News in fast forward.
Silverstone follows the Nürburgring
There are many historic race tracks in the world. Silverstone is definitely one of them. We were able to convince the Silverstone officials with our Asphalt Watch concept and are now looking forward to the second COBLOR model. The collection is growing! In 1950, the first ever Formula 1 World Championship race took place at Silverstone.
Pre-Series models and delivery of the first series
Our final pre-series models will be delivered on 15 June. These are models that have been created from the final moulds of the series production. Based on these models, final optimizations can be made before the first series production of the NÜRBURGRING ASPHALT 1 (NA1) starts. An important step towards quality assurance!
We hope to be able to keep to the planned delivery of the watches to our customers by the end of July at the latest. This is our biggest wish. However, due to the exceptional global economic situation and the stagnation of the production and supply chains, delays may happen. We promise to do everything we can to ensure that you receive your watch on time.
The No. 1 will be auctioned off
The highly sought-after limited edition model 001/500 of the NA1 will be auctioned off at the end of the year to benefit the flood victims of Ahrweiler. We have already held initial talks with the renowned auction house Phillips.com.
Optimizing the rotor
A rotor is responsible for the energy in our movement. More precisely, the Nürburgring rotor. We have optimized it a little and applied an asphalt texture on the surface. You can see the result above in the sequence of pictures.
6.111,30 EUR – a price with meaning
No doubt, a watch of high quality and limited edition from Switzerland has its price. But did you know that our price also has a meaning? On 28 May 1983, Stefan Bellof drove a record of 6:11.13 minutes on the Nürburgring Nordschleife that would last for decades. A record that lasted for over 30 years.
Social media raffle with the Nürburgring
Our watch is an officially licensed product of the Nürburgring GmbH. As part of our partnership, we will be announcing a competition on the Nürburgring’s social media in a few days. The prize is the 027/500 model of the World’s First Asphalt Watch. Stay tuned and take part!
