    A new timepiece has been released to commemorate the infamous Nordschleife, and the legendary 24-hour races that took place there. The watch differs from conventional pieces due to its interesting face, which displays all 24 hours in the day as opposed to 12. 

    The watch is made in Germany using a Swiss movement and is enclosed in a sturdy 43mm stainless steel housing. It retails for €119.
