbillion was design as homage to Mercedes-Benz type 320, firstly introduced in mid-1937. This car was special because it was given an independent front and rear suspension, with coil springs at all four corners. This gave the car impressive road manners while keeping the passengers comfortable.
This watch was born from the necessity of creating purely car oriented watch. The main goal of this watch is to show the obvious resemblance with the Mercedes car brand pointing out elegancy above all. Highly precision and attention to details refers to 'German precision'.
Whole design is inspired by the instrument cluster, so in that spirit the routine of knowing the time has been broken. The hours and minutes are shown as miles (kilometres) in a racing scale, expressing the 'car feeling'.
The main impact was made by a tourbillion with the shape of a Mercedes logo, clearly pointing the brand identity.
