Catalogue Note

This watch was especially designed for the legendary car maker Bugatti in the early 1920s. It is distinguished by the fact that it is shaped like the radiator grille from the car manufacturer. This is a watch that one finds on rare occasions in such a well preserved condition with its red enamel logo inscribed EB for Ettore Bugatti. This model was only produced in small series during the 1920s and given to close relations of  Ettore Bugatti such as important clients or close members of his team in the factory.
